It was not the CC that fractured the ‘Body of Christ’.
Denominations and sects that are man made have divided the Lord’s people, which have various doctrines that Christ did not teach.
Whether baptist, or Methodist, or Church of God, Mormonism, Jehovah Witnesses, Catholic or Protestant, AOG, or UPC, and many more, these are just man made made names of sections in the body of Christ that are not found in scripture.
Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you. Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 1 Corinthians 1:10-13
Many follow the teachings of the Vatican and the Pope, while others follow the teachings of Calvinism (John Calvin) or Arminianism
(Jacobus Arminian) while others align themselves with Martin Luther, and believe and teach these peoples doctrines.
There is one doctrine; the doctrine of Christ.
There may be many teachings on many subjects within the framework of the Doctrine of Christ.
The New Testament is where we can find what Christ Jesus taught His disciples and the things His apostles taught the Church.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matthew 28:18-20
- teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you
Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
1 Timothy 4:16
