James MacDonald on doctrine vs. relationship

The nuance of relationship is sadly lost in the world of those who believe doctrinal accuracy (which they have no corner on) is the pinnacle Christian priority.

But if 1 Corinthians 13 is teaching anything, it’s that even doctrine that removes all mystery (a facetious impossibility)—apart from love—is worthless. I make no apology for prioritizing relationship in these conversations.

I commend James MacDonald for his attempt to open up dialog between pastors who do not agree on everything, and I am saddened that many have condemned these efforts.
