  • 2. INTRODUCTION
    Are you a "splitter" or "adder"? In biology, for example, to catalog a species , the adder will seek the category in which the specimen has more characteristics in common, the divisor will focus on the differences and multiply the categories and sub ​​categories. These two trends also exist in the church.
  • 3. INTRODUCTION
    Are you a “splitter” oran “adder”? Commentyouranswer
  • 4. INTRODUCCION
    The adders will seek the unity. Sometimes at any cost, they will ignore the immorality or heresy. Splitters will tend to divide the church because of doctrine or practices that have little to do with themes of faith. Paul looked for unity as an adder, but he only accepted it if it was based on the gospel.
  • 5. INTRODUCTION
    There are "independent ministries" and "support ministries" that claim to work with the church.  What is your opinion about them?
  • 6. INTRODUCTION
    ExpectedLearning:
    Explain the concept of the unity of the gospel in the context of the unity of the church and decide to promote the unity in the diversity with responsibility
  • 7. OUTLINE
  • 8. I. CHURCH UNITY
    a. Itisorganizational
    Why was it important for Paul's unity in the church when he wrote tothe Corinthians?
    “that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
    1 Cor 1:10
  • 9. I. CHURCH UNITY
    a. Itisorganizational
    With Gentiles and Jews divided 
    Christ had been divided, the evangelization of the Gentile world 
    would be frustrated. When 
    nonbelievers perceive a  cluttered
    and confusing church they wonder
    if there is something  worthwhile 
    for which to be a Christian
  • 10. I. CHURCH UNITY
    a. It´ istheological
    Why circumcision was a controversial issue 
    Between Paul and certain Christians Jewish?
    “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing
    that counts is faith expressing itself through love”
    Gal. 5:6
  • 11. I. CHURCH UNITY
    b. Itistheological
    The problem was not about circumcision, but about 
    salvation. Salvation is by faith alone in Christ, not earned by 
    human obedience. The church is to reflect God in a harmonious unity in its doctrines
  • 12. II. THE TRUTH OF SALVATION
    a. Salvationthroughfaith in Christ
    • What reasons does Paul give to confront 
    Peter publicly?
    “When I saw that they were not acting in linewith the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas in front of them all, “You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs?” Gal 2:14
  • 13. II. THE TRUTH OF SALVATION
    a. Salvationthroughfaith in Christ
    If Judaizers triumphed, then
    the gospel of salvation by faith in the atoning death of Jesus would be supplanted by the doctrine of salvation 
    by works of the law. "The truth of the Gospel" would not be proclaimed any more.
  • 14. III. UNITY IN DIVERSITY
    b. Twogroups, onegospel of freedom
    • Whatdidunity mean in thediversity of theprimitivechurch?
    • 15. “On the contrary, they recognized that I had been entrusted with the task of preaching the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been to the circumcised.” Gal 2:7
    Acts11:25
  • 16. III. UNITY IN DIVERSITY
    a. Twogroups, onegospel of freedom
    The message for both groups was the same, only the condition differed from those to whom it was given. 
    There were two kinds of listeners who preach: to Jews and Gentiles but one gospel of freedom.(Gal 2:4)
  • 17. CONCLUSION
    • Explain the characteristics of unity in the church
    • 18. How can we avoid contaminating 
    the gospel when trying to control 
    people with our own ideas?
  • 19. CONCLUSION
    • What have we learned today?
    • 20. Unity is a characteristic of the Christian church.
    • 21. Unity is to live in harmony and it is based in the gospel: Christ
    • 22. What can we do nowwithwhatwelearned?
  • CONCLUSION
    Consider some of your church 
    situations that need to be solved in fulfilling the mission of preaching Christ.  How would you act to be an adder and a divider in search of unity? Ask God for wisdom in prayer and act in the name of the Lord
