3. You are "critical" of other Christians. I mean, didn't Jesus make it clear that there will be those who don't do ministry the same as others, but not to worry, the message still points to the cross! In Mark 9:38, Jesus' disciples were offended at the fact that there were others who were casting out demons in Jesus' name, but were not a part of the clique! I'm reminded of hearing one of these "mean" pastors who said to his congregation that whoever criticizes his ministry will lose rewards in Heaven! And what is so humorous about this story is that these same leaders were life-long experts at criticizing other ministries! Friends, this kind of critical spirit only brings division into the body of Christ and God says in Proverbs 6:19 that among the seven things He hates is a man or woman who brings strife into the church. Don't be this kind of a leader!
