    His intent?
    Paul dealt with that concern in the NT...it would seem though that denominations have become the ACCEPTED version of what was then considered a problem in the body..division has become sanitized...

    Jesus had stern words for those who hold to sectarianism.

    Can anyone remember the name of the church or ministry organization that Jesus started?

    There obviously were different groups in Jesus day. He did not condemn.

    He has something to say about sectarianism for sure.

    Mark 9:38-39

    Jesus Forbids Sectarianism
    38 Now John answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.”

    39 But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. 40 For he who is not against us is on our side.



    1 Corinthians 1:10

    Sectarianism Is Sin

    10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.



    1 Corinthians 3:1-8

    Sectarianism Is Carnal

    3 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? 4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?

    Watering, Working, Warning
    5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
