Division at the Cross

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre stands where Jesus is thought to have been crucified and buried. Currently, there are several Christian groups who have control of the Church. There have been many fights between these groups over this Church, sometimes even resulting in violence. It is thought provoking that on the very ground where the greatest act of injustice occurred and the epitome of loving your enemies was displayed, Christians fight each other while bearing His name.

As much as I would like to condemn these Christians for fighting over a piece of land, it is only a tangible display of what happens in the rest of Christianity. Instead of fighting over land, Christians fight over spiritual superiority all in the name of Jesus Christ. How many groups claim that they are the true Church and are the only ones who are doing things the right way?

If the World did not know what was in the Bible and only had Christians for their knowledge of God, they would think that the Bible teaches to separate from your neighbor, not love your neighbor. The fact that on the very place where Jesus died to bring all Christians together, there is division, is a window into the state of the Church. We are all responsible.
