What a mess the Church is in! I don’t want to down any sect – not even the Roman Catholics. Indeed I have been in correspondence with an old colleague of my wife’s, who resigned his vicarship over the question of women priests, became a Catholic. We had plenty of areas of disagreement – but two things we were in agreement on – the saving grace of our God and the efficacy of the blood of our Lord Jesus.
There are problems everywhere, and the more I think of it, the more we have to be humble about. This side of the glory there will not be any group who is not affected by wrong judgments, worldliness, legality and the desire of people to promote themselves and their own ideas.
By faith we have to lay hold of the truth of the One Body. There is no breakdown in the bride of Christ.
