    Hi Jen, and thank you for your comment. Since I have been in the Church, the primary message regarding the 1st era of the Church was that "they lost their zeal and love for the truth." However, Christ actually commending them for their zeal in these areas. As I mentioned, the first casualty with splits and schisms are relationships. I believe this is the lesson for us today because we are admonished to listen to what the spirit says to "the churches." Stay tuned for more in the series, and thank you once again for taking the time to write.

    Kotie: Thanks for your comment. The Holy Spirit does indeed work in us, but take note of Paul's instruction to Timothy: 1 Timothy 4:14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 2 Timothy 1:6 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. Thus, there are things we can do that help accentuate the gift of God's spirit, which was the intent of the message. Thanks again, Steve
