      From the very outset of the organization dissension arose among the members, and one group arrayed itself against the other. The feeling at times ran high; it would then die down, only to be fanned into flames again on the slightest occasion. We are told that these people are deeply religious, but their meetings were turbulent and disorderly. They failed to heed the admonition of St. Paul to the church at Corinth, when he said: "Let all things be done decently and in order." (1 Corinthians, 14:40.) Their business meetings were opened by prayer, but ended in such confusion and uproar that the police were often called in to restore order. It may well be said that the members belong to the church militant, rather than the church triumphant.
