Daft Question #3

September 26, 2010

Why are Christians so reluctant to confess to what they actually believe?

  1. Eh? Perhaps because the ones you may be referring to endeavour to be considerate of other people’s beliefs and also assumed that any literate fellow brought up in Europe or the Americas would already be familiar with the creeds.

    Just in case there’s any doubt, here is what a Christian ought to believe or at least aspire to believe:

    “I believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible:
    And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, Begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, 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 for our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man, And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead: Whose kingdom shall have no end.
    And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord and giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Proophets. And I believe one Catholick and Apostolick Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the Resurrection of the dead, And the life of the world to come. Amen.”

    Hope that helps.

    Noteworthy that you refrain from phrasing your beliefs by means of your own able pen, Mr Hurley.

    May i infer that, to use the crude vernacular, you believe in an immortal soul?

    Or is it that you merely feel you ought to aspire to such a belief?
