Unity In The Faith

The Lord God did not intend for us to have different denominations and religions.  It is clear that we should not walk by any other name, other then Christ (1 Cor 1:12-13).  Yet we have Mormons, Lutherans, Methodist, etc. All walking in the name of someone other then our Lord Jesus.  It is by Jesus Christ we are saved, not by the name of any other. It is clear that we should not be separated by different belief systems (1 Cor 1:10), we are to all speak the same thing and there should be no division.  The Bible also speaks of those who are going into the churches and trying to deceive (Col 2:8).  Scripture makes it clear that we are saved through the Gospel and the power of God, not through any mans wisdom (1 Cor 2:5).  It is through the Bible alone we are saved, yet so many believe we need other books and philosophy's in order to be saved.

1 Corinthians 1:12-13

Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

1 Corinthians 1:10

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Ephesians 4:5-7

One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Colossians 2:8

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:17

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

1 Corinthians 2:5

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

1 Corinthians 2:13


Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Hi Cassandra, I like your Unity in the Faith statement. God is not the author of confusion yet we live in a world where any one can start up their own church and say it's the truth because it is inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Your template background is so colorful and eye catching.

Cassandra

Yes, and we know that anything that goes against the Word of God is false doctrine.
