"them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned".
One issue of doctrine we might consider here is who are, "...those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
*And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
*For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: *That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another." 1 Corinthians 12:22-25
So PuG; which do you believe AJ represents; a divisive offender, or an "uncomely part" of the body of Christ? Why should willingness to pursue an elected office be the only measure of effectiveness in the political arena? Should the number of neo-cons "offended" be allowed to set the standard for sound doctrine? How about reconsidering the worth of, "that which is highly esteemed among men"?
"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
*And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
*And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:13-15
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
