Church divided is a disgrace to the Lord. But the church that would sacrifice the uniqueness of Christ for the sake of unity scares me more than the fragmented body of Christ.
There, where unity is worshiped, along the lines of a common and compromising minimum, and at the expense of one’s undivided allegiance to Jesus Christ, as the only Lord, King and Savior, it is only a matter of time and smart deceptions when some other “Christ”, some beastly parasite will take the throne.
When Jesus prayed for the “unity of all believers” He meant the Church united in and around Jesus Christ alone, with no one else sharing His throne (John 17:20-23).
He meant the Church of which He Himself is the Head, and the only head. A transplanted head of someone else on the body of the Church, or some other heads added, would turn such a church into a monster.
