How can different churches from different denominations get along? When I say get along, I mean love and respect the diversity in traditions as well as theological bents. I find it interesting that each denomination believes they are correct in their theological views and the emphasis they put on those views and that others are somehow missing the boat in some way. What are the odds that each of us just happened to show up at the right church. The vast majority of people in the pews (regardless of denomination) could never communicate the difference between them and another denomination, let alone defend their church’s position. Very few people theologically dissect a church and agree with all it’s perspectives before attending. Most people just attend and are then taught the position of the church. They “buy in” and then become that brand.

Obviously, everyone cannot be right on this one, but could everyone be wrong?
