Divisions within the powerful river of Faith With President Jimmy Carter is a Ex President Jimmy Carter talk recorded at Baptist Assembly - 2005 on Practical Christian Life available as MP3 Download format.
Former American President Jimmy Carter looks at the book of Galatians, where Paul reminds us that the vast and diverse Christian world today needs to rise above divisive controversies. We must adhere to the basic, undistorted gospel message - the message that we are saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
Paul shows us that he not only deplores disharmony but he also understands one of the root causes of dissention among believers. They had become divided as some of their leaders took the clear and adequate message of the gospel of Christ and began to add their own, additional, requirements for acceptance in their fellowship which caused arguments and disagreements that threatened the survival of the early Church. President Carter suggests that this is an almost exact description of a plague that is threatening the unity and effective of the Christian community today around the world as elements of fundamentalism are used to exalt some believers and exclude others
