Randburg Baptist Church is proud to launch our newly redesigned website, www.randburgbaptist.com. We have redesigned it with you in mind, streamlining menus, simplifying navigation.
We need to guard – and guard diligently – against sins that we commit (you and I) that cause damage to unity in the church of Jesus Christ.
Sometimes it is the explosive action or comment – the hand-grenade that rips apart!
More commonly it is the slow-release poison that erodes and contaminates and sows mistrust and brews bitterness… Slow brewed, extra matured… but it is a deadly cocktail that trashes harmony and destroys our witness to the world!
Proverbs 6 takes us there this morning… God – even in the Old Testament covenant people context – shows us the danger of discord. He gives us a DESCRIPTION of a person who causes disunity, plus he also warns us of the danger that such a person is in. I want to spend a chunk of time of exploring what we do with that in 2019… DIAGNOSING discord in churches…
