Denying creation = denying the faith

The Apostles’ Creed is, in my opinion, a lowest common denominator confession of the Christian faith. Subscribing to it doesn’t necessarily mean one is a Christian, but denying any point certainly puts one outside of the faith.
The Apostles’ Creed states that God is creator of heaven and earth.
Deny what the Bible teaches about creation and you have placed yourself outside the faith.
What I find really strange these days is that a professing Christian will get more grief for stating the obvious (which I did above) than for denying the Apostles’ Creed. To be sure, such denials are usually cloaked in scientific jargon which does nothing to change the fact that they still express unbelief.
O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge” – which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith. (1 Timothy 6:20-21 NASB)
