I am surprised that so few ministers ever speak about the evilness of envy, emulation and rivalry in churches. It is one of the worst sins yet the least talked about. It pervades in christian circles, hence the need to address. It is very destructive and insidious.

I believe the whole Bible because it's the truth. Where there is envying and strife there is a whole lot of confusion.
