What Is Denominational Division -- and Why Does It Exist?
Why do you think it exists?
Can you find any denomination names in the scripture, other than "church" and "Christians", and in some translations, the "Way", and of course, the core word, the "Truth"?
God shared His wisdom with humankind in the message contained in the Holy Bible. Some thoughts about Christian division: Mark 3:25 "And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand". Matthew 12:25 "And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand" Luke 11:17 "But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth."
