Re: Lack of harmony within the church
The church has been set up to please people, and the world, and the government. Because of this, people who do not wish to be disciples come in, and the church then wants to please them because they need their money.
Sounds like the times in the OT when the prophets would cry out against Israel and her sins, and judgment was imminent. We are in such times as these. If God cut off Israel according to the law, the chosen people, we should not think he will spare us if we do not bear the fruit he called his people to bear.
We have dire need of leaving behind all these traditions of men, big buildings, one man speaking at the front, etc, and come back to the apostolic way.
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Cor. 3:18)
Earnestly contending for the faith which was once for all delivered unto the saints
