Avoid foolish controversies, arguments about genealogies, quarrels, and fights about Moses’ Teachings. This is useless and worthless. Have nothing to do with people who continue to teach false doctrine after you have warned them once or twice. You know that people like this are corrupt. They are sinners condemned by their own actions.
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Wisdom is proved right by her actions.
There is a way that seems right to a person, but the end is only death.
What causes controversy, factions, and divisions in the Body of Christ?
Isn’t it the mind set on the flesh?
Arrogance demands one assert their own opinion.
That’s not God’s way.
We are to be of one mind, the mind of Christ.
We are united with God in Christ in One Body.
No one has ever hated their own flesh.
But they nourish and take care of it.
God’s family is the Church of the Living God.
There are no divisions.
We are one.
A United Kingdom.
We are united in Christ.
How will we be known?
How will we be recognized?
How will we be distinguished from the world?
By our love.
There is no room for pride at the table of the Lord.
Rightly recognize the Body that was broken and the blood which was shed and poured out for all.
We’re nothing but dust and ashes without the Spirit of the Lord.
God uses us in spite of us.
He takes the broken and rejected and exalts them for His glory.
The ones the world approves of are worthless.
The Kingdom is coming, has come, and will continue to come until the day of the Lord.
One soul at a time.
Submitted to Christ as King.
We have not even scratched the surface yet.
We are dirt and soil.
Uncover the buried treasure.
The glory of the Lord hidden in earthen vessels.
Come what may, we serve our God and King.
Especially, when we serve the lost, the broken, and the least of these.
When did we see you hungry, thirsty, naked, homeless, sick or in prison?
When you did it for one of these, you did it unto Me.
There is no greater glory than serving God with a pure heart, united with Christ in love and peace.
Beware of those who teach false doctrine.
Beware of those who exalt themselves.
Beware of the enemy of our souls, lurking in our churches, under the guise of religion, causing division and enslaving the naive.
There is one Body, one faith, one Lord.
What are all these denominations?
They each represent someone who failed.
Someone who failed to be a peacemaker.
God is restoring His Body to the unity of the faith.
Watch empty, man-made religion crumble back into the dust.
Wait for the Lord.
He will fill you with power.
Wait for the Lord.
He will come when you least expect it.
Wait for the Lord.
And obey His every command.
Tune your ear to His Spirit.
Hear what He is saying to His Church.
Prepare the Bride.
Let Her be without spot or wrinkle.
Let love save the day.
Lord, forgive us, for we know not what we do.
Let us be of one mind and one heart with You.
Help us to see our brothers and sisters as ourselves.
Help us to build one another up in love and sincerity of heart.
Let us be one Body, animated by Your Spirit.
Let us be Your children again, O Heavenly Father.
We love You, Lord.
Let Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
