What type of thing would seriously and urgently concern the Apostle Paul about Christians?

Paul challenges me to get along. That is it.

Paul would be “shocked” at the condition of the the faithful today. I am sure his admonition would doubly stand.

My goal is to get along. That is your goal as well.

May I get along with my fellow believers. May I promote consideration of my brothers and sisters.

I have a serious concern to bring up with you, my friends, using the authority of Jesus, our Master. I’ll put it as urgently as I can: You must get along with each other. You must learn to be considerate of one another, cultivating a life in common. I bring this up because some from Chloe’s family brought a most disturbing report to my attention—that you’re fighting among yourselves! I’ll tell you exactly what I was told: You’re all picking sides, going around saying, “I’m on Paul’s side,” or “I’m for Apollos,” or “Peter is my man,” or “I’m in the Messiah group.” 1 Corinthians 1:10-12
