Amen to That
“I think that all these doctrinal statements that all the congregations come up with over the years are basically just not very worthwhile. I don’t mean to sound mean toward the people who came up with them. I understand in the past there have been many heretical movements, and we still need to maintain sound doctrine…But I think our real doctrine is that doctrine that is born out in our character.
I think you can profess the Apostles’ Creed until Jesus returns, but if you don’t love somebody, you never were a Christian…
I am a Christian because I have seen the love of God lived out in the lives of people who know Him. The Word has become flesh and I have encountered God in the people who have manifested (in many ‘unreasonable’ ways) His presence–a presence that’s more convincing–it is a presence that’s compelling.
I am a Christian, not because someone explained the nuts and bolts of Christianity to me, but because there were people who were willing to be the nuts and bolts.”
