My answer to discussion question #1 Part 7

Being right, even when we are wrong can be more important to us than being right with God and being united with our fellow Christians.  We can be too proud to admit it when we are acting selfishly, in pride, and in a fleshly way.  Also, we fear being rejected if we admit our sins.  So, we can put on a mask of perfection in the presence of our fellow Christians.  In other words, it is very human for us not to own up and admit our sins to others.

My answer to the discussion question Part 6

We are to seek after experiencing the unity that we already have (Eph. 4:2-6).  That unity can only be experienced when we who are Christians voluntarily seek to be all we already are in Christ.  It cannot be forced on us.
