Ponderings: Why do Christians fight each other?

There’s something that I can’t understand.

Why do brothers in Christ fight with each other on certain understanding on theology issues that are not clear in the Bible (free will, predestination, speaking in tongues, the spiritual gifts)…etc. All the while Satan and his demons sit back enjoying the view watching Christians hate each other and instead of being more Christ-like they are being more demon-like. Don’t misunderstand, Truth is number 1 but when things in scripture are not clear or some Christians who are closer to the Lord will hear the Spirit’s interpretation while the other who is further from Christ will not hear the Spirit clearly and misinterpret, such is the explanation how one passage ends up with two different interpretations from two Spirit filled Christians.

I love doctrine and without correct doctrine pertaining to Jesus, no one can get saved but the doctrine that’s not fundamental, we should seek the Lord for understanding and not the church fathers of the reformation who were fallible men. Jesus didn’t disclose everything in the Bible to us as stated in Deuteronomy 29:29 The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law. We are brothers in Christ because of our faith is solely based on Jesus Christ who is revealed in holy Scripture. At the end, Christians will always have discord with each other until maturity is established in the person. I cannot understand exalting a dead church leader over the other and condemn others who believe otherwise and still say, “I love my brother.” We may fool people but we can’t fool God.
