“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
– 1 Corinthians 1:10
Some wonder what it means to be ‘united in the same mind,’ and ‘united in the same line of thought.’ Some wonder if that meant we all must think and act alike. We think the answer lies in understanding the difference between unity and uniformity. This two part article will discuss this distinction and show that what Paul was encouraging was unity.
