"Unity vs. Homogeneity"

 

People in denominations share like beliefs; this is homogeneity.

Homogeneity is "sameness". It's easy to love when we agree.

True Divine Unity is revealed in the midst of Diversity.

We must love each other more than our "Belief Statements".

ONE THING

"We Must Agree on One Thing; That Jesus is the Only  Way to God."

Summing It Up

A Cord of Three Strands is Not Easily Broken."  Ecclesiastes 4:12

  • Unity makes us Stronger.

  • A Body Needs All Its Parts to be whole.

  • Denomination is Man's work, not God's.

  • When we Unite instead of Fight the World Sees Christ.

  • We Don't have to agree on Everything, only on Jesus.

"The schemes of our enemy have worked to limit the range of God's manifest Glory in in His Church.  Defeating them requires a Unified Church, bound together by our Common Savior Jesus Christ."

Did Jesus Have  Anything to Say About It?

"And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we [are]."  John 17:11 

"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me."

John 17:20-21

"By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."  

John 13:35
