It's great how we find commonality and ways to connect with a wider population who are like-minded. It feels good to fit "in". So, we go all in. But do we have the same connection with the the body of Christ? The same pride of ownership?
We covet pride, ego and self-interests above what is Holy and well for the church body. We take a stand for our purposes, what we demand as our rights, our requirements; leaving the core essence of the church mission in the dust.
