STRAIGHT TALK FROM THE BIBLE:

PEACE WITH GOD

PEACE:"All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out. Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Therefore ... we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, Be ye reconciled to God."
Romans 3:23, Jeremiah 17:9, Acts 3:19, Luke 13:3, Romans 6:23, I John 1:7, Romans 5:8-9, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 5:1, 2Corinthians5:20.

"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15).

"The words of the Lord are pure words:...thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law. Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."
Psalm 12:6,7, Psalm 119:126, Psalm 119:128, Isaiah 8:20 in the KJV.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."John 3:16

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
"We love him, because he first loved us."..

- Romans 5:8 & 1 John 4:19

UNITY

UNITY AT THE COST OF TRUTH IS TREASON:
C.H. Spurgeon--
On all hands we hear cries for unity in this and unity in that; but in our mind the main need of this age is not compromise but conscientiousness, 'First pure, then peaceable.' It is easy to cry 'A confederacy,' but that union that is not based on the truth of God is rather a conspiracy than a communion. Charity by all means: but honesty also. Love of course, but love to God as well as love to men, and love of truth as well as love of union. It is exceedingly difficult in these times to preserve one's fidelity before God and one's fraternity among men. Should not the former be preferred to the latter if both cannot be maintained? We think so (The Sword and Trowel, April 1887, p. 196, as cited in C.H. Spurgeon and the Modern Church , by R.J. Sheehan, p. 22).
J.N. Darby--
Separation from evil is the necessary first principle of communion with Him ... Separation from evil is His principle of unity Separation of Evil: God's Principle of Unity , as cited in Biblical Separation, by Ernest Pickering, p. 116).

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."
