Read for yourselves

A retired Christian minister whose columns are regularly printed in this paper puzzles over and decries the “divisions within the American Church.” He maintains that, “Division only creates destructive power.” (Nov. 25)

Perhaps he, and others whose primary “theology” seems to be that about anything goes just so long as it is wrapped up in the veil of “love,” should take note of something Jesus said as recorded in Matthew’s Gospel Chapter 10:34-36; “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” Read it for yourselves.

Speaking of love, 2 Thessalonians 2:10 in the New Testament tells us why a lot of people will, in the “end,” be lost. It is because, “they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

Certainly. Jesus and the Bible tell us a lot about Christian unity. It is true unity based upon biblical truth, not closing ones eyes and ears to it.

Think about it. If truth isn’t important, what’s to argue about?
