You raise a good question here. I've wondered the same thing myself. It does divide us. And, it says in the Bible that a house divided against itself will not stand. That's why so many Churches fall. But, if someone was to truely keep their eyes focused on God, and not on the world and put TOTAL trust in the Lord. Having compassion and not judging. Then there would be no division. But because people are so worldly, trying to fit in to the world and stuff, they fail to realize the closer they get to the worldy things the further they get away from the things of God. Anyway, that is all.
Shalom & Blessed be
