Bible Note: "I did little think ever to have lived to see the day wherein the churches of Christ should have so little concern in one another as they have. There is not that love among ourselves which there ought to be." --John Owen (1616-1683)
I wish that I could have seen how the churches related with one another during Owen's lifetime that prompted his statement. I would like to have seen the before as well as the after. Although I would deem that Owen would be astonished by what we see exemplified daily in our own time.
