Religion has sawn the body of Christ into tens of thousands of different Christian churches, denominations, and organizations with many different names. However, Jesus prayed in 17 that His body be one, even as He and the Father are one. He also wants believers to meet in His name.

There are so many organized churches that many of their names are funny. I googled “humorous names” and found these: Angel On Fire Chapel Of Peace, Church Of The First Born, Halfway Baptist Church, Cowboy Church, Original Church Of , Hell Hole Swamp Baptist Church, Fire Baptized Holiness Church Of God Of The Americas, German Baptist Brethren Conference, and Affirming Pentecostal Church International.

Babylon Bee even got in on the action by posting some pretty funny fictional names for churches: Holy Grounds (a coffee house church), Jiffy Church, Any Greek + Church, and The Church That’s All About You.

Perhaps is time to get back to Jesus’ vision for His body. Instead of identifying ourselves as a part of a fraction of the body of Christ, let’s just be part of the eternal body of Christ that is not divided into religious organizations. Let’s recognize our oneness with every Christ-bearer around the . Let’s receive anyone who has Jesus in her/him as our Christian sister or brother! Need in doing that?

    top notch article… but what can I say…
    I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly
    anything done. adreamoftrains content hosting

    Matthew 7: 21, 22 seems appropriate at this point. Using discernment is important when choosing associates for worship
