When unity is wrong
Acts 18:12 While Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews of Corinth made a united attack on Paul and brought him to the place of judgment.
As I write this morning I am thinking of a situation recently that was similar to this verse. A group of people united in their campaign against their fellow colleagues with wagging fingers and cursed tongues. This year I have heard so many of these stories. My sadness is because these stories are of the Church.
Dwelling in unity.
Moving forward in battle.
Carrying a shared purpose.
Seekers of justice.
They were so right.
But they were so wrong.
Be careful who you agree with and who you are against.
Unity is no sign that God is blessing.
What campaign are you supporting?
Is anyone going to get hurt?
Friends with issues will do you no good.
You are not the judge.
