Is Christ divided?

This is the first blog on this site. The title comes from 1st Cor. 1:11-13. This church had gotten drawn away from the unity in Christ. Frankly, I see the same here, as well as almost everywhere within christendom. Some quite clearly present their particular group as the holders of the truest of the followers of Jesus Christ. Some are so bold as to clearly present the view that all outside of their faith are out of true communion in Jesus Christ.

 

As you read through the New Testament, and the churches mentioned, which would you have rather been associated with? Most likely, few would choose Corinth, the ones Paul addressed, yet most are doing the same as they did. NO, Christ is not divided. Neither should those who follow close to Him, be. What matters, is a "new creation", the Spirit of the Living God, inside of us. Cleansed, by the blood of the New Covenant. Purchased by and through the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

What truly matters is who is living within, giving Him the devotion a Master is truly deserving of. One lacking these things, are not safe in any name within christendom. The name that truly matters, is Jesus Christ, with no exceptions. Without Jesus Christ, there is no New Testament Church. There is no one who could be called Christian. He called all to come freely, to Him. To the disappointment of many, He mentioned no particular group to come through. This man is saved, through, and by, Jesus Christ. Yes, I am a member of His Church. Most likely, the name affiliated with Christ, through this church, would be disapproved of many, within the body of Christ itself. And now we are right back to Corinth.

 

If your church, preaches the blood atonement, as the means of salvation, through Jesus Christ the Lord, we are part of His body, the Church. He is the word of God, and we are naturally bound to His word. We recognize this body by how they teach His word, and how they live it, by the fruit produced. "There is none other name under heaven given unto men, by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12. Amen.
