Brotherhood. What does this mean to you? Here's what says:


          1.     the condition or quality of being a brother or brothers.
          2.     the quality of being brotherly; fellowship.
          3.     a fraternal or trade organization.
          4.     all those engaged in a particular trade or profession or sharing a common
                  interest or quality.
          5.     the belief that all people should act with warmth and equality toward one
                  another, regardless of  differences in race, creed, nationality, etc.

 Why is it that 'Brotherhood' is accepted by trade unions and business organizations but the body of Christ centres its attentions on divisions and differences?

I was talking with some people that I am proud to call my 'brothers'. All of us had stories about the way we had been mistreated and ostracised by the various churches and Christian organizations we have been involved with. This should not be so! Where is the warmth and equality mentioned in definition 5 above? Churches and their organizations are the biggest obstacles we face in our walk as true believers in Christ. This shouldn't come as a surprise because Jesus himself had more trouble with the churches than the sinners. Indeed, it was the 'church' that eventually had Him put to death!

"God save us from the churches and religious people and Thank You for the BROTHERHOOD of true believers, and Thank You that I am counted among them, amen"
