“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,[a] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. My brothers and sisters, 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”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, so no one can say that you were baptized in my name. (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.) For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.” (1 Corinthians 1:10-17 NIV)
Hello, family! Denominations have divided us. Baptist, Methodist, Assemblies of God, even non-denomination in some ways has become a denomination. We (myself included) can get so caught up in what denomination we are from. That can hold us back from truly operating the way God wants us to. We should be united! But the Baptist doesn’t want to associate with the Pentecostal because they are not Baptist! Show me a half of a scripture that supports denominations! There is none, why? Because Christ is not divided! In Heaven, there is not going to be a Methodist section and a Pentecostal section and an Assemblies of God section! No! It’s going to be one big family! I am guilty I am non-denominational but whenever I went to another church that was not non-denominational, I looked down my nose at them! God checked me on it I was wrong! What matters is that we operate in the word of God, we Follow Christ He is the head. Don’t get caught up in denominations it can and will divide!
Much Love & God Bless
