 Re: The Denomination Is An Abomination ~Andy Zoppelt

denoimations are a bibilical prinicaple

all the tribes have a denomational name like levites the tribe of dan ects

jesus of what nasarath,,who was the nasaren

the bible talks about the herbrews ,and helinists,,which shows that even christans identafied them selfs in different groups

we see each church was name according to where they were ,,,the ephesians ,,,,what it does show is that christans ,,went by a name other then the church of jesus christ ,,even the word christian was developed by heathen or jews ,,and was a negative word ,,and the church of jesus christ ,,decide to take of that name ,,,,im sure there would have been devision about that as not all of the elect ,would have been happy to be labled as a christan

even labeling one self as a nondemonational christian,,is far removed from the name church of jesus christ ,or chruch of the first born as the bible teaches

so there is strong contradiction when one calls all denoimatioan an abomination ,,this statment is unbibilcal,,and is taking the scipture out of contex regarding what paul said to the church at corinith

paul using the devisive term church at corinith ,would be an aboination ,becasue the name jesus and christ is not mentioned ,and is obviously another name christans had

in it root most of this sort of debate ,is straning out nats ,wile chewing on camles

sorry if i sound blunt

I agree with the sentiments of 'brothagary'.

Well, the article is good, but I wish it included a clear-cut disclaimer on what it does not mean to say.

I guess it is rather those unkind and cynical attitudes toward the other groups that consume us.

Hi Gary, got to disagree with you there brother. When Paul or Scripture is making this reference to the church at Corinth or anywhere else, he is simply identifying a geographical place such as a town or city. He is not saying it is the Corinth church, he is saying that it is the Church in Corinth. That is a far cry from denominationalism. Another thing to consider, there is not a single reference in the NT to " churches," plural within any town or city or village. The plural term is only related to regions. Check it out if you have the time, its an interesting study that may lead you to conclude that there was but one church in every town or city or village. This is the record of the Scripture.......bro Frank

Gary, Galatia was a region (in Asia minor) not a city or town.

Abomination - A vile, shameful, or detestable action, condition, habit, etc.:

Jesus didnt die to build a denomination. He bestowed a kingdom to us. It is carnal religious men who bestowed denominations to us. But Gods people love to have it so.

Hebrews 12:28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.

1 Corinthians 1:10 amplified
But I urge and entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in perfect harmony and full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions or factions or divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions and judgments. For it has been made clear to me, my brethren, by those of Chloe's household, that there are contentions and wrangling and factions among you.

Many denominations are built of likeminded people of a likeminded faith. The true church is only made up of born again believers. To call a denomination an abomination is almost abominmal in itself. However, some denomiations have become apostate and no longer make up the true church, which is purchased with His blood. Christ said that He would build His church and man cannot tear it down. Organizations may crumble, but not those who make up His bride. You could use the example of OT Israel. Were they an abomination? Not when they were faithful to God. When they fell away God, He destroyed them. Not all who are of Israel are Israel.
