Jimmy Carter: Disharmony is 'like a cancer' among Christians
Former president Jimmy Carter says the shared faith in Jesus Christ should be enough of a reason for Christians to unite.

Speaking at a regional gathering of the New Baptist Covenant on Sunday, Carter said disharmony among Christians was like "a cancer metastasizing in the body of Christ" and that other divisive issues needed to be put aside if they stand in the way of unity.

The covenant was launched out of concern that the prevailing image of Christians, particularly Baptists, today is one of divisiveness. Baptists in the US have debated and, in some cases, split over such issues as the role of women in ministry and marriage, abortion, civil rights for gays, and Scripture. ...

This quotation is said to be by Martin Luther. I don't know, but whoever said it, it applies to Mr. Carter's comments:
"Cursed be any love or unity for whose sake,
The Word of God must be put at stake."

Jimmy Carter, who does not believe that an individual needs to be a Christian to go to heaven is not a Christian. He does not come with the doctrine of Christ (2 Jn 9-10)and therefore I would that any true Christian that is fellowshipping with him, to cut that fellowship off and have nothing more to do with him. the exhortation of the apostle Paul in Romans 16 regarding apparent apostates such as Jimmy Carter is that we are to "mark them" and "avoid them". Nothing else. It is such as these that bring division into the body of Christ.

Good post Frank

But as an offensive, non-sissy, now playing the role of a preacher, I must exhort you not to use a euphemism instead of the word God.

The same applies to a particularly American euphemism for Jesus, namely G-e. There are many others, so please don't get caught out.

Contention and division are never pleasant, but are sometimes necessary in order to pursue true holiness. Carter and his people seem to me all too eager to avoid even neccessary conflict just so they can preserve some general sense of "unity". Churches that exalt the concept of "unity" invariably become luke-warm over time.

It makes me want to vomit when I read things like this because more often than not it is the true, Bible-believing Christian that ends up looking like the bad guy. We all have differences of opinion. Certain scripture can be interpreted in different ways, but the BIG ISSUES can't be put aside in the name of harmony. The Bible states plainly in black and white and sometimes red that homosexuality is a sin and wrong, that abortion is a sin, the sin of murder, and not a choice, and most importantly, that Jesus Christ is the only means that we human beings have of approaching and reconciling with God; this means Christians must view every other religion and secular world view as a lie from Satan himself.

The problem is that people love to listen to authority figures, and even though he is the true worst President the USA ever had,confusion, fear,low self-esteem,and sometimes even heart-felt sympathy leads individuals to truly look for any excuse to accept everyone under their "big tent". There are some issues that are too big to comprimise with;the largest group of like-minded, comprimising individuals are on that broad road leading to Hell.

good ol boy Jimmy the nut is a full blown proponent of the NWO-so it's no surprise that he wants Christians to unite with the nominals

it's their agenda for a one world religion

It is not right to compromise with others especially if others are obeying a teaching contrary to the Scriptures. I have found out this past weekend how vivid this is when I heard an evangelist at a church I visited say "the voice of the Holy Spirit" told him to hit somebody to heal them and the evangelist obeyed the voice. I can't unite with people who tolerate that! It is contrary to what God has said in the Bible about healing and miracles and to unite with them or support them is wrong. They must be disfellowshipped in the hope that they will repent.

"Carter said disharmony among Christians was like "a cancer metastasizing in the body of Christ" and that other divisive issues needed to be put aside if they stand in the way of unity."

I thought Carter had gone back to his peanuts!!!

I advise Carter to return to his peanuts. When there, read ecclesiastical history and look for Liberal solutions to sin in mankind, among your peanuts.
Jimmy and Tony Blair make a good pair don't they?
