Unity and Division: The Blessing and a Curse (Part Two)
A curious phenomenon ties together several well-known, biblical stories: God makes a judgment and divides His people into two groups, sometimes splitting them right down the middle! Noticing these divinely ordained separations, Charles Whitaker probes the various stories to show that God uses the act of division to reconfigure His people along lines we often do not expect.
 

Unity and Division: The Blessing and the Curse (Part Five)
Most of the twelve curses recited by the tribes of Israel on Mount Ebal contain a common theme: They focus on secret sins, hypocrisies. In closing his series, Charles Whitaker emphasizes that our Savior desires our total commitment to the truth and to Him, and unless they repent, hypocrites will find themselves among those to whom Christ will say, "I never knew you."
 

Unity and Division: The Blessing and the Curse (Part Four)
During the wilderness trek of the children of Israel, God commanded the people to utter blessings from Mount Gerazim and curses from Mount Ebal after they entered the Promised Land. Charles Whitaker comments on the twelve curses, most of which deal with, not obvious sins, but more hidden ones that give rise to hypocrisy among those who claim to follow God.
 

Unity and Division: The Blessing and the Curse (Part One)
Those who read the Bible regularly come to realize that it speaks a great deal about the opposing subjects of unity and division. Unity seems to be "godly," while division is "ungodly." However, Charles Whitaker cautions that, while they are irreconcilable conditions, unity and division are not as black and white as we typically think of them.
 

Unity and Division: The Blessing and the Curse (Part Three)
The Bible contains many examples of division and even several that God Himself brought about as a result of His judgments. Charles Whitaker focuses on an Old Testament example of this, when God instructed the Israelites to divide themselves by tribes on Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal to pronounce blessings and curses. This ancient division provides several lessons that can be applied to the church of God.
 

Unity and Personal Responsibility
The most prestigious international organization dedicated to peace on earth is the United Nations, but such a name can be true only in the most vaguely hopeful way. Nations and the people who comprise them are tragically disunited. John Ritenbaugh shows what we must do, personally and individually, when calamitous events—in the world and in the church—are taking place.
