An error held by some churches is the belief that religious differences are okay. I remind you that we have only one Bible and that Bible has only one message, and it demands that we believe and teach the same thing (1 Corinthians 1:10; 2 Cor. 13:11). So I ask “why aren’t we doing so?” And what are we going to do about it? It’s not pleasing to God if Baptists, Lutherans, or Catholics agree to disagree on doctrine and each claim to be teaching God’s word. Someone is wrong! (1 Cor. 14:33; Galatians 1:6-9; 2 John 9-11). Because out of the churches mentioned, no unity in doctrine exists among them; only differences in name, doctrine, organization, and work (Ephesians 4:3-6).
Jesus Christ said, “He would build His church” (Matthew 16:18). Which He did in Acts 2:27. Jesus built only one church, and He prayed that His followers would be one as He and the Father are one (John 17:20-24). Rather than thanking God for all the different churches in the world, man should pray as Christ did—that all come to the knowledge of the scriptures and be one, therefore leaving man made doctrines behind (Matt. 15:7-14; Mark 7:6-9).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
