Why So Many Denominations?
Oddly enough, it's because Christians spend so much time emphasizing what the New Testament doesn't. The apostles eloquently urge us to worship Christ. And we argue about forms and rituals instead of simply worshiping Him from overflowing hearts.
This is no new development. Jesus spoke to the religious leaders of His day, and to those in all ages, when He said, " ' "In vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men" ' " (Mark 7:7, NKJV).
The vision of the four horsemen in the book of Revelation reveals the condition of the Christian church from the era of the apostles to the end of time. Much of this time period has already passed. What does the future hold?
