In Matthew 16:18, Jesus Christ said, “I will build my church.” He did not say that there would be different denominations or sects. He certainly did not say that there would be conflicting beliefs and doctrines.
“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” (Eph. 4:4-6). The Church Christ established in a.d. 31 was not divided. Yet, religion today is a mass of confusion—with hundreds of different sects and denominations that all claim the title of “Christianity.”
