On the "Question of Authority" thread, preacher4truth brought up the subject of the seven "ones" listed in Ephesians chapter 4. I suggested a thread on the topic, and here it is. Just in case someone is not familiar with the text (not likely, but why take chances), here is the section of Scripture I'd like to discuss on this thread... Eph 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Eph 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; Eph 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, Eph 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. For the sake of clarity, here they are in a numerical list: 1. One body 2. One Spirit 3. One hope 4. One Lord 5. One faith 6. One baptism 7. One God and Father Here they are alphabetically under a black light - what? Just kidding. Let's start with the one body. It's something all Christians are baptized into. 1Co 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. It is the church. Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Eph 1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. Christ is the head of it. Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. It is not to be divided. 1Co 12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. What thoughts do you have?
