The New Evangelical Christian Creed

By Rob

I am a Christian I’m just not obliged to acknowledge the founder

I love Jesus But not enough to obey his teachings

His ways are not my ways My ways are my ways

I believe in being salt of the earth as long as that means “making the world a better place”

I believe in the Bible but it isn’t factual

I believe God spoke to us in His Word but personal revelation can trump his Word at any time

The Bible speaks words of truth to me but those words can mean whatever I want

I believe in Heaven and Hell but what kind of God would condemn you to hell?

Jesus said I will be outcast, set apart and persecuted but I believe we should ignore our differences and unite by our similarities

I believe in equal rights for all people of all faiths, lifestyles and preferences Just not for Bible-believing Christians who are the ones keeping the church from growing

God’s Son Jesus was beat, tortured, starved, stabbed, whipped and abused but God has a wonderful plan for me to prosper and not harm me

I believe we have to be tolerant of everyone except those who don’t believe what I believe

What I believe is what the church has always believed at least that is what the emergents tell me

I’m Orthodox to the bone but lack the spine to support it

    Great post. Self is alive and being worshiped. Try this some time: look up self-whatever it will be a sobering experience. In my Webster’s dictionary lists 546 self titles and three full pages after that.

    The Evangelical Creed is like the flavor of the week.

      You’re Dictionary must be more exhaustive than mine, Manny. But I was surprised at the number of self-whatever terms I found in the Webster’s that I have. Sadly, I think this “creed” or parts of it will be with us until Jesus returns only I think much of it will become more prevalent. It is definitely the flavor of the week.

      Thanks for your kind words my friend. I wish you and your family a blessed weekend.
