A House that is divided against itself cannot stand
A very popular prayer is the Lord's prayer
Our Father Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven;
Do you agree that a kingdom that fight against itself will be eventually ruined
any two persons or even animals for that matter that are battling against one another defeats their own purpose;
It is dangerous to call evil good and good evil....
And it's not too late to repent
Example-Matthew 12:22
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
Matt 12:25 (KJV)
JESUS HEALS A DEMONIAC. (Matthew12:22-30)
A soul under Satan's power, and led captive by him, is blind in the things of God, and dumb at the throne of grace; sees nothing, and says nothing to the purpose. Satan blinds the eyes by unbelief, and seals up the lips from prayer. The more people magnified Christ, the more desirous the Pharisees were to vilify him. It was evident that if Satan aided Jesus in casting out devils, the kingdom of hell was divided against itself; how then could it stand! And if they said that Jesus cast out devils by the prince of the devils, they could not prove that their children cast them out by any other power. There are two great interests in the world; and when unclean spirits are cast out by the Holy Spirit, in the conversion of sinners to a life of faith and obedience, the kingdom of God is come unto us. All who do not aid or rejoice in such a change are against Christ.
—Matthew Henry Concise

My point is
I read a thread earlier
All of the bickering the poster (can't remember whom) noticed recently
And any of us can get caught up in the flesh, and end up in this state-( results in a of lack of self control)
especially when we haven't spent a great deal of time personally in constant
fellowship with God, whether it may be prayer or praise,
This is a sin, God is not the author of confusion;
Since we acknowledge that we know who is,
we should act accordingly;
It's not that big of a deal to be the one that's right
It's important that some restless, hurting and feeling hopeless soul, that happen to click on this forum see the
Christ that we claim to serve, with our whole heart..
Their very existence depend on this and this alone
What do you think ?
What will be most important at the end of the day?
Being right or being light?
God Bless You All

Oh yes, it will fall if they don't line up with each other. I agree.

The "house" needs to line up to the head not each other - if the blind lead the blind both will fall in the ditch - there is only ONE teacher.

Betsey,

The head is God, he has sent his Spirit to guide, any other teacher will not do. We are to line up with God.

Ahem........
This is what the post is all about
It may just be a thing of perception
I didn't read Betsey Lane's post to read anything more than referencing the OP;
IOW I understood her to agree that we must have unity , as those belonging to Christ, on one accord...
because a divided house truly cannot stand....
If I perceived this to be the case;
Christ being the head is a given... in our case

When I look at christianity in general I see a lot of division and the different factions really believe in their different points of view. It is fine saying repent then you will have the truth - however we have been warned that many will be lead astray and that those that do not have a love of the truth will receive delusion to believe the lie.

Those that have the delusion really really believe they have the truth.

A lot of people are running around trying to convert everyone to christianity because otherwise they are going to burn in hell

So God is not the author of confusion except that the people who say they represent him are corporately in a very confused state with each other.

From what I can see the "house" of "christianity" is divided against itself.

Well you seemed to be convinced that the above is the case
And you are entitled to your belief, as having a "free will"
Then what is your goal right now?
what could you possibly have to gain by viewing threads that you are so strongly opposed to?
If we are all the things that you've listed in your sight;
In Our prayers
Thanks for your reply
God Bless you

I believe I was the one who posted about the intense bickering here lately.

Is christianity divided? you have made the statement that a divided house can not stand.


It does concern me that there is division in christianity and it does concern me that there is division on this forum. Seeking truth and standing for what you believe is true can put you at odds with those who do not believe what you do, are we instructed to go against the truth to side with untruth for the sake of peace? I am seeking the truth and all I want is to know the truth. I like a lot of the people on the CD forum I stay here because I like it and have learnt a lot from people here and it has sparked thoughts that I have followed up with further reading and seeking.
