There Is No Denomination With God

11

Christians on this forum should desist from the denomination syndrome. There is no denomination with God. Whether you believe in a secret rapture or not, God is the same. Whether you believe in Trinity or not, God is the same. Your doctrine is yours, and created in this world. Doctrines are not from God. Men read the Bible, and they added rules and codes of conducts for their congregation to follow. They aren't from God. I am not against your doctrine, and you cannot prove it that it is the one doctrine from God. Again, they are codes and conducts handed to you by the founder(s) of your denomination. Let there be peace. Whether you are Paul, or he is Apollo, God is God. We preach one God. This is how it should be. Can you really boldly prove beyond reasonable doubt only your members are saved? If you know within yourself that not only the members of your denomination will be saved, then think deeply: God who is in your denomination is likely in other denominations (I know He is not in all). So, if God is in some other denominations, it means you can survive outside your denomination if you find yourself in a situation you need to leave. Leaving your denomination and accepting others does not mean you abandon the teachings of your old denomination. People leave because of marriage so that two people can come together to raise their kids in unity. If both of them attend different denominations and they are both saved, it means they must find a denomination to go together. Another reason is change of city of residence. What if your denomination is bot in the city you presently live? Come on! Think! And there are other reasons. The culture in Nigeria is for the woman to follow the man to his church. It is a rule which has been accepted. But is it right? When a Nigerian man finds himself in another culture which does not follow this rule, how does he handle it? I think prayer is the KEY. If you and your partner says you are both believers, when you both pray together, you will find a way out. If you are desperate and it is a MUST for you to pick a partner in your denomination because you believe only your denomination is the way out and it is the ONLY place you can grow with God (Of course, think well...have you really tried other places to say that single place is the only place you can develop?), then, pick a partner in that your local church. It is a wise decision. Going far away from your local church, or across borders, to find a partner who is a member of your denomination is funny. Of course Catholics can try it...cos the population of the church is high. But when a tiny population denomination member thinks his denomination is the ONLY place for growth, then, why don't you focus on your local church to look for a partner? Going outside to convert another to your denomination is wrong. Also, the probability of meeting someone who is not a member of your denomination is slim. Stop hoping you will convert him/her to your denomination. You just want to waste the person's time. You can imagine dating someone for some months to years, and then the time comes and that's when his or her denomination is the place both must go. It is terrible. Go for someone in your denomination. Stop messing around with other's time. Preach Jesus Christ and not your denomination. Again if your denomination is the only one in your eyes, talk politely to people. I wish you all God's blessing. Note: I do not have anyone in mind I am attacking before posting this. I have just noticed the denomination syndrome is killing christian in Nigeria, and it must stop.
