Let's face it, there is alot of contention within the body of Christ. Unfortunately, there are churches even within our esteemed denomination who will have nothing to do with the other. I have seen pastors give other pastors the cold shoulder, one congregation not speak to another in the same city. However, with these same pepole you they go on in worship and service as if nothing has happened. Why is this so? Is it leadership? Is it the enemy? or is it just something that we must accept-seeing that offences will come. How does it affect the spirtuality of the Church, and the effectivness of its witness when the non-churched are aware of, and hear about, the "broken bones" or "organ failure" within the body of Christ?
