The Danger of Blind Conformance in the Church - January 30, 2011

Charles Price this morning provided some good insight into the danger of blind conformity in the church.  For example, uniformity to man-established tradition makes it easier for all those inside a church to get along (you know, it's easier to switch and be like the rest of them than fight); but it has a great danger of alienating outsiders -- the very ones both the Church, capital 'C" and the small-c church should be reaching out to.

Price suggests:
In essential beliefs -- unity.
In non-essentials -- freedom.
In both -- love.

Consider this in light of Ephesians 4:1-6 -- Unity in the Community; and 4:7-13, Diversity of the Community.
