In regards to CurtisG's first post, where he mentions what Joseph Smith said about creeds (as quoted from the Joseph Smith History)...
Not that the Lord would mince His words, (as the quote is specific that it's in regards to all creeds)...
But keep in mind that the Lord knows what we're thinking, and His comment may have been specific to whatever creed Joseph was asking (or thinking) about, when he prayed for guidance.
Just my 2 cents worth on a very old thread.
Having been raised as a Lutheran... never understood the point of "mindlessly" (my word) reciting something that was not the Word of God, but was written by men.
