As we bring Red White and Geek month to an end, Dallas takes a look at the speech given by President Whitmore in the 1996 Sci-Fi film Independence Day. In that speech, the president makes it clear; that on that day, there were no more divisions; there would be freedom and liberty for all. How does this apply to the body of Christ?
We are living in a time frame where the church is highly divided. We’ve allowed petty non-salvation essential doctrinal beliefs to divide us. We’ve allowed those differences to drive a wedge so large that the world looks at the church and ask “Why should we follow the Christ that they preach?” They ask because our bickering and self-righteous behavior tells them that our savior is not as full of grace as we claim.
