“Societyvs Here is the mandate for dividing the church or seperating from heretics if you like.
Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Paul commands us to mark those who divide the church with a contrary doctrine than the one established by the Apostles. That means that those riding the unity band wagon who are deviating from the biblical teaching of the apostles are actually the ones dividing the church and Paul commands the body of Christ to mark them. That is to single them out and to avoid them, to not fellowship or associate yourself with them.
If you deny the divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ then sadly you are not a Christian. That also sadly makes you a heretic and one who ought to be avoided and marked. The reason is simple and that is that the teaching you would espouse concerning the divinity of Christ will destroy the faith of some, therefore you are sadly an enemy of the gospel and unless granted the grace to repent under the condemnation from the Almighty.
Thankfully as long as men have access to the holy scriptures they can avoid men such as yourself and stay on the biblical straight and narrow.
For your own well being thankfully you can also read the scriptures and by God’s mercy see the error of your heresy and repent and find mercy and salvation thru the Lord Jesus Christ.
God is to be both loved and feared so ponder well the things that you communicate about Him lest he prove you wrong and bring you into judgement.
The trinity of God is so central to the faith of christianity that to deny it is to deny christianity.
Gen 1:26-27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Arians hated the above verse so much they removed it from every alexandrain text as did the Westcott and Hort texts but the Lord has preserved His word and thankfully we read it in the King James bible.” (Paul)
