To me one of the major tragedies of the hour, and especially in the realm of the Church, is that most of the time seems to be taken up by the leaders in preaching about unity instead of preaching the gospel that alone can produce unity. The time is spent in talking and in conferences, endlessly -- conferences in which they "explore their difficulties". You will never get unity that way. It is the gospel alone that will produce unity. And while there is disagreement about the gospel it is a waste of breath and of energy to be talking about any other possible way to unity.
