(From tract by Allen Webster)
Don't be mean spirited, hateful, holier-than-thou attitude
Don't be standoffish, monkish
It is not wrong to eat or socialize with the lost
We can not claim to know more about the Bible than others
God has boundaries to fellowship
Do God's boundaries allow the NT church to fellowship
with man-made denominations?
Denominations foster division, which God hates.
Jesus urged unity and opposed division
So did Paul – 1 Corinthians 1
The collective fellowship = brotherhood, family of God, church
is more than eating a meal together
Denominations reject God's plan of salvation.
Most denominations teach faith only, baptism not important
– say the sinner's prayer – not in the Bible
Denominations practice unauthorized worship
Communion – Acts 20:7
Denominations teach false doctrine
Baptism not important
2 John 1:9-11
2 Corinthians 6:14
1 Corinthians 1:20-31
