What are the 12 beliefs in the Apostles Creed?

Image result for the creed and its meanings for catholics

Today at Mass, when we got at article 7 of the recitation of the apostle Creed , I struck me the advent we celebrate is both of the first come and the second coming of Jesus.

I told a group of Catholic youth that Jesus came the first time as the Saviour and Merciful one, his second coming will not be the same. He is coming as a Judge. He will judge the living and the dead with Fire.

I ask myself, Will merciful abound then? No. i don’t think So.

In the apostles creed, each articles has its deeper meaning and reflection. This is the season of Christmas, May his coming be for us Favour and Hope of eternal life for his people.

  1. I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
  2. And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord
  3. Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary
  4. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried
  5. He descended into hell.The third day he arose again from the dead
  6. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand ofGod the Father Almighty
  7. He will come again to judge the living and the dead
  8. I believe in the Holy Spirit
  9. the holy catholic Church, the Communion of Saints
  10. the forgiveness of sins
  11. the resurrection of the body
  12. And in life everlasting.

Article 7: He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 

This article affirms the Second Coming of Christ at the end of the world to be its judge. Judgment Day, Day of Reckoning, Doomsday—they’re all metaphors for the end of time when what’s known as the General Judgment will occur. Catholics believe that after the death of any human person, immediate private judgment occurs and the person goes directly to heaven, hell, or purgatory (an intermediate place in preparation for heaven)
