Obeying Jesus Is More Important Than Christian Unity

One of the concepts mentioned in the Bible is Christian unity. Unfortunately, Christians have elevated this teaching over everything else and treat it like it is the most important command in the Bible. We use unity to justify and make excuses for sin. We use unity to prioritize relationships with people over our relationship with Christ. However, the Bible tells us to do the opposite. Luke 14 teaches us to choose Jesus over family and friends. Thus, obeying Jesus is more important than Christian unity. Exodus 32 contains a radical example of what it looks like to choose obedience to our God over everything else. When the Israelites worshipped the golden calf, God commanded some of the Levites to kill the idolaters. But obedience was very difficult for the Levites because the idolaters were their friends, neighbors, and brothers. Learn more in this video:
