Church Conflict

Things are good at the moment at Bedford in terms of conflict, but as we are dealing with new beginnings in January, we are touching on this passage from Philippians….

2 Now I appeal to Euodia and Syntyche. Please, because you belong to the Lord, settle your disagreement. 3 And I ask you, my true partner,[b] to help these two women, for they worked hard with me in telling others the Good News. They worked along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are written in the Book of Life.

95% of church conflict is not over issues, but personalities. This is no excuse, but is the reason. Paul here calls these two women to get their act together.
The cause of Jesus Christ is too important to let conflict get in its way.

  1. I’m betting that this letter was read out aloud to the gathered assembly at Philippi …. wonder how those women felt then – named by the Apostle Paul during the meeting? Also their two names forever etched in God’s written Word, wonder how Eudia and Syntyche feel about that as well?

    Mark R
