Quote of the Day

Be eager to be firmly established in the doctrines of the Lord and of the Apostles...be submissive to the Bishop as Jesus Christ was to the Father, and the Apostles to Christ...that there may be unity...All who belong to God and Jesus Christ are with the bishop; and all who repent of schism and come into the unity of the Church will also belong to God that they may be living according to Jesus Christ.

St. Ignatius of Antioch

Gee whiz! Some things never change. Interesting (and perhaps comforting) to see they had the same problems back then, too.

Read (I'm sure this isn't all):

2 Corinthians 12:19-21 and 13:1-10
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
3 John 9-10

... looks like the problem goes back even further.

shariys, you a perfectly correct. I was simply responding to Jeffrey' Ignatian quote.
