1 Peter 1:22 KJV “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:”
An exclusive relationship; “Just me and God,” may sound good but is that what the Bible teaches? Do we have a relationship only with God? The passage above tells us to love one another with a pure heart FERVENTLY. Is that the kind of love we have for one another? Is our love for each other on fire and intense? Or is it mild or cold? Some sadly believe they can disregard what is written and have an exclusive relationship with God and exclude loving relationships with fellow believers. This is a doctrine from hell:
1 John 4:20 KJV “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”
1 John 3:10 KJV “In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”
1 John 3:14-15 KJV “We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.  Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”
Scripture says no loving relationships with fellow believers equals no relationship with God, period. Don’t let anyone trick you into believing otherwise. Anyone who teaches contrary to this true doctrine is a false teacher. You cannot have God and exclude the brethren. How can anyone read the passages above and say, “I love God,” knowing they have resentment in their hearts towards fellow Christians? Sadly many can.😥 They have been deceived by the darkness:
1 John 2:9-11 KJV “He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.”
1 John 4:12 KJV “No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.”
There it is again: proof that God dwells ONLY in those who love the brethren. They have a true relationship with God. You cannot separate God and fellow believers. They are inseparable. The church is the bride of Christ. Do you really think you can have Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and hate members of his bride? Would you accept someone who shows contempt for your spouse? No.🤔
Jesus ain’t playin when it comes to His bride.😳
There are no exclusive relationships with God, period. If we exclude members of Christ’s body; His bride, for whatever reason, we are really excluding ourselves from the head which is Christ:
1 Corinthians 12:21,25 KJV “And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.  That there should be no schism [a split or gap a separation] in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.”
There are some among the church who teach it’s ok to have heresies or be a heretick (Titus 3:10-11) and still have God’s favor. Disunion is not of God. It’s of the Devil. REPENT!
2 Peter 2:1 KJV “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”
Those who teach it’s ok to create factions, divisions, separations in the church are denying the Lord Jesus that bought them. The Greek word for “denying” in 2 Peter 2:1 means to contradict. How sad that some have been deceived into thinking that divisions in the church are ok. How blind to think that Jesus is on our side when we’re contradicting him by causing divisions, disunion, separations, splits, heresies among God’s people.😪 This is serious! Please repent if you have been doing this. Causing disunity in the body of Christ isn’t worth going to hell FOREVER. You have to really really hate someone to be willing to throw it all away and hold on to that hatred. REPENT! Please don’t be stupid! Repent! Jesus ain’t playin when it comes to His bride.😳 He expects and commands unity among his members.
