Why must there be various denominations?

by Theodore Wright

The existence of various denominations with slightly varying doctrines disturbs many people even if they preach the same basic gospel. They think that if there were just one church denomination for everyone, the whole world would become a better place. If this were the case, God would do it. However, He doesn’t. Why not? Because disaster would result instead. Christ’s true church is indeed ONE, yet it is NOT one denomination. Yet this matter changes when Christ returns.

There used to be just one language in the world when one tower of Babel built. Did the people obey God’s command to populate the world and go across it. NO! They just stayed in Babel to build the tower. It was not until God confused the languages, then they went out in order to find people whom they could understand and be understood by.

“So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them:
“Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.”
– Genesis 9:1 (NKJV)


Today, God set matters with a multitude of denominations, preventing them all from being incorporated into one denomination to be swallowed up as one “super-cult” which would cause all Christendom to be made, resultantly, apostate.

“For there must also be factions among you,
that those who are approved may be recognized among you.”
– 1 Corinthians 11:19 (NKJV)


Yes, there are some cults out there but the devil has defeated those churches already to successfully get them to depart from faith in God solely through His Son Jesus Christ. Some churches, but it is not every church. More churches later do depart from faith in Jesus, yet new churches also begin. The devil’s pitchfork just cannot triumphantly stab all the churches, and most certainly not in one shot.
