The Importance Of The Unity Of The Body Of Christ (Part 2 continued)

Posted by: Minister Robert McConkey on Thu, Aug 12, 2021

Sectarianism divides the Body Of Christ, which the Enemy uses to weaken and make it ineffective and it also points to spiritual immaturity

  I pointed out earlier, in part 2 of this message , that when some people who are supposed to Christians, fall into denominationalism,  they haven't spiritually matured, because they act and behave like, like non-Christians, so there is almost no distinction between them and non-believers,  they have allowed themselves to take on the mindset of secularists, who are without Christ, and really don't have the mind of Christ.

 This is true, is because denominationalism hs no place in the Body Of Christ.  It causes Christians to be so focused on the denomination that they are part of, they begin to lose their true identity--their identity in Him. They, I need to make apparent again, cease to be known as Christians, and become denominationalists.

 Those who do so, are allowing themselves to become more like the world's system in their thinking, because when it becomes more about belonging to a denomination, than belonging to Him, being a member of a denomination, gets to be like being part of a popular social club.

 Denominationalism splits the Body Of Christ, and will eventually destroy Christian fellowship.  It cause Christians to be jealous of one another, and create strife between them, which inevitably lead to division. So I say, that denominationalism points to the fact, that such Christians have matured in their Christian faith. They either remained spiritual "infants" where they want the "meat" of Christian to be made "digestible" to them, or have they stopped growing spiritually, and are nothing more spiritual "teenagers," who don't think that they need to be taught the "deeper things" of Christian doctrine.

 Christians who stay spiritual "infants," are too gullible, where they are as pointed out in "tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine."  And  those who  stop in their growth as spiritual "adolescence," even though they grown to the point they are able to overcome and resist the Enemy, can too easily give into spiritual "peer pressure," because they want to be liked and popular in "religious" circles.

 This ends part 2 of this message, I will continue with part 3 of it, next week.
