O-tay, back to this.

Because everything else shifts (creeds, doctrines, people, etc.), but the church in Jerusalem is just that - simple. But then when that becomes just another doctrine (as has been discussed on here ad nauseum squared), it certainly can be just another divisive thing. Been there. Done that. Wore out and outgrew that t-shirt.

But it was still a really nice t-shirt for a time . . . but even really nice t-shirts fail (1 Cor 3:8). So I gave it up to seek the perfect thing.
