Today is part eight of a series of our Bible study on Heaven. Today’s topic is denominations.
- Q: “Could ‘In my Father’s house are many mansions?’ mean ‘In my Father’s house are many denominations? I have never heard this interpretation until today when a friend said this is what she believes it means.”
- A: “I am sorry to disagree with your friend. You may depend upon it that when we reach the Father’s we shall have no more of denominations. Of course in our Father’s house here and now there are many denominations, but that is not the meaning of the passage cited, namely John 14:2
Editor’s note: I think this person’s friend is interpreting scripture pretty loose, based more on a opinion, or what she would like to be true. I think she needs to look at the verse in context with the rest of scripture, not just “this is what I believe, so it must be true.” As Christians, we need to be careful not the fall into that trap of using scripture to “prove” what we believe. Okay, Pastor’s rant over.
