Paul in Corinthians says ‘I appeal to you brothers and sister, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought’.
And again a few verses later, he asks ‘Is Christ divided?’
I do not believe the church was ever meant to be divided at all, not even into two groups. It weakens its influence and credibility. For people trying to seek Christ, it confuses them as to which group to join!!!
Today’s Christian churches needs to stand even more united than ever against the lures that Satan uses out in the secular world.
His last night on earth Christ prayed ‘I pray for all of those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in You.
John 17: 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—-I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity.
With only one God the Father, one God the Son, one God the Holy Spirit, our Savior’s cross was meant to unify us and make us one.
