Rethinking Christian Unity

Frank Viola on Christian unity…

God Is.'s insight:

I have said it before, I have come accross it before, I will say it again… in different words yet same words: Divided we perish. United we stand… Here is another Christian talking about the same topic: “There is one body and one Spirit” Eph. 4:1–6. Everything Paul wrote in this letter was based on the conviction that the body of Christ is one. “One Lord, one faith, one [Spirit] baptism, one God and Father of all” (vv. 5–6). Our lives also must express this conviction. And the way we express it is by affirming our love for other believers—even for those with whom we differ. Paul reminds us, “Be completely humble and gentle.” Christians do differ, and differ on important matters. If we focus on our differences, convinced as we are that we are right and the others are wrong, we will become proud and judgmental. Only a humble spirit will free us to love without feeling the need to debate our differences. Only a humble spirit will maintain the bond of peace. Don’t be proud. No matter how doctrinally correct you may be, if your attitude denies the oneness of the body of Christ, you are wrong.
