The motivation of those who cause division

Paul told the church to note those who cause division, because division is not what we have learned in Christ, but He wants us to strive for unity.

Then Paul revealed why people cause division and offend others,

“For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple” (Romans 16:18).

Such people are only thinking of themselves, and they will use whatever good-sounding words they can to persuade people to follow them.
