Honestly, I think it is way too easy to get in a Christian Circle and stay inside of that little comfort bubble. Not that hanging out with Christian people is bad, by any means, but we can put ourselves in this isolationist position (happens in every Church/Fellowship) and think that things will just be great if we minimize interaction with people who aren't following Jesus.

I personally see "Unity" as more important in the Christian world. We as a church are so divided (over 30,000 different denominations, with often opposing views, worldwide). I know you will talk more about this next time... However we need to be careful when we talk about unity with non-believers. I think you spoke truth when you said that we need to remember that all people were created in the image and likeness of God, and are all God's children whether they know Him or not. Unity does not mean: accept everyone's beliefs as true (or even good) regarding God, Spirituality and Religion. In light of Whole Earth Festival here in Davis, we should make this distinction clear in the rest of the comments.

Jesus says "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through me" -John 14:6

Unity is not seeing eye-to-eye with everyone, (That's impossible) but lovingly and respectfully disagreeing and sharing the Truth.

Keith, i'm so glad you chimed in. You always have good stuff to say, so i'm glad you dove in and shared some insights. I fully agree that we can't bend one inch on biblical truth. I hope that was clear in my post. I fear that we err on one side or the other too much. On that note, to keep the conversation rolling still, which side do you think is better to fall on, and what are the ramifications of either error?
