“John Stott famously lamented the pathological tendency of evangelicals to fragment. Others have remarked upon this as well, often as an argument for dismissing the veracity of any evangelical doctrine. How can the so-called evangelical position on this doctrine or that be accepted if there are other evangelicals who disagree with it? Evangelical theology is defeated by its own lack of consensus.
So how do we hold on to the truth, speak it with clarity, call upon others to hold it and stand firm against attempts to modify it, without starting World War 3 or its ecclesiastical equivalent?”
