In order to avoid this, we must identify the source of these conflicts that tear down churches. James 3:13-4:1 explains this clearly. The source of such conflicts is Self-pleasing (4:1), which manifests itself in bitter jealousy and selfish ambition (3:14), and eventually spreads throughout the church resulting in disorder and every other kind of evil (3:16). That's why we are warned in Hebrews 12:15 to ensure that bitterness is dealt with when it is still a root (in the heart and in the thoughts), because if it does actually spring up, it will defile many.
