Biblical Unity: A “Mushy” Orthodoxy

Biblical unity is not founded on an agreement among men. We cannot enter into it by our own will. We can only enter into this union when we submit to God’s will and obey the Gospel command to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ. We, who are then born of The Spirit and not by will of the flesh, are united in Christ only by and because of God’s great love. Biblical unity is founded on the love of God in Christ Jesus (John 17:23) and is only maintained by our love toward one another (Col. 3:12-3:14).

We cannot get the cart before the horse. Biblical unity is not determined by an agreement among men on orthodox doctrine but there will surely be no orthodoxy apart from biblical unity.

Awwwwww, I love you too Sis! I was really tickled to see your recent post as well. I'm still tweaking my thoughts on the disposition of Judas. ;-)

I like the thoughts, Kc. But before I can comment any further I needsome clarification on something: With whom was Chrit unified?I think the guideline should be that we are unified with those with whom Christ was/is unified.

(No...that's not my COC background talking. I'm more interested in what or where the dividing line is with regard to Biblical unity.)

Seems to me that those who are unified WITH Christ will also be unified with those IN Christ.

I've not landed solidly on an answer to this question yet. But I'm curious about your thoughts.

Jeff I totally agree and so much so that I presupposed that in this post. Thanks so much for making that distinction clear.

Question, would John 3:1-21 be a good passage to use in sharing the gospel one on one?

Florin welcome and thanks for your questions! Please forgive my tardiness but we had our three little ones deposited at our doorstep on Wednesday and they’ve really kept us busy! ;-) We’ll have the two boys (3 and 2) for another week or so and I hope to be a better blog host after that. ;-)

I hope Dr. Reitman’s comments answered your question but please always feel free to pry harder and even disagree if necessary. ;-)
