The Church Militant will probably never be united but the Church Triumphant has never been divided.

From the way I understand it:

Christians on earth (the Church Militant) are still struggling against sin in order that, when they die, they might go to heaven and be members of the Church Triumphant, those who have triumphed over sin.

So how does that square with it being ok to worship with people that don't believe in the doctrines of Christianity?

Define "worship," and which Christian doctrines these non-Christians don't accept.

Please.

Please.

The virgin birth, the resurrection, Jesus being the "only way the truth and the life and the only way to the Father is by him", Jesus being the only "Begotten" son of God.

I can worship next to anybody. What they're doing does not necessarily invalidate what I'm doing.

Virgin birth? Not a critical aspect of faith.

If they don't accept the resurrection, or don't accept Jesus, how does that affect what I'm doing?

Playing with words like "begotten" is pointless.

You honestly don't think that prophecy proclaiming that through the house of David there would be a virgin born Messiah isn't a critical point?  ::frustrated::

Talking with you is like dueling with a one armed man!

Well thank you. Actually, a one armed man could kill you as easily as a two armed one.
But that's beside the point.

If you don't want to believe that "virgin" means something other than a young woman, you will not go to Hell. If you think so, would you please explain how that could be possible.

It's the fact that what would be the amazing thing about a "young maiden" if that is what the word means having a baby?

I want you to show me that not believing the Virgin birth sends someone to Hell. Go ahead, give it a shot......

You need to define what you think critical means.
