Ths Protestant spirit of schism is in the DNA of all Protestantism since the 16th century, not only towards the Roman Catholic Church but towards one another in the Protestant family of churches. There was hope at one time perhaps, when Calvin (the Reformed church leader) was willing to sign the Augsburg Confession (the Lutheran church confession of the 16th century). However, it has only accelerated, particularly with the rise of the free church movement in the USA and the internal upheavals within all the families of Protestantism. The Lord of the Church continues to pray John 17 and perhaps we may wake up and seek what the Lord prays for us all...a true and faithful unity around "Jesus is Lord"...particularly for us evangelicals I ask "Is it so hard to say evangelical and ecumenical in the same breath?" Just a thought...
