Barriers to Christian Fellowship

“‘For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free’ (1 Cor. 12:13; cf. Gal. 3:28). Here the apostle refers to what are always two biggest barriers to social harmony: ethnicity and economics. Division by race and class hinders every attempt to establish human community. There are other barriers as well–for example, gender differences exacerbated by the battle of the sexes, social differences caused by physical handicaps, generational differences caused  by a gap in ages.” -Phil Ryken, City on a Hill
