Formidable Voice to a Divided World

Should there be unity among all believers? This question has captivated the heart of man since the time of Christ. The Catholic church still embraces this notion of unity, but now allows great diversity among its ranks. The evangelical church has splintered off into a multitude of denominations each with their own exclusive doctrines and practices shunning the rest. This has also given rise to other fringe groups producing both fanatical and the heretical. Yet, Jesus Christ prayed for unity among all true believers, that they would be one as the Father and the Son are One, in unity of thought and action. Jesus went on to say that this unity among true believers would be a witness to the world that He was sent by the Father. Unity among all true believers would be a witness!

The world as a whole will not but happily celebrate when the witness is killed by the one who arises from the pit. For this witness is against everything they believe, for their deepest aspirations, and unfulfilled dreams. The world as whole wants peace at any cost, among all people, blurring the lines of nationality, culture norms and religious convictions. They long for a time when the entire world advances out of its infancy and reaches an age of maturity where all religions are on the same level with none having a corner on the truth. They long for a time when their counselors alone will be the embodiment of all truth given legislative ability to enact their will upon the people. In their mind this can only happen when the witness is removed. Continue reading The Witness
