Credo is a statement of religious belief, such as the Apostles’ Creed. And while I do not hesitate in proclaiming Jesus as my Lord and Savior, the personal credo I adopted about a decade ago outwardly is less religious. It’s faith-based, but it is a mantra that can be claimed by the believer and non-believer alike.
Some background: I am a redneck idiot that has learned every lesson the hard way. I’ve lied, cheated, stolen, fallen, philandered, and failed. I’ve been filled with envy, pride, greed, jealousy, lust, gluttony, and fear. I’ve been arrogant, conceded, opinionated, closed-minded, boisterous and brash. In short – I’m a sinner.
