Doctrinal Disagreements and Theology

From Will Metzger's book, Tell the Truth:

None of us is so naive as to think all differences among Christians would be solved in our day if we returned to a theological basis for evangelism. Nevertheless, it is still imperative to challenge each other to look into the Scriptures again and again in order to make us more self-conscious of the doctrines that shape our methods. Even if we must agree to disagree on certain points, we will know clearly what they are; our fellowship will be more honest, and our children can take up studying where we have left off. We must never give up praying that new light will break upon the church as she seriously studies the Bible.
