Christian Intolerance is Unifying
It is precisely because we are all one in Christ that you cannot have a World Congress of Faiths. Such an idea is a farce; indeed it is a denial of Christ. Christianity cannot participate in such a Congress. It cannot enter into any proposal or conference that says that Christianity is marvelous, but, after all, God gave insights to the Buddha, to Confucius, Mahomet and others and we can learn something from them. The Christian does not need to learn from such quarters, because "all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in Christ." He does not need them, is not interested in them, because he has it all in Himself. Even to give a glance at any other is a denial of Him. Intolerant, and yet unifying!
