Spiritual warfare: Denomination

So unity within the body has been weighing heavily on my heart a lot recently, though our war is within the unseen it doesn’t mean the enemy cant operate in the physical. Just as our god operates in the physical so does our enemy, and much like a physical war, a spiritual war is fought in similar ways. The easiest way to defeat your opponent is to divide his forces, and that’s what I feel is happening when people argue about which denomination is correct or incorrect, that effort would be much more useful in helping our brothers and sisters and serving and honoring the lord together as one. So I pray that we may stand together as truly one body so that we may love one another, and truly be more then conquerors in Christ Jesus.

Romans 14:5-8

One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord;[a] and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks. For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

1 Corinthians 1:10

10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Mark 12:29-31

29 Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’[a] This is the first commandment.[b] 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[c] There is no other commandment greater than these.”
