I’ve been really burdened for a while now about the separation among believers. Why can’t we all work together? I understand that there has to be a degree of separation from certain groups who preach a different Jesus or have some other fundamental error; but what about those whose error is second hand compared to the work of Christ and the character of God?
Just because Presbyterians believe in baby baptism doesn’t mean that Baptists can’t associate with them. Where’s that in the Bible? So many people have fallen into the trap of believing that they’ve arrived at what a Biblical lifestyle looks like, and therefore they’re not open to the possibility that someone else might have a clearer view than them.
Have you ever heard the saying, “He who defines the terms, wins the argument.” That’s what needs to happen among the different Christian groups. There has to be a setting where leaders from all different circles can come together and hash out their differences. If some of the terms can be defined, I think we’ll find that we’re not so very different from each other.
Personally, I would love to talk with some Methodists, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, Baptists, and whoever else has this same burden. Shoot me an email or a comment, I have some ideas that I need help with.
