In Christianity there are many diverse beliefs and denominations which include Pentecostals, apostolic faith, 7th day Adventists, and Jehovah witness amongst others. Some believe we should not eat certain foods, some say a certain day should be esteemed more than the other, some don’t believe in celebrating festive periods. Others include prohibition from wearing certain clothes, jewelleries amongst others (more reference in Romans 14). Rom 14: 17 “for the kingdom of GOD is not meat and drink; but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost”
Whichever belief we may have as Christians, we should not judge our fellow Christians based on our different beliefs or values. No belief is superior to the other; that someone doesn’t consent to your belief does not make yours superior or inferior. Rather we should see ourselves as one as long as we believe in GOD and our LORD Jesus Christ.
Christianity is more of a personal relationship with GOD. At the end of the day, GOD will not judge us based on our denominations but on our personal relationship with GOD. Rom 14:12 – “so then every one of us shall give account of himself to GOD”
In conclusion, GOD is a GOD of diversities not divisions. That there are diverse beliefs even in Christianity does not mean that we should be divided. As someone rightly said “what we belief may divide us but in whom we belief should unite us”.
1 Corinthians 14:33 – “For GOD is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints”
