16. DENOMINATIONS & DISHARMONY

Denominations, by their nature and definition, show disunity, disharmony, dissension, division and discord within the Church. (There is only one Church - Ephesians 4:1-6, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27. In fact the Greek word for "church" means "called out ones"! So if you are a Born-again Christian you`re part of the "church"!) Denominations are a human-made thing, not a God-made thing! A schism. It’s outright Sin and it’s negatively affecting and influencing the entire body!The Holy Spirit is not going to give contradictory points of view or interpretation on doctrine to 2 different people, groups of people or denominations. For a few examples: lady preachers in the Church, or not. Spiritual gifts are for today, or they are not. Someone(s) is actively promoting false doctrine and schism within the body! It’s outright Sin. Thus saith Yahweh, "Even the denominational and doctrinal differences are a symptom of the problem, not the root. Effect, not the cause. The root and cause is a proud and stubborn heart!" That’s why the Church is pretty much powerless. It’s divided against itself! (1 Corinthians 11:30.) God is calling the Entire Body of Y`shua to Repent. Thus saith Yahweh "Judgement first starts at MY House (the house of God), Not with the World and Unbelievers! ALSO read 1 Cor. 1; 10-15, and substitute denominational terms like, Baptist, Luthern, Pentecostal, And Church of Christ, for example, for the Names of Paul, Peter, Apollos, and Christ! We are doing EXACTLY what the church at Corinth was doing -Factions! Paul REBUKED them for doing this! In Y`shua, Tom .
