There is little doubt that the followers of Christ are not united. They are fractured into so many different parts that it would not be surprising to find the symbol of a cross next to the definition of disunity in Webster’s dictionary. The followers of Christ are the poster children for what it means to be divided. And this is in direct contradiction of what Jesus prayed in the upper room on the night he was betrayed.
But why are His followers so divided? There are many reasons. Over the next few weeks I will be discussing some of the different reasons in greater detail.
Here is the first: the quest for doctrinal purity.
We’ll talk more on Saturday.
