Many Christians think that "there is one God, and it doesn't really matter where and with whom to go to salvation". For somebody it doesn't matter whether church is Catholic or Orthodox, others also consider protestant denominations, Baptists... Others go much further - new age, scientology... They may say: "Today I'm in one church, tomorrow I'll be in another".
Does it really don't matter which church or group you belong to? Or is it enough to "only believe in Christ" with no difference in what church or sect?
Why during His prayer before the compassion Christ a couple of times prays to Heavenly Father for His disciples: "... so that they will be united just as we are" (John 17:11-22)
Why does He say to Peter "on you I will built my church", not "churches"? And exactly to this Church He promises victory over "gates of Hades".
What models of modern schisms and sects does Bible show us? What does the Word of God say about the meaning of splits in church? What are the reasons and signs of split, and what are the consequences? How do these consequences influence on our chances for salvation?
Church is the body of Christ (Eph.1:22-23), Christians are parts of this body (1 Cor. 12:12-27). None of the parts can be outside the body - at least dead.
We'll consider possible answers to these important questions.
