“Maybe it doesn’t matter to Him?”
I asked, as my friend looked on in utter disbelief for what had just been said. We had been discussing the state of the church in its four major divisions: Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican and Protestant. (For the sake of brevity, I have lumped all us Protestants into one category.
