No, you are quite mistaken. Unity is the state of being united or joined as a whole, whereas, unification is the process of being united or made into a whole. You can't have unity without unification; it's that essential link, which needs to be understood. They are mutual ideas, and need each other in order to have some relevant meaning. Now by these strict definitions, the dialogue is the medium in achieving such unity, therefore, the purpose of dialogue must be of unification if we are to result in unity. I can accept the argument for mutual understanding, but the argument for unification has its merits as well.The entire argument about question 1 is redundant as you'll find out the answer in December anyway. Although, I put D - mutual understanding because it seemed the most correct. Social Justice is an initiative not a purpose, and unification could be construed as correct, however I think that the word unify means to become a single unit and I doubt any Christian variants have that as an ideal of their church. I think people are getting unity and unify mixed up. You can have unity without unification, just as you can have unification without unity. They're separate ideas.
i did dI didn't know the answers to these questions, anybody care to help?
1. Was the purpose of ecumenical dialogue Unification or Mutual understanding?
5. How was the formation of Uniting church received by the Christian denominations involved:
a. Almost all methodists supported it
b. Methodists opposed it
c. congrationalists opposed it
d. Prespyterians supported it
I had absolutely no idea on this one so i just guessed A.
Which of the following is a distinctive feature of Aboriginal spirituality?
a. places high value on material possessions
b. values competition within aboriginal communities
c. values between
d. makes no separation between spritual and secular.
I was tossing up between b or c and guessed B.
due to increasing secularisation, ecumenism allows them to unify for social justice and political pressure
I wrote about the NCCA, NSW Ecumenical Council, joint initiatives such as the Victorian bushfires
