The desire to bring all people under one head has been in man's heart since the beginning. This is no accident, but purposed. It is the manner in which people are gathered under this leadership which identifies one man's efforts from another. I believe we are all one family, separated only by time, geography and ideas.
Are you divided against your fellow man according to political ideology? Does a flag, symbol or religion separate you from your fellow man? Science has finally concluded all men share a common maternal ancestor. About time. Perhaps now some can accept what others have believed for centuries: Noah's wife had three sons.
The only identity ever mentioned and worth retaining is "child of God."
Why? It unifies. It also places you under the authority of an Everlasting Father.
Do you really think God sees through the paradigms of color, ethnic, political and other such things that men have made up? Why then have you allowed these ideas divide you?
God sees either His obedient child or His disobedient child. Every other identity has a dark motive. Look at how other identities cause havoc and division amongst otherwise likeminded people. There are too many divisions to list. What is better is to list the unity among humanity: Christ.
The Lord will be King over the whole earth. On that day there will be One Lord, and His Name the only Name.
- Zechariah 14: 9
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I Am in You. May they also be in Us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me.”
- John 17: 20-21
