God is SO GOOD; although I have ADD.

One in Christ, Elusive

ONE IN CHRIST -- 
DESIRABLE BUT ELUSIVE

Paul certainly spoke of the desirability of One In Christ -- and so did the Gospel John. One In Christ is generally elusive, because of the human tendency to focus on the differences between denominations, along with other differences. Also we tend to hyperfocus on "Make sure that it is the right belief." But we are brothers and sisters in Christ, so let's focus on our similarities. The sacrament of Communion should unite all believers, but division over Communion has existed for centuries. The mode of baptism isn't so important, and I was raised Baptist. The most glaring division is over whether the Bible is to be interpreted literally. Many devout Christians see priceless wisdom and beauty behind the literal word or the not-so-literal word. Toward end of document, I get into that such issues as homosexuality are divisive -- and division is an abomination too.

Because of the size of this item, it is available for downloading. Then you can print it, which is handier than computer screen. It is available in PDF format and also in MS Word. Although the MS Word file is a PC file with ".DOC" suffix, I have found that it works on my Mac. Older Mac's might have a problem with the file.

In order to read the PDF format, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader; however that is available for free from the Adobe web site, in both PC and Mac formats. That is a handy application to have on your computer, for other PDF documents that you come across. To download Adobe Acrobat Reader, click http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

To save a PDF on an older Mac, hold down "option" key when you click the PDF hyperlink. 
MS Word file, just click the hyperlink.
