This is in deep contrast with Christ’s vision of His Church as described in the Gospel of John, Chapter 17: “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word- that they may all be one- even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”Readers of this book will be challenged to read the Holy Scripture, to see for themselves Christ’s teachings about His Church, its purpose and its focus.Take this opportunity to become an agent of change: to focus on His Kingdom, beyond labels. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, invigorated by His Word, we must cut-across the walls created by Church-labels to the true doctrine of His triumphant Church- the Church Christ envisioned before He went to the cross.In his recent book The Heaven Answer Book, Billy Graham answers questions on the subjects of heaven and eternity. About the question: Will there be denominations in heaven? His answer is clear and simple: There will be no denominations in heaven, and then he adds: People organize denominations, but Jesus instituted The Church. He calls it My Church. It is written in Colossians 1:21, “And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach.”Therefore, it is not about wearing the right label. It is about a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, our Redeemer.
