There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism

This was published in Main by Rumitoid, but I thought perhaps some people may not see it, so here is the link. It is an "interesting" view of Christianity. https://www.onepoliticalplaza.com/t-149100-1.html

For those who do not wish to follow the link, it is quoted for you:

"Not since Christianity began has this been true, and even less so now. What are we to make of this? And as Christians we savagely dissected this, ripped it apart, in one example, with Luther and Calvin and Wesley, oh my. Putting their names on Christ's words, letting them speak for Lord of the Universe and taking credit for knowing him better than himself.

Lutherans, Calvinists, and Methodists: a slap in the face of Christ. Baptists and Catholics and thousands of other worldly- or ego-driven sects. And the pathetic thinking that maybe some bargain or compromise could be made by agreeing on certain beliefs they invented to bring Christians together. Ecumenicalism: "Concerned with establishing or promoting unity among churches or religions." Prideful bishops arguing for their stance against the same.

Christ has nothing to do with what we believe. Belief is the whole problem of Christianity. No one is to believe in Jesus, as we perceive it; we are each called to be as Jesus. Belief is of the mind and includes all the worst of us. We will never agree on what is righteous and just, true and good through belief.

When Christ said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." God is love, and "believeth on him that sent me" is love, not how long his beard is or the length of his robe. Love, not belief, is the only way for Christians to be under One Lord, one faith, one baptism--the rest is craven worldliness."
