    I love those who I fellowship with.

    No one particular group of believers has a corner on the Truth, but when Christ is preached, and loved by those who have trusted Him, then it doesn't really matter what church one belongs to.

    What if there was someone who believed...oh, I don't know...that Jesus was a mortal human being and a proto-socialist?

    So if one says you can only get to Heaven if you don't sin and another says if you just Believe then are both right, even if they conflict?

    Guy Coleridge describes, along with any other pilgrim who loses his way by beginning with a myopic/horizontal focus. Absolute truth

    existed before we were born, will be here after we die. Paul's priority one was to apprehend vertical/absolute truth. He got it right.
