God Thinking LIV - Did You Create Your Own Religion? 5

"Have you ever wondered why there are so many denominations when Christ calls us to be of the same mind?

There was never supposed to be multiple denominations - catholic, protestant, reformed, primitive, Apostolic, Charismatic, traditional, five fold ministry, Pentecostal, full gospel, ½ gospel, no gospel, intra-denominational, non-denominational, et al.

I say there was never supposed to be so many denominations because the scriptures call for unity, not separation and it is separation that most denominations practice and celebrate.

don’t get me wrong, they are already created and we need to look for the good in them, but there is no scriptural evidence of any religious order being created, ordained or institutionalized by God, except one.

According to the scriptures there has always been only one group accepted and that is His children, by faith.  
According to the scriptures found in Ephesians 4:4-6, "There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  5.  One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6.  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
