The disunity in the body of Christ is not a result of a lack of theological consistency or purity. It is because we make Christianity about theology and not the Kingdom of God. This is not to say that good theology isn't important, but in our relationships with each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, God can overcome theological disagreements. However, he will not make anyone want the Kingdom, and if someone desires to be a Christian without desiring the Kingdom, they will desire to make themselves the king of what they have access to. They will desire to control it, and they will not be able to fellowship with those who do not agree with them. If we start with the Kingdom, though, we can fellowship with anyone else who wants the kingdom.
