“Tolerance,” traditionally defined, is when we “agree to disagree.” But biblical “unity” in the church, is “agreeing to agree.” Unity is not created by hiding our true motivation and understanding so that we don’t offend people. Unity takes place when we together bring our motivations and understanding under the authority of the Word of God. This understanding of the kind of oneness that we share in Christ comes home to us as we look at the message of unity in Paul’s letters, beginning with Ephesians and 1 Corinthians.
