I was helping to lead a Bible study at Jackson Prison in Jackson, MI with guys from the segregation unit. There were Christians and Muslims together. And, it seemed like everything they said had a real edge to it. One night one of the Muslim guys asked a Christian guy exactly what he believed.
My first thought was that his response would take awhile. The Christian inmate recited the Apostles Creed without blinking. That's what he believed. A light bulb went on in my head. I grew up saying that creed every Sunday in church.
I finally saw, up close and personal, why it is important to have it memorized and stuck in your heart. Can anybody relate?
