Schism - (Easton's Bible Dictionary)

A separation, an alienation causing divisions among Christians, who ought to be united (1 Cor. 12:25).

Schism - (Webster's 1828 Dictionary)

SCHISM, n. sizm. [L. schisma; Gr. to divide, L. scindo.]

1. In a general sense, division or separation; but appropriately, a division or separation in a church or denomination of christians, occasioned by diversity of opinions; breach of unity among people of the same religious faith.

- Set bounds to our passions by reason, to our errors by truth, and to our schisms by charity.

In Scripture, the word seems to denote a breach of charity, rather than a difference of doctrine.

2. Separation; division among tribes or classes of people.
