Denominationalism.


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.

  1. Even though I am not part of any one particular denomination I have learned a lot from those with in the different denominations.

    For example not all Baptise believe same thing so I don`t necessary believe everything that the Baptist believe but many of them have taught me some great truths over the years. Most of them have now passed on to their reward.

    It is same with Pentecostal and Charismatic preachers. There are some difference of minor interpretation so I check everything with the word of God, before I accept it, here a little there a little, line upon line and precept upon precept and by help of Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 28:9,10)

    The Bible speaks about those who are dead but still speaketh. It is refreshing at times to pick up their writings even though they are dead and learn from them.

    Now there are some who are no longer proclaiming the word of truth so I no longer will listen and it is the same today as it was in Paul`s day. What did Paul say in Rom. 1:18-20
    18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

    19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    1 TIM.4:1
    Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

    So as in Paul`s day there are some both with in and outside of denominations who have perverted the truth and become apostate.

    Just one more example before I go to work. I don`t believe all of the Catholic doctrine but we as Prostants can learn a lot from them in area of standing up for life of unborn, those who can`t stand up for themselves and are being slaughtered in the womb.

    So I take a stand with those both within our denominations and outside who are standing for the truth and reject those who are not and warn those who are deceived as the apostle Paul did.

    1. Your conclusion that there were denominations around during Paul's time is completely false. I conclude that you believe such because of 1 Tim. 4:1. and take the word "faith" as meaning denominations. Hubert, please you are going to have to do a study as to the history of denominational formation and stop injecting your own assumptions regarding the interpretation on the matter. "study to show yourself approved a workman, that needs not to be ashamed, by rightly dividing the word of truth.

      During the time of the early church and for subsequent years after, there weren’t denominations and therefore no need to refer to a church by a particular tag: Baptist, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Catholic, etc. The Church was unified and each congregation was generally denoted by its geographic location. i.e. the church at Ephesus, the church at Antioch, etc. Over some 600 years, a small crack would slowly divide this single unified church into two branches: The Roman Catholic branch and the Orthodox branch. Both branches would claim to be the "true church" and would accuse the other of apostasy even up to the twentieth century. All other denominational schisms came after the establishment of the Roman Catholic denomination.

      Again Hubert your premiss that denominations existed in Paul's time holds no biblical truth.
