Church Feuds

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Church feuds are not uncommon, especially among cliques in the congregation. But when the pastor and choir director get into it, stand aside.

One week our preacher preached on commitment, and how we should dedicate ourselves to service. The director then led the choir in singing, 'I Shall Not Be Moved.'

The next Sunday, the preacher preached on giving and how we should gladly give to the work of the Lord. The choir director then led the song, 'Jesus Paid It All.'

The next Sunday, the preacher preached on gossiping and how we should watch our tongues. The hymn was 'I Love To Tell The Story.'

The preacher became disgusted over the situation, and the next Sunday he told the congregation he was considering resigning. The choir then sang 'Oh, Why Not Tonight.'

When the preacher resigned the next week, he told the church that Jesus had led him there and Jesus was taking him away. The choir then sang, 'What A Friend We Have in Jesus.'

    A lot of people don't know we are to honor and respect those who have authority over us. I know it is a joke though

  You would think as Christians we would get along better and work our problems out among ourselves.

    I've heard this before. It's a good thing it's only a joke, but sometimes there is animosity in the church and churches break up because of it. There is a church around the corner from me that that happened to. Some of the members stayed where they were and others went down the street and started a new church. I don't know how many years ago that was, but I've been here for 15 years and they started before that. The church is not growing and never will because of the bitter people that started it. Thanks for sharing.
