WHO shed His life for us?? JESUS
Who lived in Heaven (perfect harmony) and didn't have to come to earth (disharmony)??? JESUS
Who is a very part of our creator God??? JESUS
Who told us, we come to the Father, by NONE ELSE but Himself?? JESUS
Yet what do we do in return????
We label ourselves with certain denominations!
We place walls between ourselves and others!
We believe that the denomination we serve is the One True Faith!!
Did Jesus teach that??? NO!
Jesus was the greatest teacher who ever lived!!
Who are we, to think, we are greater than He???
Who are we to think, we are wiser than Him???
YET...many of us believe, we are walking in His ways....
When we do it our way instead of His.
Lets read God's WORDS ON THIS!!
It is NOT a story, It is His word! and His teaching!
FROM THE APOSTLE PAUL
1 Corinthians 1:10-12 Divisions in the Church
I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another, so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.
My brothers, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. What I mean is this:
One of you says, “I follow Paul”;(I am ? Faith)
“I follow Apollos” (I am ? Faith);
“I follow Cephas” (I am ? Faith);
“I follow Christ. ( AMEN)”
Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you?
Were you baptized into the name of Paul?
I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, so no one can say that you were baptized into my name.
So then, no more boasting about men!!!!!!
All things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours,
and you are of Christ,
and Christ is of God. (1Corintians 1 :10-12)
We are not to BOAST about our denomination. Read it yourself!
We Are To Be One In HIM Alone....
I was stunned to read, not so long ago, that the First Christian Denomination to be Founded with Christ, and followed AFTER his death.
Was "The Sect of The Nazarene"
Acts 24:5... The Bible.
We are to stand together in Him, as part of His body.
Not alienated apart from Him, a broken body.
