(1 Cor 1:10) says “Now I beseech you brethren by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”
What the Apostle Paul was telling the Church at Corinth was that they needed to operate in Godly unity. In fact, to take it a step further the unity was to be so perfect that the Church at Corinth needed to hear one voice. And that’s really how the local church should operate today; there should be one voice speaking throughout the ministry. When I say one voice, I mean regardless of how many pastors or ministers or elders you have they should all be saying what the senior leader is saying, as long as the senior leader is speaking from the word of God.
It may not be expressed the same way or even shared the same way but the interpretation the local congregation should walk away with is it sounds as if the ministry staff is on the same page. Thus, we should speak the same thing to the degree that we are perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. Thus, to be perfectly joined together is to let nothing or no one come between us. It’s to let nothing divide and conquer what God desires to do in the local church through his leadership.
If we allow nothing or no one to divide us regardless of what comes our way, (because the Devil will make sure your unity is tried), then we can say that we in the local church are perfectly joined together. Thus, you can tell whether or not there is one voice based on what the rest of the leadership is saying and if we are going to have perfect unity we need multiple levels of leadership saying the same thing.
God Bless You
