The Apostles’ Creed was not a piece of my Christian upbringing. I was raised in a non-liturgical church, but I have since gone back and tried to see if I have missed out on anything.
In my estimation, I have, slightly, because I don’t have a firmly ingrained mental connection to the ancient church. I don’t have something like the Apostles’ Creed in my head at all times, and I think that I am at a disadvantage because of that fact. Of course, there are some who do have this short theological recitation memorized but with no benefit because they have learned the word but not the meaning behind them.
