When it comes to our faith, what is not up for debate?
What are the hills we are willing to die on? The lines we are willing to draw in the sand?
It seems we have a lot of those lines and hills. Thou shalt not cross this line, or thou shalt be thrown out of the gates, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. The more complex our society becomes, the more choices we have, the more divided we can be.
A few weeks ago, a blog friend asked on Facebook if Christian unity were possible, without compromising “non-negotiable” tenants of our faith. Those non-negotiables are important. So I’m wondering if, in our sea of dividing lines, our nearly infinite “non-negotiables,” could we do it?
