Did Matthew agree with Mark on every theological issue?

We have enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.” –Jonathan Swift (Irish satirist)

Many Christians hear and apply the expression, “Hate sin; love the sinner.”  Today however some show more love to non-believers living in sin than to believers that doctrinally disagree with their interpretation of Scripture.  Did Matthew agree with Mark on every theological issue? or Peter with Paul?  The short answer is no: and sometimes this may have had more to do with their personalities than doctrine.  We always stand for truth, but let’s pray for discernment in picking our disagreements.    

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love  (John 4:8, NLT).
