Community is important. They are often formed around common beliefs and ideals. But sometimes these communities develop un-healthy environments that can narrow, stifle, or limit perspectives. One example of this is the echo chamber.

Believe it or not, Paul had to deal with this in the first century church.

For when one of you says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere men?

What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, as the Lord has assigned to each his role. I planted the seed and Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. He who plants and he who waters are one in purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.

By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one must be careful how he builds.

1 Cor 3:4-10

Ministries, if not careful, can become "idols". Invariably, they become another iteration of a culture they rile against. Closed, exclusive, attacking those that differ from or threaten it.

But each one must be careful how he builds.
