Go back and re-read my post, my friend. I never claimed strife was biblical. However, I did state that church's have strife and just because churches have strife, that doesn't make the church itself an unbiblical thing just because some people are misbehaving. Chad made great points about this in his post. Every church has some strife. Almost every single epistle Paul wrote comments on strife each church has. So do we throw out the church? Not at all.

Grace & peace to you, Thaddaeus.
