Factions in the celestial church today
A faction refers to group of people, especially within an organization, which expresses a shared belief or opinion different from people who are not part of the group.
Factions within celestial fold came and began to spring up due to disagreements that arose in the leadership transitions since the demise of the pastor founder.
Factions were birthed on the discord regards to whom the pastor should be and other critical issues which were led unattended to and resolved…
Celestial as a church and a fold remains an indivisible entity crafted by God.
It is the same as one….when one is divided by one, it still remains one….1/1 = 1
The resulting factions of the leadership fracas only share disagreement in the aspect of leadership, headship and administration of the church
The factions over the years have not profited or benefited the church anything but more resulting fractions and endless confusion.
The call for unity has experienced tremendous failure because the interest and will of God is not always put first
This is where devil has played his role to ensure the church does not unite.
All factional parties always want to have their interest first.
There is need for a change of mindset towards faction for as far as the celestial church of Christ exist, it is one.
Each faction has an opinion of its own that the other disagrees with.
But despite this they all have a similitude and bridging point that they fail to merge.
The heights of this factions has risen to an extent that they compete for membership, loyalty and followers, worshippers within the same family and body of Christ.
The members whom are yet to come to true understanding begin to fight the battle of the factions, upholding one over the other, forgetting that they are all one family.
The members are the coconut heads they use to break the battle of factions and mostly this is channelled into the stronger arm of the church which are largely youths to keep a factional mentality.
Such that someone from faction AB sees someone from faction A as an enemy of the church
In the eyes of God and in the spirit, all this factions does not exist because celestial is one.
Factions are basically men mechanisms, birthed solely on their interest, irrelevant in the sight of God and in the spirit.
Factions are dividing bridges that disconnect the church from its purpose and mission, weakening its collective strength and focus
So many irregularities and shameful things happening in the church are largely a result of this factions and self declaring pastors that have come in the rise.
God is not a respecter or lover of factions and he knows that factions are results of men’s selfish actions.
It is time we rise beyond this meaningless factions that has divided the church and resolve the issues that has crippled its growth and rendered it stagnant.
The aftermath of the factions has nothing positive to show over the years.
“If factions continue to exist, it is simply because of inaction to unite”
