Rather than sidetrack another thread, I am repeating a question here. There are certain "issues" (or conflicts that became the focal point of 99% of the writing and debate of an age). Not that other doctrines are unimportant, just not the FOCUS of debate. AD 100-300 it focused on the Canon AD 300-600 focus on Deity of Christ AD 600-1200 focus on person piety (monasticism) AD 1200-1600 focus on Grace v works AD 1600-1800 focus on Denominational distinctions AD 1800-1900 focus on expanding the Kingdom (missions) AD 1900-2000 focus on fundamentals of the faith AD 2000-2100 focus on ___________ What would it be in our era? Open for suggestions!
