  36. Denominationalism decried... • It is unscriptural (without scriptural support). - Acts 20.17, 28; 1 Peter 5.1-2 • It is anti-scriptural. - John 17.20-23; 1 Corinthians 1.10-13; 3.3-4; Ephesians 2.14-16; 4.4-6 • It is harmful to the cause of Christ. -“that the world may believe” John 17.21

  37. “I ask that men make no reference to my name, and call themselves not Lutherans, but Christians. What is Luther? My doctrine, I am sure, is not mine, nor have I been crucified for any one. St. Paul, in 1 Cor. 3, would not allow Christians to call themselves Pauline or Petrine, but Christian. How then should I, poor, foul carcass that I am, come to have men give to the children of Christ a name derived from my worthless name? No, no, my dear friends; let us abolish all party names, and call ourselves Christians after Him Whose doctrine we have.” - Martin Luther, 1483-1546

  38. “Would to God that all party names, and unscriptural phrases and forms which have divided the Christian world, were forgot and that the very name [Methodist] might never be mentioned more, but be buried in eternal oblivion. ” - John Wesley, 1703-1791

  39. “I look forward with pleasure to the day when there will not be a Baptist living! I hope that the Baptist name will soon perish, but let Christ’s name last forever.” - Charles Spurgeon, 1834-1892

  40. “Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”- Paul, Philippians 2.2 (KJV)

  41. “I am not praying just for these followers. I am also praying for everyone else who will have faith because of what my followers will say about me. I want all of them to be one with each other, just as I am one with you and you are one with me. I also want them to be one with us. Then the people of this world will believe that you sent me. I have honored my followers in the same way that you honored me, in order that they may be one with each other, just as we are one. I am one with them, and you are one with me, so that they may become completely one. Then this world’s people will know that you sent me. They will know that you love my followers as much as you love me.” - Jesus, John 17.20-23 (CEV)

  42. Will you come to Jesus?Now!As we stand to sing.
