Sharing the same Teacher

“But the anointing which you have received of him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him” (1 John 2:27)
 
So, if the one and only Holy Spirit is teaching every member of the body of Christ then you would expect a high degree of uniformity in what the body of Christ believes, right?
 
We all have the same Teacher, and this Teacher only recognizes Scripture as truth, so you would expect a high degree of uniformity in understanding of God’s word, and yet still a diversity of spiritual gifts.
 
And you would also expect this uniformity, which is the mark of sharing the same teacher, to manifest over the whole church age, at every time and in every nation.
 
Conformity to the one and only Christ has to manifest the oneness of God throughout His people.
 
Considering also that there are differing measures of faith among the members of the body.
 
Considering also that there are many TARES (weeds) sown in among the wheat, and, if the TARES are all being taught by the devil (and not the Holy Spirit) you would also expect a fair degree of uniformity among them.
