    In the end, the spiritual perspective is Godward, right?

    I think a study of John's First Epistle with its strong theme of fellowship, would be good in the light of Amos 3.3.

    Only by walking in righteousness can any two people walk together forever in peace.

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, it would be good if professing Christians who are always talking about so called 'unity' could relate what they are pushing for to actual Biblical doctrine; a radical re-think might then be necessary.

    Yes striving for true unity is the goal. True unity as per scripture is having the “fellowship of the Spirit”. Which is when one’s personal relationship with Christ is touching, speaking, having intercourse with another persons personal relationship with Christ. All else is human reasoning being in agreement, which sooner or later will devolve into opinions.

    Blessings as we strive to make this a living reality in our lives.

    Much love in Christ, Not me

    It's a spiritual unity which in principle is already there, and not something that has to be imposed.

    Experiencing and tasting this “fellowship of the Spirit” is a awesome blessing indeed.

    John's First Epistle says a lot about fellowship also...

    Bearing in mind the principle of Amos 3.3, the theme of fellowship in John's First Epistle (there are other New Testament references also) makes for a good study.

    On secondary issues, such as end times, alcohol, smoking/chewing, attire at church, yes. But on the essentials, no.

    But the context of Amos 3 is God’s ppl mingling with the world. We’re commanded to not marry a lost person(if we are saved), as that will cause strife.

    It's funny how so many Christians don't seem to see the unequal yoke in marriage as leading to problems...

    That’s why God commanded Israel not to marry pagans who resided outside of Israel. It would lead them into idolatry. Marrying a lost person could drag you away from the things of God.
