consider the world. consider the pain in the world, its darkness. Consider the passion in the world, consider its light. What is a heaven for, by which I mean, what is religion for in modernity?

Reverence, a kind of humility, corrects belief's tendency to warp or harden.

credo—"i believe"—is the first word in creeds intended to establish a uniformity and commonality of belief. I am not aware that any religion other than Christianity has created creedal statements to establish standards of orthodoxy, though the idea of orthodoxy itself is very widespread. The creeds seem to me to be, all in all, an elegant solution to the problems of volatility and syncretism all religions deal with. They do not proscribe other beliefs or enforce behaviors as evidence of orthodoxy, but instead implicitly define orthodoxy as the affirming of essential elements of sacred narrative, briefly interpreted. "I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth."
