Why is it that today so many Christians follow so many different denominations?

"..Because they had not obeyed my laws but had rejected my decrees and desecrated my Sabbaths, and their eyes lusted after their father's idols. I also gave them over to statutes that were not good and laws they could not live by." Ezekiel 20:24-25

Many people say that they choose to follow God their own way, or that it doesn't matter which day of worship exists or how God is followed as long as we have God in our hearts. However, through the Bible we can even clearly see, it isn't because God is love that people are following many different ways, rather because they disobeyed God, they in turn were handed over to doctrines that cannot give them eternal life.

Who is their father that God mentions in that verse?

"Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him." John 8:44

Those who have idols and desecrate the Sabbath day (Saturday) are following lies.

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of the world rather than on Christ." Colossians 2:8

Sabbath day is a law of God which was changed to Sunday (a traditional day of the worship of the Sun God kept by the Romans). This day is a basic principle of majority of Christian churches, however, God refers to it as hollow and deceptive philosophy.

Many may try to argue that they've seen miracles and cures and great things happen in the very churches that keep Sunday worship, but who's "miracles" are they really? Sunday worship is going against the laws of God which tell us to Remember the Sabbath day. (Ex 20:4) Can we just choose whether or not to keep God's laws correctly and expect to be with God?

"The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believe the truth but delighted in wickedness." 2 Thess 2:9-12

"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel - which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!" Galatians 1:6-8

Though it seems as though it's okay to have so many different denominations and ways to follow God. In fact, the Bible clearly tells us that if ANY other doctrine or gospel is kept other than what Christ taught us, we will be condemned. This is a very serious message that apparently a lot of people overlook, I myself included.

Why would Apostle Paul feel it necessary to state that even if an angel from heaven were to preach a different gospel, do not conform to it? THis means that, even though people may seem to be following GOd or to be from God, if their teachings are not from Christ, then destruction awaits them also.

"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve!" 2 Corinthians 11:13

That is why, God already prophesied that Satan would be the one to change the laws of God. How else would this be possible unless done in the very place that people THINK they are worshiping God.

"He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws." Daniel 7:25

Then, what are Christ's teachings?

* Sabbath day is Saturday the Seventh Day of the Week. (Ex 20:4, Luke 4:16)
* Passover is the Way to receive Forgiveness of Sins, Eternal Life (Matt. 26:17)
* Feasts of God (Leviticus 23; Acts 2:1; Jn 7:1-14; Lk 22:13)
* Women should wear veils during worship (1 Corinthians 11:5)
* We have a Heavenly Mother (Rev 22:17; Rev 21:9; Gal 4:26)

Christ kept all of these things and also testified to them. If we follow other teachings or doctrines that are not found amongst these, then they are not of Christ. If they are not of Christ then they cannot give us Salvation. That is why, although many different denominations and doctrines exist today, Christ is testified to appear once again to bring back Salvation and every teaching of Christ.

Christ Ahnsahnghong came as the second coming of Jesus to bring back the feasts of God and every teaching of Christ. (Hebrews 9:28; Micah 4)

"If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice - nor do the churches of God." 1 Cor 11:16

We cannot fall into the traps of Satan that are set everywhere. God is love and wants to give us eternal life, but if we disobey God's laws, the only thing we will face is destruction.

"We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one." 1 John 5:19

We all want to be called Children of God, then in order to do so, we must follow God's way, not the ways and basic principles of this world.
