Fellowship Denominations?

(From tract by Allen Webster)

Start here

  1. Don't be mean spirited, hateful, holier-than-thou attitude

  2. Don't be standoffish, monkish

  3. It is not wrong to eat or socialize with the lost

  4. We can not claim to know more about the Bible than others

  5. God has boundaries to fellowship

Do God's boundaries allow the NT church to fellowship

with man-made denominations?

  1. Denominations foster division, which God hates.

    1. Proverbs 6:16-19

    2. Psalm 133:1

    3. Jesus urged unity and opposed division

    4. So did Paul 1 Corinthians 1

    5. The collective fellowship = brotherhood, family of God, church

    6. Fellowship is more than eating a meal together

       

  2. Denominations reject God's plan of salvation.

    1. Most denominations teach faith only, baptism not important

    2. Many teach say the sinner's prayer not in the Bible

       

  3. Denominations practice unauthorized worship

    1. John 4:24

    2. Mark 7:7-9

    3. Communion Acts 20:7

    4. Instrumental music

       

  4. Denominations teach false doctrine

    1. Faith only

    2. Baptism not important

    3. Instrumental music

    4. OSAS

    5. Sinner's prayer

       

  5. Summary passages

    1. 2 John 1:9-11

    2. Ephesians 5:7

    3. 2 Corinthians 6:14

    4. 1 Corinthians 1:20-31

    5. John 3:19
