Anachronism

Out of order

As a boy, I asked my dad if he wore blue or gray in the Army.

That was long before I ever heard of anachronism: “the representation of someone as existing or something as happening in other than chronological, proper, or historical order” (http://www.thefreedictionary.com).

Asking, “What was the denominational affiliation of the apostle Peter?” is like wondering what kind of car he drove.

Jesus prayed that His disciples “may all be one . . . . perfected in unity” (John 17:21-23).

Also out of order

Religious division runs counter to His prayer and to His plan (1 Corinthians 1:10-13).

If we would follow the same teaching as the first-century church, we would be what they were:

Simply Christians, nothing more, nothing less (Acts 2:42; 11:26).
