“It is the very truth of God and not the invention of any man”
~Rich Mullins, Creed
I had a friend tell me once that his denomination’s members were “not creedal people.” I realized later it was just his way of saying that he didn’t want to be nailed down on anything. Some of doctrines should be written in pencil, not ink, because as we mature in Christ and grow in both grace and knowledge, we realize that the things we held as absolutes may not be exactly as we think. However… no wait, let me put that in capitals… HOWEVER, there are some core beliefs which should be not subject to negotiation; the basics, the essence of the Christian faith summed up in a few short sentences that we should “always be ready to give account” concerning.
