How do you view Ecumenism?
Do you view anyone outside your denomination as a heretic and worthy of contempt?
Do you view anyone outside of your denomination as a heretic who should be treated with respect, but they will have to return / convert to your denomination to be saved?
Do you view other Christians as joined to your Church by Baptism in a certain, although imperfect communion.
Do you view denomination as unimportant as long as you are Christian?
Do you feel the divisions, fractions, denominations, schisms (call them what you will) in the Body of Christ as unfortunate, or you don’t care as you have nothing to do with other denominations, or do you feel the pain of Christian seperation acutely and personally?
I’ve seen all of the above on these boards.
Or something between the above or something else?
I toyed with putting together some sort of poll but I’ve been suspicious of them ever since a friend of mine on an actuarial course revealed he had a course book ‘How to lie with Statistics.’ + I don’t like pidgeonholing!
Anyone who has read any of my posts will be able to work out where I stand;)
Any thoughts? :hmmm:
