CHURCH-2 - The Church Of Christ Is Not A Denomination
"I plead with you brethren by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you," 1 Corinthians 1:10.
The word denomination has multiple meanings. It can mean division or naming after another. When we refer to denominations, we're talking about religious groups that carry men's names and religious groups that cause division rather than unity in the body of Christ. Why is it that the Lord's church must not be a denomination? As we look to Scripture, we find a host of reasons why denominations are not acceptable to Almighty God.
