Mark 9:38-40

9:38 John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone who doesn’t follow us casting out demons in your name; and we forbade him, because he doesn’t follow us.”

9:39 But Jesus said, “Don’t forbid him, for there is no one who will do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. 9:40 For whoever is not against us is on our side.


Is this the basis of the broad church? I note that 9:40 does not say, “Who ever is not with us is against us”, but the opposite: “Who ever is not against us is with us.”
