When famous works of art like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa are studied with a view of restoring their original beauty,-the more closely they are examined the more evident is the genius of the artist. Today our aim is to unveil the divine genius in the design of first century Christianity and to show the foliy of attempts to improve upon or change this perfect creation of almighty God.
The chief aim of restoring the original church oftthe first century was to bring about unity in the world of religion on a purely Biblical basis. The unity of Christians is often mentioned in the Bible: there is a plea for unity (I Cor 1:10); a prayer for unity (John 17:21-22); a plan for unity (Eph 4:4-6); and an example of unity (Ac 2:43; 4:32). “The church of Christ is essentially, intentionally and constitutionally one, consisting of all those who profess faith in Christ and obedience in all things according to the Scriptures” (Thomas Campbell, 1809). This memorable statement also defines who are and who are not Christians. Division among Christians is “a horrid evil.”
