    I think it's a spiritual growth/disciple​ship issue. We can talk all day long about individuals who complain about the sanctuary's temperature or the volume of the music or Sunday school versus small groups. If we are actively seeking the face of Christ through personal fellowship and devotion, these secondary matters will fade into non-existence while the mission of Christ takes preeminence. How do we move people to embrace the work of the kingdom when the sheep seem satisfied to wallow in their stubbornness?

    Simply stated: Too much selfishness; too little selflessness.

    Gossip. Also, being more concerned about yourself than the needs of others.
