11: Unity In Diversity

What's up with unity? Can there be true unity while recognizing distinctions? Should churches be pursuing multiethnic congregations? We're finishing up our three-part series over the Thabiti Anyabwile and James White discussion, and we hope you like it!

Passage of the day: 
“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual. The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 2:12-16, ESV).
