Is Unity Without Truth Possible?

“Fuzzy truth” is often preferred as a means of providing supposed unity. The idea is, stay with broad general definitions of terms, so that the maximum number of Christians will feel comfortable with each other’s beliefs. But is this true unity? And which is more important, truth or unity? see also www.disciplemaking.net
