Part One: Why grace over world views matter

The things we think and do while we live on earth reflect our belief systems and world views. If we engage in worldly disputes within the Church, how can we be united as Jesus’ followers reaching out to a lost world? What are the points of view that divide believers? Some are political, some cultural, some preferential, and others simply personal. Paul discussed what people eat and what days people hold sacred as places for grace. What we wear to church, what kind of music we sing, which translation of the Bible we use, movies we watch, the education choices we make for our children, and even things like vaccines, masks, alcohol, or tattoos — these are not essential. While we may not agree on everything, we must not allow differences of opinion to divide us.
