Why are there so many different churches?
Many think for the same reason there are so many different restaurants: people have different tastes.
While this is partially true in consumer driven 2011; there is also large confusion in the church regarding what we ought to be doing.
There is terrible doctrinal disunity in the church in large part due to a failure to recognize the greater commission given to the apostle Paul to us-ward in this dispensation (Eph 3:1-9).
By failing to distinguish Paul’s ministry of the mystery of Christ to all men from the ministry of the Twelve apostles to prophetic Israel, commision confusion ensues.
Divisions are created when a doctrine to Israel is combined with a mystery truth. There are hundreds of combinations of these wrong admixtures; there are hundreds of churches.
Separating prophecy and mystery promotes unity around sound doctrine. The Lord teaches us that unity any other way is not worth having.
For God’s glory,
