What do you think Christ and the Apostles would say?
Should a nonbeliever be converted to Christianity (regardless of the denomination), or should a Christian who is not part of the One True Church be converted? Which one do you think they would say is more important?
Lets look at both situations.
A nonbeliever (lets just assume he is Hindu) could be brought into a religion that is True, however, he might not belong to the True Church. If you look at all the denominations of Christianity, there is far more that unites us than divides us. If the Hindu converted to the Catholic Church for example, he would accept a Church that has a lot of overlap of theology and traditions as the Orthodox Church.
If a Baptist (for example) were to convert to the Orthodox Church, the number of Christians in the world would not change, but there would be a new member to the Orthodox Church. Should this take priority over the Hindu? As a Baptist, he will share a lot of theology and beliefs, but he wouldn't be part of the True Church.
Which would the Apostles and Christ say is more important? Should we increase the number of Christians, or should we work to unite Christianity?
