I Hear There Be Divisions Among You….

June 3, 2010

 

I’m going
Sola Scriptura
on this one… My opinion does not, and will not, factor into this post. The word of God alone will speak to this and we the body of Christ will pray, period!

1 Cor. 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1Cor. 3:3 “ For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions are ye not carnal, and walk as men?”

1 Cor. 11:17-18 “Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.”

Rom. 12:16 “Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.”

Phil. 1:27 “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”

1 Pet. 4:17 “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?”

A little Joke……

John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church, tells of a dream that he once had in which he was transported to the gates of hell. He stood there and called out:

“Are there any Roman Catholics here?”

“Yes,” came the reply.

“Are there any Presbyterians?”

“Yes,” was the answer.

“Any Congregationalists?”

“Yes.”

“Are there any Methodists here?”

“Yes,” came the reply.

As Wesley thought on this last answer, he was suddenly transported to the gates of heaven. Once again, he called out:

“Are there any Roman Catholics here?”

“No,” came the reply.

“Are there any Presbyterians?”

“No,” was the answer.

“Any Congregationalists?”

“No.”

“Are there any Methodists here?”

“No,” came the reply.

Puzzled, he asked, “Well then, who is here?”

The answer came back, “Christians.”

There is coming a day when all of the party denominations and separations will be done away. One of these days we will see Jesus and then everything else will come to be unimportant by comparison.

Hey folks that wasn’t my opinion it was totally someone else’s….
