…Protestants hold that the Church of Christ is made up of people who believe in Christ but are scattered in different denomination?
In Claiming that man can find salvation in any of the Protestant churches or denomination that allegedly make up Christ’s Church, Protestant lecturer Loraine Boettner, in a way, contends that the body or Church of Christ is divided into these seperate groups whose names, beliefs, and practices differ from one onother
“The great proportio of Protestant denominationdo not claim to be the only true church, but readily and gladly acknowledge that salvationis to be found in any church where the Gospel is faithfully preached…. Whether called Baptist, Methodists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, or what not, they all belong to one body, the church of Christ,…”(Loraine Boettner. roman Catholicism.pp.37-38)
BUT ACCORDING TO the Bible, the true Church of Christ is not divided into independent churches of denomination with differing names and beliefs. Rather, it is a single body or organization having one spirit, and one baptism:
“So that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.” (I Cor. 12:25, New International version)
“Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.” I Cor. 12:27, NKJV)
“Thereis one bodyand one Spirit, just as you were called in onehope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, anoe baptism.”(Eph. 4:45,lbid.)
