Letter to the Editor: Church divisions do not adhere to Bible teaching

Tuesday, January 27, 2004

To the editor:

We all disagree. This is what has caused all the divisions in Jesus' church.The Bible cannot be more clear.

Romans 16:17: "Avoid those who cause divisions among you." I Corinthians 1:10: "I urge that there be no divisions among you."

Many claim there is an invisible unity because we all believe in Jesus. Wrong. Jesus did not establish an invisible church.

Are we really one as the Bible teaches? The Bible says that when Jesus comes back, he will come back to a church "without blemish." All the divisions within his church are a blemish, and Jesus will reunite us in his time and before his return, despite anyone who does not wish to do his will.
