Forming Associations

“I would answer - Don’t do it. Don’t form any association. 

If “the love of the Truth” will not hold you together, nothing will. If you possess “the unity of the spirit” (Ephesians 4:3), you do not need outward organization. 

If you have not that unity, organizations are worse than useless. It is positively harmful, because it fosters the sectarian spirit. Do not form a sect, but cultivate the pilgrim spirit. 

We are not of this world. Our citizenship is in heaven. (Philippians 3:20)”
Arthur P. Adams (1847-1925)
