Trevor, I very much enjoyed your message. I would describe myself as an 'a 
la carte' Christian. For nine years I was the system operator of a 
Christian BBS. There were a lot of doctrinal discussions and it was always 
interesting to see the combination of doctrines a user would have. Yet many 
seemed to think they were doctrinally pure. And, too often the differences 
of doctrine were greater than the love of Christian brother. I soon 
disliked creeds. Now, the only Creed I will ascribe to is the Bible, which 
I do not claim to completely understand. If I need to ascribe to a creed to 
be allowed, then I accept that I am not allowed.
