When Were Modern "Denominational Churches" Established?
We can readily see and understand why the true "church of Christ" is the "oldest" religion and church in the world when we compare its date of "establishment" with modern denominational churches. Consider the establishment of the Lord's church in 33 AD, as recorded in Acts 2, with the historical date of the establishment of "modern" denominations.
We can see that all of these "modern" sectarian and denominational churches were established many "centuries" after the "beginning" of the New Testament "church" in Acts 2. Denominations cannot possibly compare with the reality, age and establishment of the true New Testament "church" in AD 33. Denominational churches that have built their doctrinal system on the "creeds" and "traditions" of men cannot possibly compare with the "true" doctrinal system of the Lord's "church" that is established only on the teaching of the New Testament.
Remember, when the disciples carried the new covenant "gospel" to Antioch (Acts 11:19-
Certainly, in light of these new covenant "truths," we should all understand that the New Testament "church of Christ" is not composed of a thousand denominations teaching different doctrines that contradict each other as well as the New Testament. Christ's new covenant "church" is "one body" that "believes" the New Testament of Jesus Christ -
33 AD New Testament CHURCH OF CHRIST
1528 AD Lutheran church
1536 AD Presbyterian church
1611 AD Baptist church
1739 AD Methodist church
1830 AD Mormon church
1830 AD Seventh-
1866 AD Christian Science church
1900 AD Pentecostal church
If one is a member of a modern denomination -
Therefore, they are still in their sins and not saved from those past sins! What must they do?
They must leave the denomination and obey the New Testament gospel of Christ!
