I am a republican, democrat, liberal, conservative, anarchist, and/or radical. I maintain separation with my political party of choice, Jesus notwithstanding!
Thus, herein lies the problem of personal relationships. There will be NO solution to the separations.
On the other hand, if I allow the blood of Jesus to “do its work,” then I am none of the above, but a Christian only. In fact, it is only in Jesus that the separations of man can be bridged, because the separations are washed away in the blood of Christ and a new way of thinking is adopted. (Gal. 2:20)
