I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 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. Ephesians 4:1-6
Modern day Christianity has over 40,000 different denominations, do you think this is Biblical? Absolutely not, the Apostle Paul says here “There is One Body, and One Spirit” The Body he is referring to the Church, the Body of Christ. There are no multiple bodies of Christ, there is only One Lord Jesus Christ and One Body of Christ. Now I know every denomination will claim to be the “true” Church, this shows the pride of the flesh, the worldliness, the man-made religion. The only people who are in the Body of Christ are those who are Born Again through Christ and the Holy Spirit (John 3), all of your man-made traditions are meaningless and filthy rags in the eyes of God
There is one God the Father, there is One Lord Jesus Christ, and there is One Holy Spirit. They are not the same, but three seperate. When we say God is Triune, we are not saying they are all the same personhood, Father,Son, and Holy Spirit are all separate yet share the same One essence of the Godhead. Often people who reject the Trinity, don’t even understand the Trinity, as Jesus Christ said “Baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19)
There is only One Hope and that’s through Jesus Christ (John 14:6) There is no other hope for salvation in this world except Christ. All other religions or ideologies are false and lead to the broad road to Hell. Why? Because we are all sinner (Romans 3:23) and there is no other solution for you sin except the blood of Christ (Romans 6:23) No other religion or leader can pay for the penalty of your sin, only the sinless Lamb of God, is worthy enough to do this.
There is only One Lord, Jesus Christ. The Biblical word for Lord means Master, there is only one King of Kings Jesus Christ. Every Knee will bow and tongue will confess one day that Jesus is Lord! Every knee, that means everyone that ever existed including atheists, muslims, buddhists, ect everyone who denied Christ one day will have to bend their knee and look Jesus in the eye and give an account of their life! Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords!
There is only One Baptism? I believe Paul is talking about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, as Jesus said “Unless you are Born Again you will not see the Kingdom of Heaven” (John 3:3) You need to be baptized by the Holy Spirit to be saved, you can be dunked in water a million times, but if you never repent of your sins, if you never received Jesus Christ as Lord in your heart, you can’t be saved!
Finally there is only One True God, our Heavenly Father! While the world continually tries to create it’s own false gods, there is only One God, Creator of the Heavens and Earth, only One God you were made in the image of, only One God who holds the key to life and death, Only one God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen!
