Cheers to My Pastors for Preaching on the Creed

By Holly Campbell

The famous author Dorothy Sayers published a book in 1948, entitled “Creed or Chaos.” It is full of swashbuckling bravado. The kind of writing I just love to read. She was a great apologist. Our creeds are precisely formulated and clearly defined sets of Christian belief. “They are our only defense against chaos.” If that was true in 1948, how much more true is it today? “Doctrine” tends to get a bad press; people think it is dull. When, in fact, in the very doctrine is where we find the real drama.” She went on to say: “The Christian faith is the most exciting drama that ever staggered the imagination of man. The plot pivots upon a single character, and the whole action is the answer to a single central problem: What think you of Christ?”  Bless you my dear pastors, for giving us the real gusto!
