When I was a boy, the community seemed to care for each other and worship with others regardless of their denominational distinctions. But as I have had the cloak of naivety and innocence removed from my eyes over the years, I realize that it was all a pretense.
Some Christian churches are some of the biggest practitioners of religious bigotry there is.
In the town where I was reared, community residence used to share worship time with each other regardless of denominational differences. But as the years have progressed so has the divide.
Some denominations will not worship with another denomination.
Households are divided along denominational lines and religious traditions. A husband attends a Baptist church while his wife attends a Methodist church and their children are confused about it all and choose not to attend any church.
Churches within 50 feet of one another whose time of worship are exactly the same cannot worship together under the same roof because of denominational distinctions, religious traditions, church polity, denominational rules and guidelines, fabricated and unscriptural protocols and politics. Yet, they like to lie and say that they are all serving the same GOD.
One church believes in Calvinism. One Church believes in Methodism. One practices Catholicism and the other believes in Pentecostalism and yet others may espouse Fundamentalism, Humanism or Scientology. Regardless of their ism’s, they are all out of the will and order of GOD. And although they may appear to be worshippers of YHVH. But they are not. (2 Timothy 3:5)
They worship their own man-made image of GOD and they worship in the temple of their gods, effectively committing idolatry while deluding themselves into thinking that they are worshiping the TRUE and LIVING GOD in the Way that He prescribes to be worshiped. (Matthew 7:21-23)
THE HOLY SCRIPTURES RECORDS THE APOSTLE OF CHRIST SAYING:
“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, 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.” (1 Cor. 1:10)
THE HOLY SCRIPTURES ALSO RECORDS CHRIST AS HAVING SAID:
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35)
Where is the unity and ONENESS? Where is the ONE LOVE? Where is the OBEDIENCE?
I see the Catholic and the Protestant Churches.
I see the variations of Christian churches and belief systems.
But Where Is The Ekklesia of CHRIST – The Bride Adorned for her Groom?
Where are the obedient and loving children of YHVH?
Where are those who worship in the SPIRIT of HOLINESS?
Where are those who worship in the WAY of TRUTH and LIFE?
