William Johnson, the first President of the Southern Baptist Convention in his work, The Gospel Developed had this to say about Christian unity:
In this exhibition of my views, I intend no censure upon my brethren, or others who entertain different views. The right which I exercise in holding my views of divine truth, I cheerfully accord to all others to hold theirs. My sole design is to state what I believe to be the truth on an important subject, and not to assume the office of reformer, censor, or dictator. I most sincerely deprecate disruption in churches, and disturbance of harmony among members. For love’s sake, therefore, I rather beseech my brethren, being such an one as William the aged, that they would consider these things prayerfully, and may the Lord give us all an understanding in them.
