1 Corinthians 12:25 so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.

The church is every born-again believer. There should be no division within the church. We all believe that Jesus is the Son of God Who died on the cross for our sins.

The church shouldn’t be divided based on interpretation of scripture. If someone interprets a passage of scripture differently than another, that’s not a reason to uproot themselves and start a church with everyone who agrees with them. We can disagree and still be one. Disagreement of scripture is not our enemy. The enemy is in the world reeking havoc, while believers are dividing themselves based on doctrine.

The church shouldn’t be divided based on biblical topics or commands. If a group of believers wants to focus on giving to the poor while another group wants to increase their faith in God’s word, that shouldn’t be two different churches. There’s room for us all. Every command is important. Believers shouldn’t criticize other believers because they feel like they’re doing something more pleasing to God. God is pleased with it all.

The only reason why there should be different bodies of believers is for proximity to our homes. When Paul was establishing churches in Corinth or Ephesus, he wasn’t giving each church a different set of instructions. Paul’s message, as well as our message, should be the same. Our message is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Occasionally, we should all (worldwide) come together as one body and worship the one true God and our Savior Jesus. Can you imagine the power in that place?

Let’s unite, not divide.
