Why ecumenism fails

The key sentence (in today’s study), I feel, is: ‘The first unity to get straight, then, is our unity with God. For if there is disunity here then disharmony spreads itself all down the line.’

Paul, writing in 1 Corinthians 12:24-25, states; ” … But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. if one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.”

Perhaps, there is division in today’s Church because we don’t have equal concern for each other; especially when dealing with others in different denominations – do you agree?
