Comments: Why do Christians disagree?

One line of a great Christian hymn offers this fact:
"Experience will decide"

It seem that Bishop David Atkinson's article on the bases of Christian disagreements in today's world actually point to this reality. 'Knowing' a person, 'en Christo', is to encounter a reality - that has the power to convert dogma into understanding.

Excellent article, but we should be clear about what's going on.

The po-mo rejection of "foundationalism" for a "network" conveniently shifts the goalposts and eliminates the problem of biblical inaccuracy. If the evidence deserts you, desert the evidence. Post modernism is repurposed to salvage a conservative belief system.

Our Lord foresaw that confusion nearly 2,000 years ago, and instituted the office of the confirmer of the brethren. Read about it in Luke ch 22 v 31-32.

Yes, Robert, but Peter really needed to be sorted out, didn't he? He didn't always make good decisions

"Our Lord foresaw that confusion nearly 2,000 years ago..." Highly unlikely, so I disagree.
