There Must Be Divisions

For it must be that there are sects also among you, that those also who are qualified may be becoming apparent among you (I Corinthians 11:19, CV).

There are many sects, parties and factions within Christendom. There always have been, there always will be.

Note Paul’s words well – these divisions are important. He says it “must be” so. They are necessary to serve the divine purpose. They identify the qualified and, of necessity, also the unqualified.

Division by division, one after another, there are those who are being separated out from Christendom, and those who are returning to it. May God strengthen the former for their lonely battles, and may God grant the latter repentance to the realization of the truth (II Timothy 2:26).
