Community of Faith

All our lives now intertwine
And mesh to form a living whole
As thoroughly as densest vine...
United down to very soul.

So, do not dare to even start
Gossip, slander or a hated lie
That would split the whole apart.
You must hold your brothers high.

...So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
--Romans 12:5 ESV

...that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
--1 Corinthians 12:25 ESV

Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
--Ephesians 4:25 ESV

While the scripture is clear there is to be separation from deliberate false teaching, conflict is the result of pride, and most divisions have nothing to do with false doctrine but about personal choices.

Great point.
