God’s intent is that we be one in essence. We must one is essence, purpose, and plan; one unity; one purpose. There are many voices pulling us away from one another. It’s God’s plan that we’ll be together. Can we come together for something greater than ourselves?
God has a plan for unity:
1 Pet. 2:17. This is inerrantists disagreeing with other inerrantists. We respect each other’s right to hold opinions. I don’t see that happening. We’re talking about and at each other too often.
Heb. 12:14-15. We make every effort to castigate, but Scripture says the opposite.
Eph. 4:15. We must relearn this. It’s time for honesty. Tell the search committee what you believe.
5. Scriptural adherence. Hold to the Word. We need to quote the Author before we start quoting other authors. We must quote Scripture first.
6. Great Commission. We must go into all the world teaching, baptizing, and teaching. The issue before us is the souls of men, women, boys, and girls. The bottom line issue is men and women who need the gospel.
If we do these things, Calvinists and non-Calvinists can work together.
