It was not started by someone who is "in the body of Christ"


We are responsible for how we act, and it seems to me, how others view us is directly related to how we act towards them and how other christians have acted towards them in the past ...... if we as christians are divided and are not loving to each, what does that tell others of us ... if when they criticize us and we rail at them what does that tell them about us ....

This is a place where we can express our different beliefs but where it goes over the line is when we accuse each other of not being christian, or saved, etc We are Jesus witnesses not in word ONLY but in DEED

Insane, may have started this to get us riled up, that is his business but how we react is up to us..........

I think you have it right, meerkat2. When somebody outside the body is taunting or whatever, there is no need to become offended. Show your fruit instead..

It is hard to do when I'm tired, but I try and stay off of here when I'm feeling too worn out.

There are all these different types of Christians, yet they/we are all Christians. Personally I think the diversity within Christianity is one of its greatest strengths.

But moving in unison would indicate one mind...

I don't mind disagreement....but I can't quite follow where you are going with that (Moderator cut: edit I'm an engineer, not a philosopher...) Do you mind explaining a bit more?

Perhaps the real question "Christians" should be asking themselves and searching for the answer to is why this book/faith causes so much disunity and division?
