My friend Mark Atteberry wrote a great book entitled, The 10 Dumbest Things Christians Do in which he details 7 types of fallout from disunity in the church.
When there is disunity in the church…
1) The church’s leaders are distracted.
2) Noncombatants are discouraged.
3) The Lord’s work is disrupted.
4) The community’s seekers are disenchanted.
5) Long-held beliefs are disregarded.
6) The congregation’s testimony is discredited.
7) The Lord is dishonored.
