There was a time when Albert Mohler thought he would be a politician. As a young man, he says, “I wanted to change the world. And I thought at one point that law and politics would be the way to do it.” Although Mohler went into ministry instead of politics, he never lost his passion to see society transformed. Indeed, during his 25 years as president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, he has become a leading voice for Christian engagement in the political sphere.

I struggle with Attention Deficit Disorder, and I regularly get so distracted that I lose my stuff. For instance, I was recently lining up to board a flight when I noticed I no longer had my carry-on. It had the souvenirs I had purchased for my children, my laptop, and my personal journal. If I went to look for the bag, I’d likely miss my flight. While debating what to do, I thought of the time I left my passport in a taxi in Greece; and the time I left my wallet in a bagel shop in Queens; and the time in Houston when I drove away from Target with my groceries still in the shopping cart.

For a long time, Paul had wanted to visit Rome (Acts 19:21; Rom 1:10–12; 15:22–24, 32). In Acts 28, he has ended up there by means other than those he had originally planned. Now that he is there, however, he continues his mission. Part of that mission is to appear before Caesar’s court (Acts 27:24), but, as always, Paul continues to take every other opportunity to share Christ with everyone he can.

The church is founded on ancient biblical teachings and practices like the Ten Commandments, baptism, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Supper, the Lord’s Prayer, and corporate worship. These basics of the Christian life have sustained and nurtured every generation of the faithful, from the apostles to today. For centuries, new believers have been introduced to the church’s teachings through the Apostles’ Creed, and veteran Christians regularly recite this statement of faith to affirm their beliefs. In The Apostles’ Creed: A Guide to the Ancient Catechism, Ben Myers concisely explains the creed with the help and insights of the early church. We asked Ben to tell us what he’s learned about the creed and its implications for Bible study.
