There is only one way to achieve unity in the Lord. It can not be a matter of legislation by any hierarchy. Synods and councils cannot vte it into reality. In fact, such complex systems in religion help to create the :BABEL" of voices already in our midst. The only answer is an open heart toward the word of God! Until men are willing to put aside denominational allegiance and sectarian strife we shall see division running rampant. The creed books and catechisms, authorized by men, have helped create the problem of division that exists. If we achieve unity, we must leave all these behind and let Christ, the author of Christianity, rule our lives by the New Testament Scriptures.
In the united states, at the begining of World War 11, a ferventappeal was made to the entire nation. We were urged to be just Americans- notnity as Christ prayed for it (John 17:20-21). Nothing short of it will surfice, " I beseech you, brethern, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgement" (1Cor. 1:10). Are we willing to pay the price, to do just that? How glorious it is to be neither Catholic, Prodestant nor Jew-but just to be Christian!
