Christianity is a "way" to be followed more than it is about a set of "correct" beliefs. Practice is more important than correct beliefs; not to say that beliefs are not important, but they are not the object of faith. God is the object of commitment, and for Christians, God is known as Jesus.

Amen

Marcus J. Borg

Consider this remarkable fact: In the sermon on the mount, there is not a single word about what to believe. Only words about what to do and how to be. By the time the Nicene Creed is written, only three centuries later, there is not a single word in it about what to do and how to be—only words about what to believe.

Amen
