The question: What is the unity that Jesus prayed for in John 17 and is it primarily (or even solely) eschatological in nature? (In other words, is it a future promise of unity in eternity?)
I hope you take the time to visit Steve’s blog and join the discussion.
I think conversations about unity are very important. Steve’s question about the reality of unity and the time context of unity are very important. I’d also add that we need to consider the source and foundation of unity.
So, continuing the discussion of unity, I ask you the following questions: What are some historical sources of unity (not necessarily Christian unity)? Are these good or poor sources of unity? What is the source (sources) of Christian unity? How is this source (sources) the same as or different than other sources of unity?
