As an aside I went to my nephew's christening the other day. Obviously not at a Baptist church
Anyway the congregation recited the Apostle's Creed which always gives me issues. Some of it I can easily say - "suffered under Pontius Pilate" for instance. Some of it clearly is talking about stuff I don't believe, eg "born of the Virgin Mary". Well, I'm happy to say Jesus was born of the person we know as the Virgin Mary, just not that she was a virgin when she gave birth. Or after the birth either, though I don't think this congregation or denomination was asking for that belief. But what on earth am I supposed to make of "seated at the right hand side of the Father"? What does it mean? Who determines what it means? The minister? The congregation? The author of the creed? Mark? Luke? St Thomas Aquinas
(God help us)? Me? I bet most people in that congregation mentally parsed it as "... is important and somehow close to God" If I believed that, could I say those words?
My various relatives who believe all or nothing or everything cheerfully recited the words without noticeable qualms, pausing only when we got the Lord's Prayer which was in modern English and did not have the 'trespasses' they learnt as children.
Maybe if we put the creeds to music and sung them like hymns I wouldn't have any problems. After all I manage to sing Jerusalem and To Be a Pilgrim.
I'm afraid that none of this is much help, Bonzo...
