One Same Mind
Let us reason first with earthly things, shall we? (Jn. 3:12)
No successful company can manage to grow profit without a team of united minds thriving to reach the same goal according to conditions given them.
It is impossible to build lodging with men following different blueprints
divided to construct a common design.
Such brings but discord (disagreement) resulting in no lodging (no safety).
One design plan created by the chief designer with men following the exact
specifications will indeed build together to reach a united goal.
Can we understand such order?
Let us remain in reason as we bring principle to spiritual matters.
The world and its “religions” are divided. That is why they build nothing but houses made with the traditions/hands of men (Mk. 7:8). Thousands upon thousands claiming allegiance to different gods teaching different paths to eternal punishment
(2 Thess. 1:8-9).
All denominations advocate for a different gospel than the One, unique, united Gospel we read of in the Bible. They are to be accursed.
The apostle Paul inspired by the Holy Spirit said such (Gal. 1:6-10).
From Muhammad to Buddha. JW’s to Mormons, to Masons. Catholics and Protestant division (Baptist, Pentecostal, Gospel Hall, Wesleyan, Methodist, Presbyterian, Orthodox, Mennonite, 7th day adventist, Salvation Army, and so on the list goes).
Their forefathers have fallen "away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits
and doctrines of demons (1 Tim. 4:1). In ignorance they continue to imitate blind leaders who remain loyal to the lies past on to them (Mt. 15:14).
These were planted from the lust of flesh
by the world and the prince who birth them (Mt. 15:13).
"Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away."
(2 Tim. 3:5)
"Is Christ divided?" 1 Cor. 1:4. NO!
You must open your mind/heart/honesty to "the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:" Col. 1:26
Let us now speak of the church/congregation belonging to Christ (Rom. 16:16)
In which unity has been commanded of us (ref. OP).
We are not to allow division entrance into our Master’s kingdom.
Wolves try very hard to do so.
We must be united in order to achieve the same goal. The Word of God does this.
“he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” – 1 Cor. 6:17.
How do we have unity?
If we live by His will and interpretation.
We are to be an assembly of faithful saints working together in all things good
for the furtherance of His kingdom and His gospel truth (Jn. 8:32)
therein saving mankind from the bondage of sin (Rom. 1:16).
God has given us precise, elaborate, and fine-tuned description of His people (Christians) being united in His spirit. He is the Chief Designer.
We are His workers.
“Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.” (James 2:24)
Without unity we collapse, fail.
We must be united in recognizing sin and the harm it brings.
We must be united in the plan of salvation (gospel) given us by God
to remedy the problem of sin/death.
We must be united in the description of His kingdom (Mt. 6:33).
Do you wish to have the One Same Mind God created us for?
You must hear the One Same gospel
(Rom. 10:17, 1 Cor. 15:1-4)
You must believe, have faith/trust in the hope and evidence presented within inspired Words.
(Jn. 3:16, Heb. 11)
You must repent/change your mind and life away from sin,
from the pursuits of worldly things that rust and die,
from the false teachings that enable all iniquity.
From so called "friends" and "family" encouraging you to remain lost.
You must confess publicly Christ as your risen Savior
You must be immersed in water for a spiritual birth washing your sins away
You must remain faithful to His kingdom till His return
(2 Pt. 1:10)
“Whoever believes and is immersed shall be saved”
Jesus Christ (Mk. 16:16a)
If you are willing to change and live for Christ according to His Words.
