personality and faith
Does faith have a personality? I believe it does. I believe we all worship differently and that God created us this way. I also believe this could be one of the problems facing the church now and in the past. Everyone needs something different and the structure of the church isn't flexible enough to accomodate all...and the old saying that you can please some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time. However, I can not speak about the institution of the church because I really don't know her. My gut feeling has been that it is sad when a church splits herself, but I might need to revisit that thought because perhaps it is a very positive thing. Perhaps it is not so much about differences of opinion but just differences in personality. God created us to have different personalities so it must please Him that we worship differently.
