Is the body of Christ "built together" or "fallen apart"?

This is how the body of Christ looks to the world . . .

This is Jesus' prayer for all Christians in John 17:20-23: "I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You. May they also be in Us so that the world may believe that You have sent me. I have given them the glory that You gave me, that they may be one as we are One— I in them and You in Me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent Me and have loved them even as you have loved Me."

And this is how Paul described us in Ephesians 2:21-22: "In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit."

Christians, like Legos (and other building blocks) are designed to interact with one another, mutually support each other, and be built together in Jesus as one interconnected, organic body of Christ (beyond our human divisions and tribes and colors). Will we?
