A well known pastor recently said this: "Church unity is more important than theological correctness."
He cited John 17, in which Jesus prayed that His followers "may be one as we are one — I in them and you in me — so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."
He added this: it's significant that Jesus prayed for the disciples to be one, rather than for other things, including good health and being theologically accurate. He prayed for our oneness, that we'd be on the same page. "Unity is mission critical and disunity disrupts the mission."
He also mentioned that when we get to Heaven we'll discover that all of us were wrong about some things theologically.
