Is Christianity about getting it right?
Does one have to correctly know every doctrine of Scripture to be saved and stay saved?
I recently read some older material by a respected Bible professor in a Church of Christ affliated university asserting that this- equating Christianity with getting it right- is the very reason why we have historically produced churches and people bent on arguing and division.
Makes sense. If our approach is centered around our ability to correctly identify all that is right and someone comes to different conclusion on a Bible topic- they must be wrong. And if they are wrong, then they need correcting. Hence the fight is on.
Beyond the core fundamentals of faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, do we all have to believe alike to be Christians?
Is our faith primarily in Christ or in doctrine?
What part do we have to get right to be saved?
I sure have a lot of questions, don’t I? I would welcome your answers as I blog out loud today.
