When I was serving as the interim preacher [not pastor] and a fellow came to “Preach to the Call” as they say. His topic was “The three “isms” destroying America” . He listed Humanism, Communism, and Homosexualism. Seriously, he did. The church called him. See how eager to be rid of me they were?
I think of that now as I am sick of “ism’s”.
Calvinism, Arminianism, Evangelicalism, Fundamentalism, Methodism, Catholicism’ Monergism,Protestantism, is-ism , and Isn’t-ism. You get the point.
We will have to answer for a lot of this.
|1Cr 11:19||For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you.|
|Gal 5:20||idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,|
I know we have to be doctrinally pure to the best of our ability, but factions are not promoted by scripture either. This Christmas would it not please God to remember what we have in common with The body instead of picking each other a part. When we are all ready to get together let’s just believe as I do, then there will be no more factions. Or maybe that attitude is the problem? You tell me.
