Getting Ahead: Unity or division?

By John G. Pfeifer - Religion Writer

“Now that they are of one mind, they can do anything!”

This is a statement made by God early on in the history of mankind. It is still true today. You can see it in sports, businesses, and government. It is one of the absolutes that have stood since the creation of man himself. It has been proven time and time again. Truth will always be truth. Styles and opinions will come and go, but truth will not. Facts are facts and we need to know the facts.

“A house divided against itself cannot stand!”

This is a statement made by the son of God while He was experiencing life in a human body. It is still true today. People pulling in different directions accomplish very little. Over 6,000 years ago God made a statement about unity and over 2,000 years ago Jesus made a statement about division. Both have been proven over and over through the existence of mankind. This is a fact!

Truth is established by facts but knowledge of these facts cannot be found in division. Both sides are convinced that their opinion is truth. We desperately need to know the facts to have one mind and avoid division; but it seems that all we are getting is information driven by selfish agenda.

If only there was a source of absolute facts that we could all relay on. If we found such a source, we could do anything we set our mind to and our house would never be divided. Do you think it possible that such a source exist?

These are the questions that we discuss at The Gathering Place every Wednesday evening at 7 and Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 10:30.
