"So," they say, "nobody's perfect!"
But the Vinedresser won't buy that.
Given the opportunity, He will trim the unproductive suckers and shape the branches so each one will bask in Sonlight.

Oxymoron: Division in God's Church

Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.
(Matthew 12:25 ESV)

Is God's kingdom divided against itself? With even evangelical denominations and congregations suffering rampant, factious bickering, that seems true.
The other possibility is God's kingdom is certainly not divided against itself, relegating the discordant factions of Christendom to the pit, with all the other haters in the world.
