Both the church and the state are being divided by issues that impact small numbers of people.
Oklahoma City (PRWEB) June 07, 2014
Retired minister and former government employee, Marilyn Knott believes that Christian’s varied stances on modern social issues have weakened the faith.
Her new book, “Houses Divided” challenges Christian churches to put aside their differences and begin conversations that will bring them together as one in Christ. The book addresses hot button issues such as gun control, homosexuality, mental health, abortion and immigration.
“Both the church and the state are being divided by issues that impact small numbers of people,” Knott said. “This makes it easy to scapegoat certain populations or actions without most of us having to grapple with any changes in our personal lives.”
“Houses Divided” stresses that the Christian church has always been called to oneness in Christ and oneness with all the people God created.
