“Blest be the dear uniting love
that will not let us part;
our bodies may far off remove,
we still are one in heart.”

“Joined in one spirit to our Head,
where He appoints we go,
and still in Jesus’ footsteps tread,
and do His work below.” 

“O may we ever walk in Him,
and nothing know beside,
nothing desire, nothing esteem,
but Jesus crucified!”

“We all are one who Him receive,
and each with each agree,
in Him the One, the Truth, we live;
blest point of unity!”

“Partakers of the Savior’s grace,
the same in mind and heart,
nor joy, nor grief, nor time, nor place,
nor life, nor death can part.”

“Blessed Be the Dear Uniting Love”, Charles Wesley (1742)

God’s Word is sufficient in all things for life and godliness. We have no need to lean upon the arrogant teachings of sinful man, nor should we close our eyes to the dangers of allowing men’s teachings to be planted in the fields where God’s sheep graze. 

There is a desire to see unity within the body, but unfortunately this unity is too often fostered at the expense of the sharpened sword of God’s Holy Word! 

For many professing Christians, doctrines such as evolution are considered secondary issues.  Ironically and sadly, many who are ardent followers, teachers, and writers of evolution don’t agree.  To them, evolution and all of its philosophies, are their primary source of meaning, and necessary in undermining the sufficiency and trust in the Lord Jesus and His Word. 

Consider the following quotes:

“Christianity has fought, still fights, and will fight science to the desperate end over evolution, because evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus’ earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin, and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the son of god. Take away the meaning of his death. If Jesus was not the redeemer that died for our sins, and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing.”   G. Richard Bozarth, “The Meaning of Evolution”, American Atheist, 20 Sept. 1979, p. 30

“Christianity is – must be! totally committed to the special creation as described in Genesis, and Christianity must fight with its full might, fair or foul against the theory of evolution.”   G. Richard Bozarth, “The Meaning of Evolution”, American Atheist, 20 Sept. 1979, p. 19



Unity in the Truth Part 3

We cannot create unity, but we can enter into the unity already created.   Who has made this unity for man, you might wonder?  You might reason, and rightly so, “If man is already condemned, serving his sentence, then man surely cannot exit his ‘jail cell’ to solve the emnity between God and all of manking.”  So then who has broken down this separating wall between God and man?  The answer is clear.  There is only one who could do such a marvelous, selfless and truly loving work.  It is none other than the man, Christ Jesus.  Continue reading

Unity in the Truth Part 2

As previously stated in Part 1, the desire and push towards unity is repeatedly repelled by the prideful result of division.  The push towards world peace seems always trampled under by war.  So before us lay two contradictory ideas: “Unity” and “Division”; “Peace” and “War”.  I also suggested that peace has already been obtained, yet to many it is not known.  Why?  For one simple reason.  Many have chosen to leave God out Continue reading
