"If that is not true, what does it matter whether God is almighty or Jesus Christ was born and died and rose again? It is because these things have a bearing upon my forgiveness that they are important to me." - Martin Luther
I am continuing my teaching on the Apostles' Creed tonight in our youth group. It is interesting how often we as believers take this phrase for granted and then wonder why we have problems with trying to "earn" our forgiveness. It has caused me to stop and really look at myself and wonder if if truly believe this in the deepest part of my spirit or if I have fallen into the "works" trap. . .
