I’ve been reading The Call, by Os Guinness. The title of this post is a quote from his writing on corporate calling. He included some great quotes, two of which I’d like to share.
“I would be, as I hope I am, a Christian. But for those factious titles of Anabaptist, Independent, Presbyterian, and the like, I conclude that they come neither from Jerusalem nor from Antioch, but from Hell or Babylon.”
- John Bunyan
“Though I am an Episcopalian by birth, I yet feel such a oneness and sympathy with the cause of God at large, that nothing would be more delightful than communing once a year with every church that holds the Head, even Christ.”
- William Wilberforce
Lots of challenging statements in those quotes. I’ve been left with the question, “What does it look like to be committed to the holy, catholic, and apostolic church?”
