The churches of Christ Greet You (Romans )
Denominationalism has been around for so many years that everybody takes for granted that it is legitimately supported by the Bible. But there is no such thing as denominationalism to be found in the teachings of Christ. Even the word is no where found in the Bible. There is no such thing as everyone having their own interpretation of the Bible and every interpretation being right. In fact, the concept of everybody doing his or her own thing and being acceptable to God is denounced by the Bible (cf. 1 Cor. 1:10-13; John 17:20-23). Truth does not have one hundred ways to be understood with each of those ways being correct.
There is no such thing as the “sinner’s prayer.” Oh, you may have heard preachers on the radio, TV, or other places telling you to say the “sinner’s prayer,” but you will not find it in the Bible for there is no such thing. The way of salvation has always involved hearing (Romans ), believing (Mark ), repenting (Acts ), confessing faith in Christ (Romans 10:9-10), and being immersed in water for the remission of sins (Acts ).
There is no such thing in the Bible as having a woman preaching to men or leading any part of the worship to God. Not one trace of that can be found anywhere in the Scriptures. Women are told to learn in silence and they are not to teach over the man (1 Timothy -12). Yes, one may see women preaching with men present or leading the worship in some Church, but they have no authority from God to do it. It doesn’t matter how long it has been practiced by religious groups - it is still sin.
Also, there are no such things in the Bible as Easter or Christmas celebrations, sprinkling or pouring for baptism, or one man being The Pastor of a congregation.
