Meyer, upon this passage, says that the elements of church unity are: (1) The church itself constituted as a unity: One Body, one Spirit, one Blessed Hope. (2) The means by which this united church is built up: One Lord, one Faith, one Baptism. (3) Over all one Supreme Ruler, the God and Father of all. Bishop Pearson, on the creed, notes "Points of Unity of the Church". He enumerates, (1) Unity of the Head; (2) Unity of the Spirit dwelling in it; (3) Unity of hope; (4) Unity of faith; (5) Unity of ordinance for admission; (6) Unity of the one Father; (7) Unity or organization, one Body.

  • MockingBird for verse 6
    I Believe that this word is self explainitory. One God and Father of all , who above all , and through all , and in all of us : That are born again : God is not the Father of the people that know not God.
  • P.Hunter for verse 6
    The scriptue was originally part of a letter written by the Apostle Paul to the church at Ephesis. He was letting them know that God
    is not tripartite, triple headed being or entity with multiple bodies (as some ancients represented their chief gods in triple form. The God of the universe stands as God alone and is Father or creator of us all. When Paul noted that God was "in all," he was addressing those who were a part of the church (who had received God's spirit), and because of this, they were being reminded that God was in all of them and that their very existence was dependent on God.
