An OAC member wrote: “...All schisms were due to personalities that would rather reign in hell than serve in heaven...”
“...this can be viewed as a form of purification. If gold is placed in a heated oven, it becomes more pure due to the unpure parts being removed. The Church becomes more pure with schisms by removing the impurities...”
- 1830s – People who had been driven out of other churches for the exercise of “spiritual gifts” gathered around Reverend Edward Irving of the National Scotch Church
- 1833 – Reverend Edward Irving is excommunicated from the National Scotch Church and restarts meetings in a hired hall in London, many of his original congregation followed him and from this congregation emerged the Catholic Apostolic Church (also known as Irvingites)
- 1863 – “angel” Friedrich Wilhelm Schwartz and his Hamburg congregation are expelled in writing from the Catholic Apostolic Church (Hamburg schism) and start a new church, Allgemeine Apostolische Mission (later to become the New Apostolic Church)
- 1878 – “prophet” Heinrich Geyer leaves the Allgemeine christliche Apostolische Mission and starts a new congregation, Apostolische Mission, which wasted away in 1896
- 1902 – “elder” Julius Fischer breaks away from the Apostolic Mission Church and forms his own church called Apostelamt Juda (later to become the Apostelamt Jesu Christi)
- 1915 – “apostle” Carl Klibbe severs all connections with the New Apostolic Church and becomes the Old Apostolic Church of Africa in 1927
- 1925 – “apostle” Heinrich Velde leaves Carl Klibbe’s movement and starts the Apostolic Church
- 1968 – “apostle” Jim Scotch Ndlovu leaves the Old Apostolic Church and starts the Twelve Apostles Church of Africa
- 1972 – “apostle” Robert William Lombard leaves the Old Apostolic Church and starts the Non-White Old Apostolic Church (later to become the Reformed Old Apostolic Church)
This appears to be another example of the pot calling the kettle black.
1 Corinthians 12:24-25 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

John 3:16-21 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
