A Voice in the
A chorus of voices keeps harping the unity tune. What they are saying is, "Christians of all doctrinal shades and beliefs must come together in one visible organization, regardless....Unite, unite!" Such teaching is false, reckless, and dangerous. Truth alone must determine our alignments. Truth comes before unity.
Unity without truth is hazardous. Our Lord's prayer in John 17 must be read in its full context. Only those sanctified through the Word can be one in Christ. To teach otherwise is to betray the gospel. --Charles Haddon Spurgeon
" ...and they have believed that You sent Me. I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours....Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth...that they may be one in Us...I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one." (~John 17:8-9,17,21,23)
Pilate said to Him, "What is truth?" (John 18:38)
Jesus said to him (Thomas),"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6) (VW)
