Yes, Ahmad, I get your point.

My point is that the sincere unite in one column but it's a unity in SPIRIT and ATTITUDE, not in material institutions, supported by God. There can exist unity without it being visible or measurable.

As for the other quote; exactly. It says "you shall not ABUSE such knowledge."
An important detail in my opinion.
