Scripture: John 1:6-8; 20:30-31
“Can a modern person really subscribe to a creed? It seems rather narrow and probably a bit unsophisticated. Shouldn’t you have an open mind? Shouldn’t you be your own person? In the modern world, belief in a creed is considered a sign of intellectual failure. You can’t be bound to a creed, so it is said, and be a truly critical thinker.”

“We believe in marxfreudanddarwin
We believe that everything is ok
as long as you don’t hurt anyone
to the best of your definition of hurt,
and to the best of your knowledge.
We believe that everything’s getting better,
despite evidence to the contrary.
The evidence must be investigated.
You can prove anything with evidence.
We believe that all religions are basically the same.
They all believe in love and goodness.
They only differ on matters of
Creation, sin, heaven, hell, God, and salvation.
We believe that man is essentially good.
It’s only his behavior that gets him down.
This the fault of society.
Society is the fault of conditions.
Conditions are the fault of society.
We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him.
We there is no absolute truth,
except the truth that there is no absolute truth.
We believe in the rejection of creeds,
and the flowering of individual thought.”
