In A.D. 664 Celtic Christians of Britain, Ireland and Scotland nearly came to blows with Roman Christians at the synod of Whitby in northern England. The issues? How to shave one’s head, the proper date of Easter, and at the root of it, who had the authority to set church policy. Hebrews 13:17 addresses infighting: “Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls and will give an account for their work. Let them do this with joy and not with complaints, for this would be no advantage for you.” Give your pastor a call today, just to encourage him.
