Can’t we all just get along for Christ’s sake? Uhhhh, apparently not

Nothing makes Jesus look good quite like a good old fist fight in his name.  Especially when that fist fight takes place inside a church.  Especially when that fist fight inside a church is between clergy members.  Especially when that fist fight inside a church between clergy members is at the Jerusalem church celebrated as Jesus’ own burial place.  Especially when that fist fight inside a church between clergy members inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre takes place on the Orthodox Palm Sunday.  But hey, apparently this isn’t anything new.  The BBC reports that, “Brawls are not uncommon at the church, which is uneasily shared by various Christian denominations.”

Did someone not get the memo?

That story just reminded me again of what I learned in my NT 2 class in Romans. How because we have died with Christ and buried in Christ and risen with Christ, there is no distinction and that there is supposed to be unity in the Church and not division.

1Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [plural] a living and holy sacrifice [singular], acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. (Romans 12:1 NASB)
