The New Evangelical Christian Creed

November 9, 2012

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

    Hi Manny. Pastor Silva would be happy to see this in as many places as possible, I’m sure.
    I know what the word “evangelical” is supposed to mean. But the word has been used by so many false teachers that, for me, it’s now mumbo-jumbo. How can a “Christian” believe any of this “creed?” That so many believe in parts of this “creed” is just another sign of the times.

    God’s blessings my brother…

      It is very sad. It shows a very shallow relationship if even that. The culture we live in has swallowed a hook that gray is the way to go. Black and white are just not acceptable as colors in their coloring book. No values, or absolutes just questions with tolerance as the touch stone.

      Our nation as we used to know it has morphed into a very sick, self-centered nation with an attitude like ancient Rome where anything goes.
