Does anyone have a "statement of faith" that they either feel partial too, or have written themselves? (For whatever religion or faith you subscribe to.) I'm curious! I wonder if we can share in a non-critical, non-challenging way? I'd love to hear.

I wrote one recently, and it is subject to change, but for now I am pretty happy with it:

"I believe in a Divine Creator and Designer. I believe that God is good and loving. I believe that God knows me on a personal level, better than I know myself. I believe that I was designed perfectly, but behave imperfectly. Because I have the gift of choice, I, like all humans have the ability (and the tendency) to make poor choices. I believe that my good and perfect heavenly Parent has made a way to redeem me in spite of my choices, and draw me toward heaven as a beloved child. And I believe that God has accomplished that through the work of Jesus. And I have come to love God through what I know of the man called Jesus."

Mamaduck,

Thank you for sharing your own 'statement of faith'. What you wrote really resonates with me.

I've stayed out of the controversial threads, because I just don't have the time or energy to put into arguing. But I am a Christian because of Jesus (and not the Bible)...he calls to me and tells me of his love and care for me, and I can't help but respond. Your statement of faith expresses that for me.
