Uniformity of faith does not equal uniformity of thought.
Certainly true in my vein of Christianity. We have a reputation for conservatism but I know people from every end of the political spectrum in my church. Doctrinally we can get into some lively discussions, but when it comes to Christ and his saving power, we’re all one.
So say we all. 😉
Sometimes this is a good thing, due to personal differences, and sometimes it is a bad thing, due to lack of real truth-seeking thought. I know, even Paul and Peter had their temporary falling out, but eventually truth healed their division, but in the mean time, neither one taught a theology contradicting the other’s.
I firmly believe that the majority of all disagreements are due to stubbornly clinging to one’s biased ego-based opinions instead of seeking to understand truth at all cost, in every area, including the mundane and person to person interactions.
It is hard to argue with your logic, Todd. If we started and ended by seeking the Lord with all our hearts, we would all be so close to Him that we’d have to search Him to find each other.
