According to the scriptures there are two groups of people, not 1500 groups. The two groups are Jews and Christians by faith (The Church), and Gentiles outside of the faith.
Today, there are still only two groups of people. When Christ came He did not come to establish a third and separate sect or group of people called Christians. He came to graft believing Gentiles with believing Jews to make one new body of believers called the Church and the other group is still the unbelieving gentiles.
Colossians 3:9-11, Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10. And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:11. Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
One body called the Church, made up of believing Jews and believing Gentiles. And one unbelieving body, the unbelieving Jews and the unbelieving Gentiles.
I want you to see how important it is to know this truth.
God in His infinite wisdom has not swayed with the masses or gone along with the brilliant religious minds who have created complicated doctrines of men. There are two camps, one in Christ and one outside of Christ. One accepted in the beloved and one rejected because of unbelief.
Why go there and discuss this sensitive subject?Listen carefully.
The days of relying on your religious affiliation or your Christian or Jewish heritage in lieu of a personal and active relationship with God is over.
You will no longer be blessed for sidestepping - evading - denying - bypassing - dodging or skirting God’s ordained will.
You will only be blessed when you fall under the leadership and guidance of the Holy Spirit of God."
