Pride is the root of every conflict that has ever existed. Seeking to participate in the creation of the division of God's children is a rebellion against God, God's love, and God's entire Word. Every Word in the Bible is God, and every Word is love.
Scripture states that there is nothing greater than God's love. This includes one of the greatest causes of division in Christianity, which is the prideful posturing of humans placing their time-based interpretations of knowledge as greater importance than the love of God. Presumptuousness, by definition, is rooted in pride, with someone placing themselves as having more authority than they actually have.
Rebellion in choosing not 'to love as God loves' is a mockery of the love of Jesus and His sacrifice, which was an act of love for all children of God.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1st Epistle of John 4:8 He that loves not, knows not God, for God is love.
Scripture teaches that humans were created for three things, to be loved by God, to love God, and to love each other. Learned knowledge of the Word, without intent of application to be an endearing gracious expression of the love of God, is sterile. God is love. Teaching the law from the Word of God without the engaging love of God forefront and center is a sin against God's law. However unlearned that a Christian is at having the understanding to love 'as God loves,' is the lifetime of work that is in place for that Christian.
1st Epistle of John 3:3 And every man that has this hope in him purifies himself, even as he is pure.
The reason as to 'why' that God does everything is 'to love.' The reason as to 'how' that God does everything is from His wisdom. God commands His children to do the same, in priority of seeking 'the understanding of the wisdom to love as He loves.'
Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom in the principal thing, therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting get understanding.
John 15:12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you.
Love includes many things such as showing amazing grace, exceeding tolerance, extraordinary kindness, heartfelt mercy, calm patience when teaching, humility within gratitude, loving compassion, fellowship in congregation, and inspiring others for encouragement, hope, and faith. Love also includes showing a great interest in the lives of others, comforting one another, emitting selflessness, showing a joy in sacrifice for the benefit of others, a deep affection of empathetic understanding, meaningful tenderness, enthusiasm of care and concern toward one another's plights, placing boundaries, a great sensitivity toward the feelings of others, and a desire to grow to love all of God's children as God loves them.
Psalm 86:15 But thou, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous, in mercy and truth. No one knows what a person is truly feeling and living through in a day. Tragedies happen, people are ill, the pain of the loss of a loved one, brokenness, losses, relationship heartaches, devastation, distraught, betrayals, suicidal, lonesome, beaten down, the feeling of being without purpose, etc.
Luke 4:22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of the mouth of Jesus. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son.
When someone sincere and grateful truly knows and understands who is God, they are in thanks, understanding their truth compared to the truth of Jesus and His amazing grace. Worship includes recognizing the magnitude that is everlasting life. The love of God is so great that He has created an everlasting paradise for all of His children. This includes a perpetual feeling of immersion 'as one' within the purity of Holiness, euphoria of divine love, a peace passing all understanding, and all senses on high living in a beauty beyond comprehension.
Those who know of and hold to the love of God are excited to share and emanate the light, joy, peace, and love of Jesus to every one of the Lord's children. This includes foremost, having a Spirit-filled and led life prioritized in leading others to the hope and salvation of Jesus.
1st Epistle of John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another: For love is of God; and everyone that loves is born of God, and knows God. He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.
Scripture is direct in stating that when someone has received Jesus and has become a Christian, their precedent action of love is to reciprocate this gift by leading others to accept Jesus as their Savior. To do anything less as a priority than seeking to unite with other Christians in prayer, fellowship, and council for the greater glory of God…is contempt of the love, humility, fellowship, and the sacrifice of Jesus.
1st Epistle of Peter 4:10-11 As every man has received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak with the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as the ability which God gives; that God in all things may be glorified in Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
For prayers of specifics, someone would need to know the state of the sheep. God presents his children with a remarkable opportunity to show an exceeding love for each other with prayers facilitating amazing blessings from the Spirit of truth. The wickedness of human glory can be instantly replaced with humility to love as Christ loves through an intercession from prayer.
Private conventions revolving around wicked declarations of what one group of people has learned and another group hasn't yet learned, can be dismantled from prayer for the glory of God. Just one prayer of faith, love, and conviction, can cause a sweeping revival of the love and hope of Jesus.God has love in fellowship with the approach of loving every child of His the same. Anyone who does not love all Christians the same as God loves is the work that God commands someone to prioritize.
God's love includes the youngest of His children and those of any age who haven't any degree or varying degrees of knowledge. Someone's time-line of learning is not graduation justifying not loving all sisters and brothers in Christ. Nothing is greater than the love of God.The love of God gives His children the amazing gift of 'free will.' This includes the richness that it is for someone being submissive without ceasing in prayer, allowing God's Holy Spirit to work through them to love as He loves. The Father's love, above all, is the gift of Jesus to atone for the sin of the world.
1st Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
1st Epistle of John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
God loves and has fellowship with all of His children of all denominations at all times. It's in God's highest commandments as well as in all of God's law that 'all' of God's children are to love and fellowship with 'all' other of God's children. The blood, sacrifice, humility, and love of Jesus is greater than any other Christian priority.
1st Epistle of John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.Hope Without Jesus today, no one has any hope.
No division of Christianity comes from a new Christian who is without any Bible knowledge but having a sincere heart to progress in the understanding of the wisdom to love as God loves. God states that someone can 'know' all of the knowledge of the Bible, have the entire Bible memorized, and know absolutely nothing if they do not love as God loves with that knowledge.
1st Corinthians 8:1-3 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but charity (charity- from caritas, is Christ like love) edifies. And if any man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. But if any man loves God, the same is known of him. Jesus is the only way to everlasting life.
John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father but by me. Jesus A world of divided Christians is a world in rebellion against the love and light of God. Anyone prioritizing intolerance toward any child of God is in rebellion against the only reason as to why they exist, which is 'to be loved and to love' everlasting through the sacrifice and blood of Jesus.
1st Epistle of John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleans us from all sin.
Discernment and prudency to separate from heretics and abusers, is different than seeking separation in the pursuit of self-righteousness. Every Word in the Bible is many things, including God having fellowship with all of His children. Every Word in the Bible is leading someone to Jesus, every Word in the Bible is a gift from Jesus, every Word in the Bible is a gift of Jesus to give back, every Word in the Bible is the grace and truth of Jesus, every Word in the Bible is love, and every Word in the Bible 'is' Jesus.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwell among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
God, who is love, is not mocked. God is love. God doesn't rebel against Himself, God forbid. God is love. Many people don't know Jesus, and those who do, are commanded as priority to bring all others who they can within their lifetime to accept Jesus as their Savior. Lest many Christians continue in sin, it's time to join together in the amazing gift that they have been given, to pray together, and pray and council together, leading as many people as possible to our only Savior, Jesus.
1st Epistle of John 4:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loves not his brother abides in death.
1st Epistle of John 4:12,21 No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us. And this commandment have we from him, That he who loves God loves his brother also.
Jesus said in 15:12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you.
Jesus said in John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever shall believe in him, should not perish.
