Which is more important? Maintaining the Christian unity that Jesus prayed for before his death or splitting over arguments from silence? Some have opted for the second and I don’t know how acceptable I find that.
Sometimes I find it really difficult to get my mind around Christian unity. So many splits. So many disagreements. So many things have been put ahead of preserving our relationships with each other as the body of Christ. In the next post I am going to unpack Philippians 2 and examine Paul’s empahsis on Christian unity and the ultimate model of the attitude that can accomplish it – Christ’s.
