HOW DENOMINATIONALISM OBSTRUCTS THE SALVATION OF SOULS
Monday, November 30
30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8: 36
"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
A great majority of denominations in our day are a problem to God and to their members for the following reasons:
(a) They promote their founders and leaders and obey them above Jesus.
(b) They propound denominational doctrines and obey them above God's word.
(c) Each denomination stands alone and is independent of any other denomination.
(d) Each denomination is protective over her members and denies them access to the word of God preached by other ministers and churches, to the point that even Jesus and the Holy Spirit are denied access to them with the true gospel.
(e) The denominations fight each other and reject corrective assistance from others. Many of these denominations do not operate in truth and their members are denied access to the truth available elsewhere to their eternal doom.
(f) Most denominations have left the gospel of Jesus which is salvation from sin, holy living and heaven. They are now teaching and inspiring their members for earthly prosperity, greatness and riches.
(g) Many churches are now operating by demons. The prosperity they promote and the signs and wonders they perform are empowered by Satan. They promote the use of
handkerchiefs, oil, water, sand, salt, and other physical objects thereby turning the faith of their ignorant followers from Jesus to these dead things for their eternal doom.
(h) Most of these churches who are given to errors threaten their members in various ways to keep them in bondage.
(i) Many churches use demonic powers on their members to keep them from understanding the word of God and from leaving the authority of their leaders.
Thought for the day:
Reject denominational bondage in all its ramifications.
Song for the day:
I don’t care what church you belong to....
Bible reading for the day:
Ezekiel 43-44; 2 Peter 2
