“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)
I’ve been listening to a lot of sermons against “polarization” in the church.
Specifically, about tension that has, supposedly, been created in the church by strong opinions held by Christians. Which range from views on social, political, and even spiritual matters.
Many leaders are warning their people against those whose opinions could be controversial, “divisive”, or which might cause “disunity” in the body of Christ.
However, how, in this world, can a Christan who is zealous for the Lord and for His truth be anything but polarizing?
Especially since the word of God supernaturally “separates” Truth from Error. By creating a separation, even within the church, that is rarely pretty.
A separation which the Lord Himself designed His words to bring about.
