Title: Beyond Denominations


Author: Edmiston, John



Why Are Denominations Being Ignored? Why do governments and industry prefer local area networks of churches to denominations? Why are missionary candidates often wary about joining denominational missions? Why are Christian schools and hospitals increasingly choosing to associate in interdenominational networks rather than along denominational lines? Here are a few of the more obvious reasons: The Bible clearly promotes unity over disunity and denominations are increasingly being seen as an inferior way of being Christian. This perception is held by Christians and non-Christians alike. Cooperation is the preferred metaphor and mode of being. Denominations in Australia mainly have their origins in ancient disputes in England, Europe or America. Disputes that happened before Australia was founded and which we want no part of. The "walls" between denominations are artificial to most Australians. Unfortunately strong minded individuals and groups within the church perpetuate old disputes and kept sectarianism alive.
