Why Religious Denominations Are Anti-Scriptural!

God's ONE true Church on earth is united under one covenant.

There are literally thousands of religious denominations claiming to be followers of Jesus Christ. Millions attending these denominational churches believe God approves of all the conflicting dogmas, doctrines, edicts and various confusions of interpretation. Yet most have never examined the word of God to determine if denominationalism is scriptural.

The word “denomination” signifies a part of a whole, a class, or division. When one searches the Scriptures he finds that no where is it suggested that the one true Church of God is made up of divisions. There are some very good reasons for this:

First, our Lord prayed for unity on the behalf of His followers, saying,  “that they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me” (Jn. 17:20-21). Nowhere does this prayer even remotely suggest a clutter of various groups at odds with each other and teaching conflicting doctrines under different names.

Second, Christ’s teachings advocate unity and condemn division, such as that among the Corinthians brethren (1Cor. 1:10-13). The Scriptures state Christ’s church is His body and that there is only “one body” (Eph. 1:22-23; 4:4) . Yet the denominations say there are many religious bodies that make up the church. Either the bible is correct, or they are. Should we believe God or men?

True Christians are members of the ONE body of Christ, simply titled the “Church of God” throughout scripture. They serve, and worship God the way the early disciples did (Acts 2:41-42), keeping the law and governmental structure the way God intended.
