12 December 2010. A Point of Unity…

Filed under: Christian,cultural,inter-Christian relations,religious — 01varvara @ 00.00

Yes… there’s much that separates the Church from the other Christian confesssions… but there’s also much that separates Christians in general from Sectarians such as JWs, Mormons, Pentecostalists, SDAs, and “Evangelicals” (I don’t mean real Evangelicals… that is, Lutherans). Indeed, there’s much that Legit Christians do share despite their very real divisions… it’s so obvious that even a child can see it! Whether you call it “liturgy” or you call it “mass”… the Eucharistic service is not “three–songs-and-a-sermon”. Bowing before Our Lord’s Presence is NOT the same as Pentecostalists rolling about in the aisles… it’s REAL, whereas the other is a disgusting imposture of the worst order.

Here’s one of the things that Legit Christians all share in common… the very place of Our Lord’s resurrection in the Holy City of Jerusalem, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Yes… the holy does subsist in things as much as it resides in people. Richard, shall you take my hand? It’s one of the things that ties us together, does it not?

My good wishes to all of you in this hectic (but, fun) holiday season. Don’t forget, a shot of brandy in your evening coffee does wonders for it and for you…
