The Apostle’s Creed, History Forgotten?
The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
Just wondering why more Christians today dont know creeds like this, or many other important parts of Church history? Any thoughts about how we became so short-sighted? How is it that we so quickly forget about the teachings, the triumphs and failures, the lessons learned, and the battles fought of the members of Christ’s body that came before us? Perhaps we should return to the first part of Hebrews 11 that reminds us that a great cloud of witnesses surounds us in order to help us seek a deeper faith. Maybe we should be humble enough to think that we can learn from those who came before us. Finally, I hope that we leave something worth remembering and looking back upon, for generations to come. Shalom.
