Troublesome Saints

Part of a Sermon by Pastor John, February 18, 2012

I want everybody to be here in this Assembly of saints who wants to be here.  But there are some who, if allowed to come, would cause this body unnecessary problems; so, I cannot allow it.  Still, I do not like being in a room with just some of God’s people; I would sincerely love to be with all of them.  And I believe that everybody who has a heart for that to happen is going to see it when it does happen.  Someday, all who truly love peace and seek it will be together with God and His Son, and with every other believer who truly desires peace.
In the meantime, I must remain alert.  Some of God’s people love themselves more than they love others, and because of that, trouble follows them wherever they go.  The sheep of God’s pasture must be protected from such people, and it is the shepherd’s responsibility to do so.
