Publishers Description Few works of the enemy are so destructive, so wrenching to the body of Christ as division in a church congregation. The reasons are many and include ambition, bitterness, and jealousy. Once a wedge is driven into the heart of a church, the congregation and pastor are usually destroyed by bitterness, gossip, rebellion and even hatred. Until now wounded flocks and broken pastors have had little direction for healing. With candor and insight, Francis Frangipane exposes the true force that pits Christians against one another. He explains what to do if caught in a split and offers safeguards against future strife. Here is help for churches to heal the rifts and move forward into Christlikeness once again.

Working for Unity Nov 25, 2009
- A House United covers most of the bases about Church unity, and is especially practical. Francis does not merely talk about theories but what we should do about it. He gets down to the nitty-gritty like what cause divisions, how to heal divisions and more. - Example the primary cause of divisions is Christians/members who complain and criticize each other and criticize the leadership of their church. I am not ignorant that our leaders are not perfect, and that they miss many things in the bible but do "I help" by criticizing them? - One of Satan's greatest strategy is to DIVIDE the Body of Christ. - R.A. Torrey said, If you want a "BETTER" pastor/leader PRAY for him and then stand back and watch God change him and make him a better leader. Praying Hyde learned this when he started to criticize an evangelist in India but the Lord led Hyde to pray for this evangelist AND primarily to THANK GOD for him. Hyde then saw God change the evangelist, in a few months, to become one of the BEST evangelist in all of India. - Unity is NOT AN OPTION, spiritual warfare can ONLY be won when we stand together, help one another, and pray for one another. In the O.T. the elders (leaders) ruled (together) in the gate of the city. - THAT is what we need TODAY: pastors and other leaders, in a city, coming 'TOGETHER' to pray, and to rule in the gate(s) for their city. Ps. 133 God 'commands' a blessing THERE, where brothers dwell together in unity. I PRAY IT BE SO in my city and your city.
