Denominational Logic Says 2+2=4 And 2+2=5, That Both Answers Are Right
The Baptist church teaches baptism must be immersion; the Methodist church teaches sprinkling will suffice. Yet Baptists and Methodists think both churches are right. The new Community churches think man has free will; Presbyterian churches believe just the opposite. Yet the members of both churches think both groups are right. The Episcopal church practices infant baptism; those calling themselves “Bible Churches” say only believers should be baptized. But neither church thinks the other is wrong. I think it is fair to say almost all denominational people think it is fine with God to have all these different type churches with all their different conflicting doctrines.In contrast to that: A main theme of Jesus’ final prayer (in the garden) was for unity, that believers would be “one” (John 17:21-22). God says there should be “no divisions” among us … that we all should “speak the same thing” (I Cor 1:10). He says if we teach anything different than what the New Testament says, we will be “accursed” (Gal 1:6-9). Jesus said if we teach the “commandments of men,” our worship will be “vain” (Matt 15:9). God’s book says whoever “abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God” (II John 9).There is only one right answer to our math problem 2+2. Likewise there is only one right answer to any particular religious question/issue. Only the “truth shall make you free” from sin (John 8:32). Are you continuing in the one truth of God’s word (John 8:31), or are you blindly following the teaching of man (Matt 15:14)? Contact me if you are not sure.
