AMEN. There is not a single word of Christ dying for our sins
in that creed. Sure, it says that He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into death. On the third day He rose again...
But not ONE WORD about the REASON He was crucified, died, was buried and rose again. The WHOLE GOSPEL is MISSING.
Lazarus died, was buried and rose again. That doesn't mean he died FOR OUR SINS.
What is missing is the one thing that cannot be missing: FOR OUR SINS.
Just a mistake? An overlook on their part? You tell me...

You make a good point...I wonder if we could take that creed and insert...”while he suffered under Pilate, it was for our sins he was crucified unto death”
When read that way, the Creed suddenly takes on a whole new shine and aroma!

(Christ came not to make man into God but to restore fellowship of the Godhead with man.)
FOR OUR SINS does not fill their coffers
They have been so snookered
