This is so interesting. Matt and I were doing a Bible Study tonight in 1 Corinthians 1, where it says in verse 10, "...agree with each other and not be split into groups. I beg that you be completely jointed together by having the smae kind of thinking and the same purpose." I think that we should all be seeking to save the lost and to show them who Jesus Christ is and what He did for them, regardless of what each other feel is right. That one purpose that is being mentioned in Corinthians is to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ, and we should all be set to have that same purpose regardless of what denomination we are. It's like what Pastor Jon said on Easter, "It is about relationships not religion."

Uniting in worship - sounds almost as radical as that "Christ is for Jews and Gentiles" message in the New Testament! When we were in San Antonio several years ago two of the largest churches in the area had a yearly "pastor swap" where each pastor preached at the other church one Sunday. One was Church of Christ and one was Southern Baptist. We had attended both churches during our 3 month visit to the area, and both were teachers committed to the truth of the Bible. Amazingly, the other local churches were very publicly against this "cross denomination" preaching and made it an issue in the paper for several weeks. How sad that we are so divided. How many could we reach if we united in the message of salvation through Jesus Christ and quit "majoring" on minor issues.
