As promised on Sunday, I want to list all of the scriptures below for everyone's reference. For the sake of brevity I will cite book, chapter, and verse this time (instead of typing out the actual verses) as otherwise it would spread over to several pages.
This first group of passages deals with Unity - unity being addressed and defined by Jesus, John, Paul, and others. Remember, the scriptures speak of UNITY, Not Uniformity. Unity is present when people Want to obey and when they submit to the ever present focus of the group - our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:10-13
1 Corinthians 3:3-4
1 Corinthians 10:23-33
1 Corinthians 12:12-14
2 Timothy 2:23-24
This next set of passages contains the "new command" given by Christ - Love.
1 Corinthians 13
