FACTIONS & CONTRADICTIONS. I love this quote by Paul S. Rees:

“I will go to my grave convinced that the church—the visible community of Christian faith and fellowship—needs to exhibit a unity that is perilously contradicted by the exclusive, self-defensive, and often warring divisions into which we have fractured and factioned ourselves. With time’s passing I am less and less impressed by our attempts to justify this rabbit-warren proliferation of our sects and subdivisions. Concurrently, I am increasingly struck by the flimsiness of our arguments for going on as we are.”
