Denominational Divergence is Sin...

EZEKIEL 3:1-27 <---Click Here To Read...

Ezekiel was a servant of God sent, to tell his countrymen what God had to say. Even though God warned him, that they would not listen to him. Perhaps he was sent because one would listen and be saved and that one might have only been Ezekiel himself.

Perhaps like Ezekiel and his time so is our time and the perversion of the gospel through denominational divergence, which is really just men arguing for the gospel as their own. Denominations are certainly not part of scripture. In fact scripture talks against sectarianism and calls it sin. If sectarianism is denominational divergence then denominations are sinful and do not glorify God. Instead they give cause for contempt of the church by non-believers for the scripture clearly states they will know we are Christians by our love (John 13:35).

Unless Christians of every denomination stand united under one God, one gospel, one message then you condemn those you think you may be saving through the perverted gospel of your denominational divergence.

Denominations are based in conflict and certain scriptures of the bible, but the bible itself is a whole and was not always based on chapter verse as we know it today it was more than likely written in what is called scripto continua.

What is scripto continua?

Because of the scarcity of papyrus outside of Egypt, the earliest manuscripts, which were non-biblical material, were written scripto continua, without any spaces between words or sentences, and it was likely that the original autographs of the Bible were written in a similar fashion. Examination of the early Greek texts also finds no upper and lower case distinction in lettering and an absence of punctuation until the ninth century AD.

In fact In 1240, Cardinal Hugo of St. Cher published the first Latin Bible with the chapter divisions that exist today. The Jews started using these chapter divisions in 1330 for their Hebrew Bible.

If the practice of denominational divergence is not biblical but sin then every denomination is wrong and will likely pay for it with their lives and the lives of their members and adherents. Repent before it's to late and turn from the sin of denominational divergence.


The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
