Unity

Compare these two truths:
“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” (Ephesians 4:1-3)

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” (Romans 16:17-18)

True unity always means, not only forbearing one another in love, but marking and avoiding those who serve themselves.

False unity is all inclusive of anyone and anything which claims to be Christian.

True unity discerns the body of Christ, as per the above scriptures.

Unlearned and immature Christians are often outraged when you mark and avoid false teachers and leaders.

The Liberal trend is toward an all inclusive false unity.

Do not “include” in your inclusiveness “Christians” whom the Apostles exhorted us to mark and avoid.

And on the other hand, do not make fleshly judgments, marking and avoiding those with whom you should forbear and keep the unity of the Spirit.

If you are in any way attracted to the religion industry or business then you will have to ignore this, it won’t “work” for you.

This reality is not easy to “walk out” in real life, yet there’s no way to avoid facing this reality.
