This blog exists as a forum for discussion on issues related to Christian catholicity. The contributors here are both evangelical and catholic in perspective and ethos. While we come from diverse backgrounds and traditions, we all hold in common the orthodox doctrines of the historic Christian Church as set forth in the great Creeds of Christendom, namely, the Apostles’, Nicene, and Chalcedonian. The doctrines contained within these Creeds we hold as central to our orthodox Christian identity and as the foundation for ecumenical discussion and eventual Christian reunion.
The title of this blog echos the ecumenical passion of one of the great evangelical catholics in history, the nineteenth century German Reformed Church historian and theologian, Philip Schaff, who stated on numerous occasions with reference to his ecumenical hope: “In Christ all contradictions are reconciled.” It is with a similar conviction that we press on in our attempt for greater understanding of, and hope for reunion with, all those who profess faith in Jesus Christ as delineated by the historic Creeds of the Christian Church.
Discussion here is centered around a set of common themes: Biblical Exegesis, Theology, Philosophy, Church and Culture, Church History, Sacraments, and Liturgy
