Basics of the Christian Faith

As I was looking at what I'd written over the past few years, it struck me that there were several sermons that seemed to group themselves into what might be called the basics of our faith. These are written given my increasing concern that many people who go to church week by week really do not have a basic understanding of the doctrines of the Christian faith. How many sermons have they listened to? How many times have they repeated the words of the Lord's Prayer and Creeds and not stopped to think about what those words really mean?

If you are in that category, perhaps unsure of your faith, in the dark about certain aspects of Christianity, then I hope that some of these might help bring some illumination.
