Nicolaitans

Jesus hates the deeds and doctrines of the “Nicolaitans” and promises to fight against them with the sword of His mouth. (Whoa!)

From what I have read so far, it seems that this Nicolaitan doctrine was about ranking certain people in the body of Christ as higher than others, and these authority figures – a special, elite class – then dominating the rest.

No wonder Jesus hates and condemns this.  Such doctrine brings division, destroys fellowship, breeds fear, people pleasing and envy, and robs the body of Christ of true communion, joy, life and unity.
