The Most Divisive Topics Separating Christians
« on: July 24, 2018, 12:17:51 PM »
  • Church Hierarchy
  • Baptism
  • The Trinity
  • Spiritual Gifts

Can you think of any other issues that prevent Christian denominations from unifying?  Can a common ground be found or is the best strategy to agree to disagree for the sake of some cooperation?

I would say it would necessarily have to be hierarchy/authority.  All the other differences in understanding the other issues are predicated on that.  If two people have a disagreement over an issue such as spiritual gifts, for example, as long as one person agrees that the other person has authority in understanding, then the issue can be resolved.  If each person thinks his understanding is the true one and has the authority to decide that, then division results.

I would definitely have to agree with you.  Hierarchy is definetly the easiest way to resolve most issues.
