These kind of pharisaic manipulations can be very damaging to the well being of a church. No wonder so many people have become disillusioned with churches today! They simply find no credibility in a group of people who are caught up in this superficial nonsense - especially when they deal with it on a regular basis everywhere else, in addition to church, throughout the week."
- Hobbes -
"If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious ... discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy ... those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God"
- Galatians 5:15,19-21.
