I would offer. It would seem different points of interest used as traditions of men give us finger prints as to how we each hear God. In that way it is two walking in agreement to one perfect law of love, the gospel of peace.


Baptist’ focus on water baptism. Lutherans focus on reformation. Pentecost’s signs and wonders etc and in those different denominations more varieties just like in Revelation using 7 different denominations each one having a focus necessary for the good of all to hear what the one Spirt is saying his interpretation feely given to us. . .

It becomes why water baptism where do we find the foundation of the doctrine? The Bible informs us there must be heresies or sects among us. I believe to protect new creatures from killing each other .The foundation of paganism out of sight out of mind.

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal made of the rudiments of this world .We put on the whole armor of God.

There can be differences of tradition as long as the tradition does not make the fullness of Christ's grace denying the Lord that bought them without effect or desolate .

One thing I have discovered is the use of parables the signified language of scripture it seems to clarify much confusion


Heresy = opinion, sect, denomination , creed, private revelation ,personal commentary

1 Corinthians 11:19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

Again the sect or denomination that deny the fullness of grace by which the lord purchased them . (there are a few). That heresy is judgeble as those who still need the power of the gospel

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
What would be the "fullness of grace?"

It is what I would call payment in full signed and sealed by our deliver . Some say Jesus provided a unknown remnant of grace to all but one called a queen of heaven .She alone is said to have received its fulness others must continue to wonder, wonder, wonder not coming to the end of faith, belief, even after the breath there last breath its wonder wondering.

Yanno in the church of the body of Christ there are too many divisions as we cannot all agree on the same things. Thats a people problem, not a scriptural one.

the heading of the post caught my eye

Many Different flavors of Baptist there are more Baptist than you can begin to number. in the end the name tag will not get us to heaven or do we worship the name over the door. granted we have those if your not their flavor your in the wrong one. i like what a old time preacher man use to say the name tag will either fall of going up or burn off going down.​

There is a Queen of Heaven in the Bible, but this is a false Goddess worshipped by the Assyrians. (Jer 7:18, Jer 44:17, 25). The Israelites worshipped the Queen of Heaven as first mentioned in (2 Kings 17:16) about the time that the Northern Kingdom was carried away by the Assyrians.

I would agree the same queen entity named differently than the assumed queen of heaven today or called strange woman .

It shows the fathers a law of men made all things written in the law and prophets (sola scriptura) without power. And saw no evil in setting up another source of faith as a teaching master to lord it over the non-venerable ones.. In effect their law declared . . . We will not hear the understanding of sola scriptura But rather we do whatsoever we heard through what the grapevine says .

The abomination of desolation kings in Israel. In the end of the matter making the worlds of God without effect .and seeing no evil as a result of God sending a strong delusion to believe the laws of the fathers.

Jeremiah 44:16-17 A s for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will not hearken unto thee. But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.

A higharchy of men seen
. . fathers, our kings, and our princes.
