I love it when my posts (or other posts for that matter) inspire other people to blog about the same topic.
At least two bloggers have picked up on that topic and continued the conversation.
It is not only possible, it is absolutely necessary that we fellowship with people we disagree with on some issues. The only person I agree with 100% of the time is myself and sometimes I make pretty poor company even to me! The church is united by so many things, first and foremost the blood bought adoption by God. If God has chosen us and caused us to be born again and become part of His family, we need to be united with one another regardless of our differences. To do anything else is to tell God that perhaps He made a mistake in bringing those people into His family.
It’s a fact that people are going to disagree on doctrines and theology. Does this mean that there has to be disunity? While we can remain convinced in our own individual consciences of what we believe, can we not also live “in harmony with one another and in harmony with Jesus Christ”?
Have I missed any posts on this important topic?
