Christianity was never meant to exude unity, for the truth behind Christianity lies in the very lack of said unity within the religion. God gave over the teachings of Jesus to those gentiles who were well known for (and who still practice) self-glorification, which of course in itself leads to a complete lack of unity. Thus the truth of the teachings and scripture about unity that is in the charge of these gentiles, stands out in contrast to who they themselves are. Hypocrisy serves God's purpose, at least to those who see it, rather than defend it.
It is interesting how people will complain about the efforts Christianity has made to indoctrinate others in the world, others whom as a result have turned out to be a rather civilized and educated segment of that world. Yet no one complains about the indoctrination that is taking place in the world today on a secular level. Indoctrination to bring in a new age of domination and control over people never before seen on a global scale.
Perhaps the fact that the secular world seems to be accomplishing world domination where the church could not, is seen as a point of pride and vanity to those who resent the church. Man finally wins out over religion, ironically not even noticing we have a new god and master, and unlike Christianity, where free will will not be condoned.
