Society for Pentecostal Studies Paper: Conclusion

The future of Christianity lies not in increased division, but, as Moltmann wrote, in the “fellowship of mutual participation and unifying sympathy.”

Or, as an even wiser theologian once said, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”

I conclude with a prayer uttered by this same One, “I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one.”

    Yippee!! Ending with John 17! If only we would listen to the prayer Jesus has been praying for us throughout these last millennia — that our relationship with Jesus would be the same as his relationship with his Father. Preach it Tony!

    My favorite part: “as an even wider theologian once said…”

    Calling Jesus fat is a bold move, my friend. :)

    Good ending Tony. A house divided cannot stand, how true. May our words and our actions be those that will include hospitality towards ALL, not just Christians. My relationship and journey with God has bee going on since the age of 4 or 5 and that is a lot of years. I continue to be open to what God can teach me directly and through others, again not just Christians. As I believe that there is a spark of God in each of us and that we are all God’s children, I look for that spark in everyone. It really helps to do that when it is an enemy or someone who is afraid of our love and will not trust, etc. Tony, thanks for the series. I have enjoyed being challenged with thought provoking ideas. May Easter come soon into your life’s circumstances.
