UNITY BRINGS BLESSING
The Bible declares that when a group of people dwell together in unity – there God commands the blessing.
WE ARE BORN INTO DISUNITY
We are born into sin and raised into selfishness.
This aberration and desire for exaltation of self – leads to strife, division & disunity.
CLASSISM CREATES DISUNITY
The poor and the oppressed will be a constant in a sinful world. The devil’s five “I wills” showed his desire for self-exaltation – and brought disunity and division to heaven.
Classism is the cause of all disunity.
UNITY IS POSSIBLE
God promises to bless those who dwell together in unity.
The goal of the Christian is to bring peace into our world by dwelling together in unity.
DISUNITY IS NOT JUST DISAGREEMENT
Disagreement is having different views or opinions on things.
Disagreement will always be with us – as we all have different world views.
Disagreement is when we do not honour another’s difference.
Overcoming disagreement is how we grow and mature.
DISUNITY IS DISHONOURING THOSE WHO DISAGREE
When we dishonour those we disagree with – we create disunity.
Disunity happens – when you disenfranchise those who disagree with you.
DISUNITY IS ELIMINATED THROUGH HUMBLING SELF AND HONOURING OTHERS
Disunity is created when we dishonour the other person and reject their views.
When we humble ourselves and honour others – we allow divergent opinions – while retaining a spirit of unity.
UNITY BINDS US TOGETHER
When people commit to dwelling in unity – they are committing to honouring those in their world – by showing their willingness to be bound together with cords of love, acceptance and forgiveness.
UNITY CAN NEVER BE COMMANDED OR ENFORCED
Unity is always the result of different people with differing views – choosing to dwell together with the same spirit, sound and purpose.
HOW GOOD AND HOW PLEASANT IT IS WHEN
PEOPLE CHOOSE TO DWELL TOGETHER IN UNITY
