Quote for the Week
"For Christians today are all in one degree or another in a position similar to that of Peter and the other Jewish Christians [in Galatians 2:11-16]. They say to fellow believers, in effect, 'We cannot sit at the same table as you; there are certain things we cannot do with you, because you do not recognise traditions and rituals which we hold as central to our own identity as Christians'. And in effect they make their traditions and distinctive beliefs as important as the gospel itself, as important as belief in Christ, as important as being in Christ. They deny Paul to his face: they affirm by their actions that a person is not justified by faith alone, but must also observe certain works of tradition. They take the side of Peter and, like Peter, they abuse and forsake the truth of the gospel. Do they really think that Paul would commend them for their unwillingness to sit at the same table as their fellow Christians, at the table of our Lord, at his table? I think not. I think rather that he would say with John Wesley: 'If your heart beats with mine in love for our common Lord, then give me your hand', and let us sit and eat together, let us stand and worship together, let us go forth together and together spread the good news of Jesus Christ."
