Why won't the church unify

Eph. 4 says we are to all come into the unity of the faith but it seems like a new division (denomination) starts every week. Why?

ANSWER #3 of 19

Christians,

You refer to what is commonly known as 'Paul's letter to the Ephesians' (an unstructured and desperately divided church, by the way).

This letter has been accepted by the (Catholic) church authorities during the last part of the second century as a work by Paul and was thus inserted in to the modern biblical format.

However, the claim of Paul's authorship can be strongly disputed on the basis of inconsistent vocabulary and style of the original text (use of hapaxlegomena) and was most likely written by an impersonator during the post-apostolic era, using the name 'Paul' as a pseudonym.

I also recall that some of the faithful who post entries on this site have the opinion that the catholic religion is hardly a real religion (please spare me the embarrassment of asking me to quote).

Apparently, the source of your doctrine (Paul's letter), as well as your trust in its authoritative contributors (the Roman Catholic Church) are corrupted.

Could this suggestion bear an element of the answer to the original question: "Why won't the Church unify...?"

Puglover,

Studying God's Word (with a capital W) in its entirety, and in its historical context and reference (translations, original texts, etc), is the quickest way to drive a person in to atheism.
