    The only item that Scripture expressly forbids is speaking in tongues without interpretation.

    SaggyWoman, I think the following motto (borrowed from your personal collections) can be highly divisive.....

    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    P.S. I got this recently from one of my retired friend from the greater Chicago area. Strangely resembling the one you use for your email signature. :type:

    We should stand for sound doctrine. If someone else finds that contentious, then so be it.

    You know, Barnabas, you are right! Most of my friends tolerate the message and the world changers appreciate the message.

    You're kidding right?? A source of division is how long someone's hair is?? Or, the way that communion is served??
