Thanks, John, for a short and sweet post on a bitter subject: sectarianism, tribalism, elitism, or a barricade mentality in the church. Would it be fair to say that sectarianism arose when the Christians in Corinth decided to follow their preferred leader, be it Cephas, Apollos, Paul, or even Chirst (1 Cor 1:12)? When I posed a question, "Why do we have divisions (in the church)?" (http://www.ubfriends.org/2010/11/why-do-we-have-divisions/) it seemed that sectarianism arises when the Christian leader acts like a boss, rather than a servant, and when he pushes/imposes his preferred ministry model or method or doctrine, rather than proclaim the glorious mysteries of God--the gospel (1 Cor 4:1).
