Historical Accuracy

Here is an excellent post by my friend and colleague Michael Haykin on "getting the facts straight." Sometimes I wonder how much the Lord's work has been hindered down through the years because of exaggerated caricatures and historical inaccuracies and the conceptual confusion they engender. Even today, in building bridges and trying to advance the cause of truth, one of the biggest challenges is understanding what other people are trying to say and why. While understanding certainly does not make all our differences disappear, it is the first big step in working toward a resolution.
