The Contradiction of Division

Robert Jenson observes in the preface to his Systematic Theology, Volume I that “to live as the church in a situation of a divided church–if this can happen at all–must at least mean that we confess we live in a radical self-contradiction and that by every churchly act we contradict that contradiction (vii).” Jenson notes that theology can only done in the “unitary church of the creed.” Theology is ecclesiology. Theology functions best in the context of ecclesial harmony.
