Why the Apostles Creed

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?
