superficial unity
when believers unite with unbelievers.
what fellowship has light with darkness?
such a farce.
such artificial unity.
such hypocrisy.

superficial separation
when believers divide from believers--
by this shall all men know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another.
how can you love God, whom you cannot see,
if you do not love your brother whom you can see?
such a farce.
such artificial separation.
such hypocrisy.

"walk in a manner worthy of the calling
with which you have been called,
with all humility and gentleness,
with patience,
showing forbearance to one another in love,
being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit
in the bond of peace.

"one body
and one Spirit,
just as you were called
in one hope of your calling;

"one Lord,
one faith,
one baptism,
one God and Father of all
who is over all
and through all
and in all."

true unity
among those
who are
in God's Spirit.

this is what is under the surface.
