The first Jerusalem Council in Acts 15 brilliantly shows the damage false doctrine can have as believers were still clinging to the law! I hate to break it to Ron Allen but if any part of the Jerusalem Council had refused the decision, they too would have been treated as non-Christians. The body of Christ is not broken. It is being starved to death by the purpose driven industrial complex and soon will have to come out from among the apostate church, but it is not broken. It cannot be broken because it understands that the third set of key verses above paint the picture for what true Christian unity is all about and it surely is not found in diversity. That is carnal nonsense. You see, in the Galatian Church, the congregants were easily taken in by false doctrine. In the key verses we see Paul astonished that they so quickly abandoned the Christ that saved them for a different gospel. This is critical because we need to understand there are false gospels and false christs that lead people to false conversions. These are the people who stand before Christ in Matthew 7 and say, "Lord Lord." Keep reading these key verses and we see what God Almighty thinks about unity for unity's sake.
I always find it discouraging to see Christians defend the wolves over the sheep. What part of this are they not getting? Let anyone who comes with a different gospel be accursed! You want to sell me the prosperity gospel. Be accursed! You want to tell me I have the power to create with my own words and I am a little god? Be accursed! You want to convince me that your angel feathers, gold dust, gem stones and glory clouds are real? Be accursed! You want to tell me that your school can teach the gifts of the Holy Spirit? Be accursed! I have no time to be unified with Satan! Paul closes this section by pointing out the obvious. By taking the path of greatest resistance, he is clearly not trying to please man. Beloved, if we were trying to please man and not God, then we would hold hands with the doctrinal devils and sing Kumbaya until Jesus comes and says He never knew any of us. As a servant of Christ, heaven forbid.
"Pope Francis has said, "Unity brought by the Spirit can harmonize every diversity." Unity in diversity recognizes the contributions of other streams of Christianity and blends them together in a symphony of harmony. It is a unity of the Spirit, not in doctrine or church government. During the second 10 days of Teshuvah, from Sept. 9 to Sept. 18, we will be praying for God's people and the healing of the broken body of Christ as God's people come together, united in Christ." -- Ron Allen
Really. Pope Francis. This is where the road to the ecumenical end times church begins beloved. With Rome and the apostate church seeking unity. This will lead to the one world religion prophesied about in Revelation. Consider how frighteningly wrong this statement is:
It is a unity of the Spirit, not in doctrine
There is no unity of the spirit without unity of doctrine! The spirit is God and God is His word! Consider the final set of key verses above that speak directly to what we are supposed to be unified in. standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, striving side by side for the faith of the Gospel. Did we catch that today? For the faith of the Gospel. It is the Gospel that produces a unified body of Christ. Wolves do not deserve prayer, fellowship or even consideration. They do not deserve our unity but rather, the working end of the shepherd's rod. Ron Allen now lists the upcoming schedule for his fake Teshuva with accompanying scriptures. Let us see what the bible actually says:
Sept. 9: The blessings of unity (Ps. 133).
Sept. 10: Unity in Christ (John 17:20--22).
Sept. 11: Accepting our brothers (Rom. 15:5--7).
