'Lord, we forbade that fellow
he was not one of us
how dare he cast out devils
and cause a lot of fuss.'

Now Jesus did rebuke them
Said, 'Forbid him not.'
This was the first instance of
Party spirit rot !

'I am of Paul;
Apollos for me
I follow after Barnabas
or any of these three'

But if the truth be known
It's Jesus that I pick
For the Holy Spirit said to me
'Be careful of the clique.'

Mark 9:38-40; 1 Corinthians 3:1-6
