1 Corinthians 14:26

How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.


Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Denominationalism is confusing, isn't it? It seems that everywhere one turns there is a new sort of church popping up; one for every type of personality, and one that fits every individual's particular set of preferences. I can't help but wonder if this is pleasing to God as the end result is often separation and conflict amongst believers.

The answer lies in the Bible which clearly instructs us to not neglect gathering together with other believers and then goes on to tell us how to conduct ourselves while doing so. Perhaps an effective way to determine if a particular church, or even a whole denomination, is truly doing spiritual work, is to compare it to the instructions given in God's Word. Try it and see!

God Bless You!
