My DH and I are going to a new church. We started attending a sunday school class called connections. It is to get to know the church better. It is a huge church. Next week we will be talking about the church doctrine. The leader of the class said in a brief overview of next week, that many of the pastor's disagree about some doctrines but all believe that Christ died for our sins, rose again and He is the way to heaven, this is the essential doctrine. But then he said something about them disagreeing on marriage/divorce, baptism, pre trib/post trib among some other issues. DH and I were talking and feel that these, even though they are not essential to salvation, are essential to believing the Bible as a whole and are very important. We don't understand our leaders of a church can disagree on such topics. What do you all think? Could you stay at church were the leaders do not agree on issues? Are they nonessential?Answer Question

Shaneagle88: lisarose the only thing I liked about the JW is that they are big on family. (sorry I don't agree with much of the doctrines there)
Thanks!! we do put our Brothers and Sisters before the Laws of Nations if they are in conflict with God's laws like we would not go to war because killing doesn't show love to people and everything we believe is from the Bible because we only follow it without the Traditions of men, we're Sola Scripta.

2mothershelpers: you should really read James chapter 2, it's the Works of the Mosaic Law that would not save you but works of love are the product of Faith.....
