Here I go, using a friend's material again. Same friend, too. Pastor Gary Lanier.
This blog is named after the title of one of his finest songs (he's a song-writer, among other really serious talents). Now I'm going to quote one of his favorite expressions:
MPCs - Minor personal convictions.
Definition: All those pesky little doctrinal beliefs that separate Christians, and divide God's church into Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, Assembly of God, Pentecostals, etc., etc. When all that really matters is our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If we've taken care of that, all the rest is just MPCs.
