Tillotson: wickedness, then division

Thursday, May 21, 2015
    Feast of Commemoration of Helena, Protector of the Faith, 330
    You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?
    —1 Corinthians 3:3 (NIV)
    Next to the wicked lives of men, nothing is so great a disparagement and weakening to religion, as the divisions of Christians.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. IX, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon CCIX, p. 45 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 3:3; Matt. 12:25; John 17:23; Rom. 15:6; 16:17; 1 Cor. 1:10; 11:18
Quiet time reflection:
    What can I do to heal some division in my church?
