When God gave His law by Moses to Israel, He made no provision for the division of His people into sects and parties. But by the time Jesus came into the world, sects and parties were well entrenched. There were the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Essenes, and doubtless others. It was assumed that all who were serious about religion would be associated with one of these.
To which of these parties did Jesus belong? All must agree that He belonged to none of them. He maintained His independent, non-sectarian relationship with God to the very end. For this reason, they all opposed Him.
Jesus did not provide for His followers to be divided into sects and parties. Rather, He desired that they might be united. After praying for His apostles, He added:
"I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us." -John 17:20-21
Are YOU religiously FOR (working to be a part of the solution) OR AGAINST (working to be a part of the problem) what Jesus prayed for? How do you worship?
