a thought about the Church of God and nonsectarianism

Those final decades of the nineteenth century often witnessed bitter doctrinal debates and denominational competition so vigorous that often no one was thought to be a Christian unless belonging to the "right" denomination. (Barry Callen in Following the Light, pp. 22-23)

Maybe this was once "good news" for people. I now see it becoming divisive in its own way. You have to "come out" or you are not really a Christian; and you have to "come out" to the right nonsectarian group. I believe that the Church of God needed to reevaluate its strategy for this reason, and getting involved with ecumenism is appropriate at this time in history.
