These problems have caused the following
difficulties among Christians :
A) The New Testament does not explain
clearly the organization that Christ established to run His Church or the specific Priesthood 1 responsibilities
of each office. Because of this there are now over 20,000 different denominations, each claiming authority from God, and each organizing their church in a different way.

“ For all seek their own [ doctrine ], not the things which are Christ’s.” Philip. 2:21

 
     
 

B) These denominations claim that
“ God is Incomprehensible,” allowing
them tremendous leeway in their
interpretations and teachings, creating
great confusion and controversy.

“. . . I . . . beheld your devotions, . . . TO
THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom
therefore ye ignorantly worship, Him
declare I unto you. And the times of this
ignorance God winked at [ disregarded ] ;
but now commandeth all men everywhere
to repent. ” Acts 17:23, 30

 
 

 

C) Members of these Christian churches can
believe in any creed or doctrine they choose,
claiming it is supported by Biblical Scripture
even if it is not. This also allows them to
belong to any church that suits their life
style. This has happened despite the Biblical
Scriptures that state that “ straight is the
gate and narrow is the way that leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:14
