Why we need to stop dividing the Church.
A wonderful article.
Schism (which is how many denominations came about) never fixes anything. Disunity is a sin, a very real sin that Christians need to ponder. This is one of the reasons I am wary of the continuing Anglican movement and have never seriously looked into it. Though TEC has many problems, I don’t think abandonment is the solution.
I like this quote “Jesus didn’t give us many churches. He gave us one Church.”
So if schism is bad, and Jesus gave us one Church…shouldn’t we try and figure out where that One Church went?
I think they found it in Russia, Greece, Ukraine, Serbia, Georgia, Romania, and some other countries or something. Something about an Orthodox Church. Idk.
Funny, you know I heard the same thing about a Church centered in Rome with rites all around the world…something about a Catholic Church? ;)
