The recent blacklash over the Zimmerman case made me reflect on this topic.

Have you ever thought about unity? That is, what unites us as human beings? And God’s purpose in creating us was for unity. But it was for unity within the holy, perfect, harmonious, loving ways that He designed us to operate in.

So then, do the unity bonds that you’ve made or joined in with in your life have the highest respect for God and His ways?

First let’s recognize that no one and nothing on Earth is perfect … except God and His Kingdom. Therefore, that should be our first order of unity that supercedes all other unities. And the way we do that is (like Jesus said) “in Spirit and in Truth.”  That is, God’s Spirit is inside of us. Therefore, being in sync with that is a perfect bond source of unity. It also puts us in perfect harmony with our own being. And the Truth is found in the Bible (which I’ve proven to be true at

So now the questions are: where do we find unity, and how much compromise with God’s ways do we allow ourselves to sacrifice for the sake of unity in the world?

Here are some places that people find unity:

The Bible

Various Christian denominations

Other religions


Political parties





The predominant American culture


Spiritual leaders and movements

Sports teams

Schools and Alumni associations



TV shows

Music styles and artists



My conclusion in life is: only cling to and promote perfection. And if involved in other human groupings, never sacrifice perfection. Just try to shed it into each group.
