Keep up the good work!

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift. Ephesians 4:1-7 (NAS)

Although each Christian must teach the things that the Bible teaches, Ephesians 4:1 reminds us that it must be in "a manner worthy of the calling...with all humility and gentleness, patience and forbearance."

We Are To Be Unified...As God and Jesus Are Unified:

In John 17:11, Jesus prayed that His disciples be one, even as Jesus and God are one.

John 17:11 "And I am no more in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep them in Thy name, the name which Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, even as We are. (NAS)

We are to unified as Jesus and God are unified.  Jesus does not teach a different doctrine than God.  God does not teach one thing...and then Christ another.  The Holy Spirit does not have a different message.

Jesus said:  "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works."  John 14:10 (NAS)

With respect to the Holy Spirit, Jesus said:  "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.  John 16:13 (NAS)

Let us all pray that each follower of Christ strives to be one with each other....just as Jesus and His Father are one.
