He is writing about the culture of churches and Christians (especially in the Western world) who readily accept and perhaps even condone dividing from one another.
In the post, Arthur gives us several steps toward changing this culture. I think his suggestions are very good, and I will list them briefly here. (Make sure to read Arthur’s entire post for his explanations.)
- Change our understanding of the church.
- Actively seek opportunities to meet … people where they are.
- Be willing to place unity at the same level as other doctrines.
- Stop the name calling.
- Stop being afraid of other Christians and other churches.
What do you think of Arthur’s “steps”? Would you add, remove, change any of them?
