"Eight issues that do not make or break Christianity"
This is an excellent post. To these I would add our position on homosexuality, marriage, birth control, and many, many more.
As our pastor said on Sunday, in a approximation of a John Wesley quote: On the essentials let us agree, but let us agree to disagree on the rest. The definition of essentials will vary, of course, but I would venture to say that a shorter list of "essentials" is better, in my opinion. The more something is an "essential tenet of faith", the more difficult it is to evaluate it objectively.
