NT - Paul:
This is exactly what the situation is here in South Florida!
The first letter of Paul to the Corinthians can be seen as an appeal to unity in the face of some shocking examples of disunity.

The Doctrine of Spiritual Gifts
Point 1: Setting the scene for Paul’s teaching on the Spiritual Gifts.
The most extensive treatment of the subject of spiritual gifts is found in Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, chapters 12 through 14.
1. Paul had received an oral report from a woman by the name of Chloe with some alarming information, 1CO 1:11; 5:1.
2. He received a disturbing letter directly from the church at Corinth, a letter displayed an appalling lack of understanding about what Paul was teaching them, 1CO 7:1.
This problem was festering in the church of Corinth, and Paul addressed the problem head on with his teaching on the spiritual gifts.
This problem was disunity.
