In his second and concluding article in defense of creeds, Greg Uttinger on Chalcedon writes about the development of the Apostles Creed.
I was a little disappointed by this, though I love the creed and its use in worship. It's just that the title--the Apostolic conection--makes it slightly more palatable to primitivists who reject (or think they reject) any use the Church tradition in hermeneutics. As Uttinger points out the dates of the creed well past the death of the Apostles, the connection is often made for the uniformed Evangelical Primitivist.
I think the harder argument would have been another creed, and would have made for a better argument. However, if he felt the Apostles was the best, then the point should have been made that the Apostles' connection was given to creed because it was the traditon of the Church and any belief aligning with the traditon had the Apostolic seal of orthodoxy.
