My dear brothers and sisters, I have a serious concern I need to bring up with you, for I have been informed by those of Chloe’s house church that you have been destructively arguing among yourselves. And I need to bring this up because each of you is claiming loyalty to different preachers.
Some are saying, “I am a disciple of Paul,” or, “I follow Apollos,” or, “I am a disciple of Peter the Rock,” and some, “I belong only to Christ.” But let me ask you, is Christ divided up into groups? Did I die on the cross for you? At your baptism did you pledge yourselves to follow Paul?”

‭‭- PAUL (1 CORINTHIANS‬ ‭1:11-13‬ ‭TPT‬‬)

Where do we draw the line between loyalty to our denominations and cutting up the body of Christ?

When we study the word of God, are we truly open to hearing the truth, God’s truth. Or does the voice of God get drowned out by the voice of our denominational doctrines?

If we say we hear the Father, why then do we have dissensions? Does the Father say one thing to one and say something else to another? 

Can we really say that our undying loyalties lie with the One who has died for us or do we often find ourselves living life to please man whose breath is in his nostrils? 

Are we not all children of One Father? Are we not commanded to have love for one another? Are we still brethren?

Have a blessed week.
