Credo in unum Deum

The Apostle’s Creed

Every religion, or faith,

worships a god; or a chief god,

if there are lesser ones.

Different faiths have different gods,

described as unseen, untouched,

omnipotent and hungry for adoration.

All these different gods may be treated

as one and the same for all religions and all faiths.

Otherwise, with all the power attributed to them,

they would most certainly fight among each other,

if only to have more people to worship them.

This may mean that there is only one and the same god.

(the others are false or imaginary)

And this god does not mind what liturgy, or prayers,

or ceremony and practices the people use

as long as they pray to him.

Under this arrangement, there is discipline, and order,

and control of the peoples in this world.

One thing though, if on Judgement day,

and if this god decides

that the way some souls worship him

is not to his liking,

“Oh Shucks!”

would be the favorite (and last) expression

of these souls for that day.

 

What follows is the Apostle’s Creed,

or CREDO

of the universal Roman Catholic Church, 

and which is commonly called,

the “I believe…”

 

Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God,
the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
He descended into hell;
on the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from there He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.

Amen.

Every religion or faith,

valid, original, pagan, false, copied or for profit

should have its own credo,

otherwise the group is simply a crowd,
