Is there any common sense for religious unity?

by Clifford Owusu-Gyamfi on Tuesday, 26 October 2010 at 00:37

There is too much relativity in religion today. The concept of one God is used as a catalyst to blind fold every doctrine. However comfortable we may be, deep beneath the hearts of each one of us, we know that somebody is wrong in his religious views or theology. Now the truth is simple to understand, will Christians break down all temples to join muslims in mosque for permanent service? Or can muslims do likewise? The answer is a big NO.

Doctrine sets us afar from each other.This disparity in doctrinal issues does not promote any common sense for religios unity. As though am making my case personal apology, I am losing much authority. But this is what my Bible tells me: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness” (2 Corinthians 6:14).

It may even be harder to think who an unbelievable is. It is written, “For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:  Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children” (Romans 9:6-7). Think of this carefully to define who an unbeliever is.

I adore world unity. This is the central theme of the gospel too. And we must all with deligence promote it, alongside with the gospel. But let no man temper to assume or promote syncretism. Let truth defines itself and conscience asumes independence.  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” Revelation 2: 7.
