For weeks I have been on this site in the discussions and I have seen nothing short of division amongst the Body of Christ. There has been bickering, personal attacks, judgmental statements, accusations, slander and then some. I was in a discussion where I was seeking TRUTH on something that I was taught by an individual whom in my adult life I learned was a false Prophet. Rather than receiving what I was searching for amongst the Saints, all I saw was all of the forementioned...DRAMA! It saddens me and is literally breaking my heart to see such division amongst God's people. Not just God's people, but the "Called out ones"!
We will not always agree on everything and that includes,
but is not limited to, THE WORD OF GOD!
I don't understand why it is such a task to agree to disagree and move on.
I don't understand why it is such a difficult task to show respect to one another regardless of wisdom, knowledge, understanding or the lack thereof. I don't understand why we are so judgmental and so quick to accuse our co-laborers in the word of sins we have NO proof they even commit or have committed in the past. The last time I checked, ALL versions of the Bible tells us to "Judge not".
Think to yourself for a moment: If you were a babe in Christ, new to this site or seeking God through this network, would you or would you not be turned away by this type of behavior?
Are we to NOT respect each other because of "Titles"?
Are we to NOT respect each other because of "Age"?
Are we to NOT respect each other because of the length of time we've been in the Ministry is longer than others?
Should we respect everyone REGARDLESS?
Are we TRULY showing each other AGAPE LOVE?
I do know this: JESUS' message was LOVE and still is.
Where did the love go amongst the Body of Christ?
Why are we doing battle with each other instead of with the enemy that is causing all of this confusion?
Would God be pleased with some of things you've said to your co-laborers on this site?
Is this how Jesus instructed us to treat each other?
1) Who are you?
2) Why are you here?
3) What is your purpose?
If GOD isn't included in all THREE responses to those questions....WAKE UP!
Peace be with you and I pray UNITY finds us all.
