Acting like brothers and sisters does not mean that we do not admonish our brother or sister when time is necessary. And I agree, we have to follow in Jesus' footsteps. All of them, even the ones which we would rather ignore.

Jesus said:

"Go therefore, making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the + Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them *all* that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you even unto the end of the age."

Notice He said "All"----not just the ones we would rather ignore, including the Holy Eucharist, the priesthood, sanctity of marriage and of life, etc.

I agree with you Paul. It's just that too often we tend to see what separates us more than what unites us. Jesus could have focused on the errors people did, but He didn't. That might be a clue to us.

Shouldn't we act more like brothers instead oh hitting us with the Bible?

A statement I once heard, We are more seporate on Sunday mornings then any other time because we go to our seporate Churches.
