I’ve been reading about the origins of our faiths creeds and I am finding it both fascinating and frightening.

What amazes me is that everything between the birth of Jesus and the death of Jesus could be wiped away from the gospel stories and it would not effect  creedal orthodoxy one little bit. Our creeds say nothing about how we ought to live or anything Jesus taught. And it’s a good thing too! If they did, how many of us could continue claiming to be orthodox?
