A lot of people say that denominationalism is good because you can look for a church that suits you — one that you connect with. However, the very existence of denominationalism asserts that the Bible is insufficient for our salvation.
If denominationalism is true, then all of the additions of denominations are necessary. However, this offhandedly argues that the Bible is insufficient, for we cannot find the additions of denominationalism in the Bible! The Bible plainly says that it is sufficient. Paul wrote, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16–17).
We MUST respect the sufficiency of God’s word (1 Peter 4:11). The apostle John added,“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 9-11). Make no mistake: if your denomination puts something in its structure that is not in the Bible, you do not have God! Nothing could be more serious!
The most logical approach is to go back to the Bible and follow it. This is our desire and we would love the opportunity to show you what the Bible teaches about the true sufficiency of the scriptures.
