A credo that is the opposite of certainties

Dark night of the Soul

Hope is not hope until there
is nothing left to hope for,
and faith is not faith until
any belief in God is dead,
and love is not love until it
is tested by its own defeat.
Yet in these doubts the soul
and God may meet.

D G Moody 2022.

This is really good and very deep indeed. Only a lifetime of experience could produce it.

Dougie, I like Jim's appraisal of this poem because he uses the adjective 'succinct' and that is a really apt word to use in respect of it. You have skillfully enabled just a few lines and words to encompass so much. Allen

And for those without God doubt has no end beyond experience.

Brevity and succinctness here, Dougie, fine writing.
