The terms “Christian” and “Atheist” are mutually exclusive except when defined by words in one sense and actions in the other.

Part 5 - Unity of the Spirit

As Jesus prayed for us, all the believers who would come to faith in him until the world ends, He prayed for unity. He prayed that we would love one another.
