Why don't people think it is God's will that the church be broken up into every which kind of assembly and grouping?

The devil loves uniformity or conformity

The way things are everyone can find the little [or large] family of believers that suits them and they can make their spiritual home there.

Paul did not like factions but he did understand that they were necessary.

When Jesus broke bread at the Last Supper He took the bread which symbolized His body the Church, He blest and brake it.

See? that Body that bread can never become one again, forever it is broken into ever increasing fragments...until we all eat it anew in the Kingdom

1 Corinthians 1 is of coarse my reference.  To be specific, I agree with you about the broken bread.  However, the bread is digested by all mankind in one way or another.  Some grieve God.  1 Corinthians 1 displays that Jesus didnít want disunity, but He knew it would occur.  I think doctrine has stood in the place of Love, and Galatians explains that the division isnít facilitated by God, but the flesh.  Can I reunify the Body?  No.  Can I become part of the solution, instead of part of the problem?  I think so.

The devil likes conformity within his domain, but Iím certain he divides the body of Christ to weaken it and perpetuate hostility among believers in Jesus of all flavors.

We are the temples of God, while the organizations are just gathering places.  Wherever two or more and such forth.  Personally, I see the whole of existence as my place of gathering, because all are currently purchased by Jesus, but have some heavy decisions to make.  Love beats back the lies of Satan and unifies mankind in Christ.

Division may be inevitable, but Iím done being part of it.  I now go to great lengths to support unity in Jesus and when rejection occurs, itís usually someone casting me aside.  Thatís okay by me.  I still desire the King of Peace to reign within my heart and within others, that unity, not uniformity, can occur.

All Love in Christ Jesus to you.

Spelling corrected?  :D
