Editor’s Note: An excellent article by Mr. Armstrong reminding us what liberalism is and what it can do to our organizations.
Jesus Christ says a house divided against itself cannot stand! A few “liberal” ministers have caused “division and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned.” God’s House has been divided. But NO LONGER!
GOD SAYS to His Church, through the apostle Paul, “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (I Corinthians 1:10).
This passage continues saying the church at Corinth, precisely like today’s Church of God, was following various and differing men with differing doctrines. They, like many today, were forgetting that the HEAD of the Church is Jesus Christ — that Christ is ALIVE today! That HE really is leading us!
Satan has been striking at God’s Church and Work from within and from without! And as in the Ephesian church, where Paul said “… of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them” (Acts 20:30).
What happened in those churches in the first century has happened to us today. Those guilty of causing division are fighting God and shall be judged by Him!
