Asleep at the (theological) switch

Our thanks to an alert reader from the UK who pointed out a significant error in the October 1 issue (“The Belgic Confession and Missions [5]”). Athanasius was included among the “heretics and false teachers” (mentioned by name in Belgic Confession, Article 9) who denied the doctrine of the Trinity. Of course, Athanasius is mentioned at the end of Article 9, not as one of the heretics but as the (supposed) author of the creed that defends the doctrine of the Trinity.
