    "Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another." In the same spirit as, "love suffers long and is kind;" we should be careful not to find fault with each other, but rather to support each other in the Lord; with the same good mind toward them as the Lord has. Inasmuch as we have a fear and dread of the Supreme Greatness of God we should reverence His image in all men.

This was Jesus speaking to his disciples before he sent them out to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. They believed in God , but refused to believe Jesus came as the Son of God, to do the work of God, his Father in Heaven. Jhon 14:20 I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you .
