Denomination segregationists are responsible for the segregation of people who assemble in denominated buildings because of different denominated beliefs, all of whom claim that their particular belief system is bible based. Denominations are not supported by scripture, the early church, Christ or the apostles nor are they the Church that Jesus said He would build even though they may have members of Community of the Redeemed within their denominated membership.
Denominationalism when obsessed with self-preservation and self-growth, is a barrier that dangerously limits greater streams of spiritual revelation to flow from God to members of Christ body that are trapped in religious deception. Elitism, legalism, judgmental attitudes, denominational stance, and man-made rules and regulations are the order of the day within the man-made institution.
Constructed of human ideologies and doctrines, denominationalism is a man-made structure that obscures the Gospel of Jesus Christ...that was revealed to Paul by Christ Himself...from the Community of the Redeemed to share with the Community of Humanity. For the life of Christ is shaded by religious spectacles decreasing the Community of Humanities ability from experiencing the Christ life living through His redeemed who are imprisoned by religious fables.
Denominationalism stinks with human tradition and self-righteousness. Tradition is an established pattern of thought or behavior handed down by word or example from one generation to another. The Pharisees once asked Jesus, "Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat" (Matt. 15:2). If the tradition we hold to is not because of misinterpreted scripture the redeemed of The Lord has no right to hold onto it!
Jesus revealed their hypocrisy, and He accused them of "making the word of God of no effect through [their] tradition" (see Mark 7:6-13).
Unfortunately, much of Scripture has been "interpreted" for us by carnal speculations based on pre-cross scriptures handed down from one generation to another. Such traditional spiritual misconceptions hinder the Holy Spirit from revealing the truth of Jesus and His Gospel to humanity. The church today needs return to the Word of God (Jesus) and interpret scripture through the lens of Jesus and allow the Spirit of Truth to teach us the oracles of God.
The apostle Paul declared he was "exceedingly zealous for the traditions" of his fathers "UNTIL" (until what)..."it pleased God to reveal His Son" (Gal. 1:14-16). If we are holding on to the traditions of man, is it possible that Jesus "The Son" is not revealed in us enough to illuminate the clarity we need to understand religious deception nor Gospel of Christ?
People who promise to keep you from deception by establishing a set of rules for you to obey and live up to while slinging a string of Bible verses at you that they have no idea as to its history or context to prove their denominated doctrines are among the most deceiving people out there. Their deception is accepted by them as truth, therefore the deception they teach as truth leads other people into accepting the deception as truth therefore, they are deceivers.
Like Paul, we need deliverance from devotion to deceptive religious denominational tradition and customs by allowing the Spirit to reveal Christ in us so we will be set free from religious deception.
