Scripture says that God hears the prayers of a righteous man. And who is more righteous than Jesus? Apparently, though, when Jesus prayed in his great Priestly prayer in John 17 for unity amongst his followers, it didn’t prevent the occurrence of differences of opinion amongst the faithful. Major differences, some of which have led to schisms and apostasy throughout the centuries of the Church. How should we handle differences of opinion, especially over important doctrinal issues, and especially when it seems that the present position of the Church is different from what we’ve always believed?
Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue to prepare for their study of Ephesians by looking first at the Early Church in the Acts of the Apostles.
