The myth of non-doctrinal Christianity

A very penetrating thinker has observed:

"When you hear anyone say 'Away with creeds,' you know that what he really means is 'take mine.'"

Everyone has a creed. There is not a single exception. And we live according to what we really believe. How foolish then the prejudice against doctrine. Much of it is based upon ignorance.

Edward Roberts, quoted in Ligon Duncan (ed.), The Westminster Confession into the 21st Century vol. 1, p. 24
