What Does it Mean to be Like-Minded? A Commentary on Philippians 2:2

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. - Philippians 2:1-5


What does it mean to agree wholeheartedly with one another?


After reading this earlier this week, I have been pondering this perplexing statement. What does it mean for Christians to agree wholeheartedly with each other? Is Paul telling the church to completely abandon our opinions and beliefs and just agree with everyone who claims they are a Christian?


Not at all. Rather, he was telling us to be "like-minded."
