1 Loving God With All Your Mind Discipleship in the Christian Empire

2 Mark 12:29-31 Jesus answered, “ The foremost is, ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. ’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ’ There is no other commandment greater than these. ”

4 Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore I exhort you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a sacrifice – alive, holy, and pleasing to God– which is your reasonable service. Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect.

6 Arius’ Song The uncreated God has made the Son A beginning of things created, And by adoption has God made the Son Into an advancement of himself. Yet the Son’s substance is Removed from the substance of the Father: The Son is not equal to the Father, Nor does he share the same substance, God is the all-wise Father, And the Son is the teacher of His mysteries. The members of the Holy Trinity Share unequal glories. The uncreated God has made the Son A beginning of things created, And by adoption has God made the Son Into an advancement of himself.

8 “He [Jesus] would not have known the inner- most recess of the divine mind. Moreover, as a creature made by God, Jesus was liable to change and... to sin... Jesus was subordinate to the Father, not only in the functional sense that he came to earth to do the Father’s will, but in the metaphysical sense of being a creature subordinate in his essence to the Father.” Mark Noll in Turning Points, pgs “He [Jesus] would not have known the inner- most recess of the divine mind.

9 Council of Nicea We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible...

10 Council of Nicea And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten of the Father, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father. By whom all things were made; who for us men, and by our salvation came down and was incarnate and was made man; he suffered. And the third day he rose again, ascended into heaven, from thence he shall come and judge the quick and the dead.

11 Council of Nicea And in the Holy Ghost.

12 Council of Nicea And those who say: "There was a time when he was not", and: "Before he was begotten he was not", and: "He came into being from nothing", or those who pretend that the Son of God is "of another substance" [than the Father] or "created" or "alterable" or "mutable", the catholic and apostolic church places under a curse."
