  1. Hi John,

    Excellent job with this study on likemindedness!

    I, as a Catholic, feel united with my Christian brethren in many ways but mainly in the most important reason for our unity, which is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. However, I can see the reality of our division as well, which is very reminiscent of the division of which Paul speaks in 1 Cor 1:12.

    How, as Christians, should we work toward the unity that Paul mentions, so we can stand firm, in one spirit with one mind?

    I agree that discussions between Christian people with different beliefs, is one way to work toward this unity. I have learned over time that an important element to an effective discussion of this nature (with Christian brethren) is in treating your brother’s or sister’s beliefs with the greatest respect and trying to forget about who the “big brother” might be, while at the same time explaining your faith gently and lovingly and always looking for the truth.

    God bless!

  2. Hey Polo! I realized this comment buried in the moderate bucket… sorry for the delay. Short answer… continue towards likemindedness through discussing the differences that yet remain in love and humility. We look to the Word as the final authority in settling the differences… it is sufficient for every good work. 2 Tim 3:16-17
