In recent months I have heard a lot of ecumenical-type folks talk about the only prayer Jesus ever prayed that has not been answered. They are referring to Jesus' prayer that "all my children be one." These folk then go into a whiny argument as to why all denominations need to become one. Did Jesus have that in mind when He prayed this prayer? Denominations did not exist at that time, but maybe He was seeing into the future when there would be denominations, and He expressed His desire for all "denominational walls" to be broken down. I don't think this is what Jesus meant at all. He may have meant that Christians in various denominations abandon their heretical teachings and agree on the truth of God's Word, making it possible for His prayer to be answered. Or, He may have meant for all of God's people to be united in purpose. When I hear people talk like this, I always think things like, "Now, I wonder how they expect the Baptists and the Methodists to come together in agreement? Will the Baptists say they have been wrong all these centuries regarding immersion for baptism, or will the Methodists confess to error in sprinkling? Obviously, for us all to become one, these differences will have to be eliminated. I would like to hear your take on this. Thanks!
