Archbishop Rowan and Frank Skinner in conversation

Archbishop Rowan and Frank Skinner in conversation

If you had told me a year ago, or anytime previously in my life when I 'thought' I was a Christian, that I would listen to a discussion between a Roman Catholic and an Archbishop, I would have probably scorned the very idea, because I was the 'right' sort of Christian and well, they're not.

God released me from those prejudices and opened my mind and heart to listen to the way other people believe. 

Of course there are going to be differences in the way we meet and worship, but at the end of the the very end of the day........when all days have ended and time is no more.......God will know our heart, and I don't think he will say, although I think I used to think he would say "depart from me, I never knew you because you are wearing a cassock"

I suppose what I'm getting at is I had a very narrow-minded view of Christianity, and doctrines I saw as unnecessay equaled unChristian.  Whereas in actual fact there can be nothing broader than Christianity Jesus died for ALL.

Within denominations there will be people who have mis-understood the idea of their faith, I know, I was one of them.  But there will also be within those denominations true believers of God and Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and how they worship and what they wear won't change what they believe in their hearts.

If you have some time to listen to this discussion I would recommend it, whether you're Roman Catholic or Anglican or whether you're just someone who loves Jesus and believes in God as your Heavenly Father.

I don't know what is in the Archbishops heart or Frank Skinners heart, but God does and that's good enough for me!
