The Bible never promotes division in the church. Not only did Jesus pray that we’d all be one, but Paul called the Corinthians out when they began to identify themselves too much with church leaders rather than with Christ. It is clear from the Scriptures that there was a struggle to keep the church unified and now two thousand years later we have hundreds of thousands of denominations—each one sharing in its own differences. The church looks less unified than ever. So how do we honor Jesus’ prayer in light of all of this? I propose an option and it is not to turn away from denominations. Check it out on today’s podcast.
