Anyone knowing me knows Phillip Yancey is one of my favorite writers. In his book WHAT’S SO AMAZING ABOUT GRACE (p. 33), he writes:
Mark Twain used to say he put a dog and a cat in a cage together as an experiment, to see if they could get along. They did, so he put in a bird, pig and goat. They, too, got along fine after a few adjustments. Then he put in a Baptist, Presbyterian, and Catholic; soon there was not a living thing left.
I wonder if Jesus looks at Christians today… and mourns. Here is what He prayed, “Father, I pray that they can be one. As you are in me and I am in you, I pray that they can also be one in us. Then the world will believe that you sent me” (John 17:21). NCV
