"By the unity of God we mean that there is but one God and that the
divine nature is undivided and indivisible.
(Thiessen, Henry C.; "LECTURES IN SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY"; Grand
Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1949, p 134)
Why won't we ever have this unity? We are only one. God
is three and we speak of His unity in relation to this. We being only one cannot
have unity. Ex. 20:3_7, tells of the commands against idols. It does not stress
unity in word, however if these verses were followed there would be a worship of
one God _ a unity. (See also Deut. 4:35 35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou
mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.)
The unity of God lends credibility to the purpose of God. There is "one
purpose, one mind, one goal for all things." (Buswell, James Oliver;
"A SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION"; Grand Rapids:
Zondervan, 1962, p 103)

them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the

The Spirit is God: Acts 5:3,4  But Peter said, Ananias, why
hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and
to keep back part of the price of the land?  Whiles it
remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not
in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine
heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
