What is often behind divisions in the church due to “The Onlys”?
My answer to discussion question on “The Onlys”
If there are disagreements over an area or areas where authentic Christians can disagree, an arrogant attitude that demands “only” my view is acceptable in the church can lead to unnecessary divisions in the church. Instead of allowing Christians to freely come to their own conclusions on disputable matters, others are forced to come to “only” our conclusions. We are, then, demanding uniformity and not any diversity in Christ’s church. It is also disputable as to where we draw the line over what should cause divisions and what should only cause disagreements.
