• No I would think His intention was to more unify different sects of Judaism. But of course He knew that different interpretations and practices of the same thing can lead to different sects.

      He didn't come to fix a broken system. He showed that by his illustration here: (Mark 2:21, 22) Nobody sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old outer garment. If he does, the new piece pulls away from the old, and the tear becomes worse. 22 Also, no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost as well as the skins. But new wine is put into new wineskins.? He knew that the Jews as a whole would reject him: (Isaiah 53:2, 3) He will come up like a twig before him, like a root out of parched land. No stately form does he have, nor any splendor; And when we see him, his appearance does not draw us to him. ?3 He was despised and was avoided by men, A man who was meant for pains and was familiar with sickness. It was as if his face were hidden from us. He was despised, and we held him as of no account.
  • 12-07-2016 Jesus was a Jew speaking to Jews. He never said anything about sects, even though several existed even then. The bible mentions the word 'religion' four times and all four emphasize that it is made up by men telling each other what to do.
  • NO. He preached to the Jews...and he WAS change their ways...Saying that all the old ' covenants ' were no longer valid. And that there was a NEW system on the way...that they should tell others about...(Matthew 28:19, 20) Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.
  • I believe Jesus wants all the various Christian denominations to unite as one in His Name.

      In a simple scenario as traffic cannot have multiple different laws...Same with God's laws...
  • No, that is man's doing.
  • NO. There is only ONE way to please Jehovah God...HIS way...And his standards are in writing... in the Bible/...and as taught by Jesus. (Mark 7:9) Further, he said to them:
  • No, it wasn't His intention. He knew it would happen though. Why do so many different religions claim to be Christian? False prophets have corrupted Christianity and have used it to further their own interests. As Jesus foretold, they present themselves as his
  • In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus stated:
  • As the new Adam He came to establish a new reality---a new relationship between God and his creation. But, as before, participation and change is voluntary (free will). I wasn't there when God created the world, so I'm not sure about His intentions; but He obviously tolerates it.
  • In short no. There is one truth one body and one mind. Anything that strays from catholic doctrine is a false one. There are many sects and cults now and this is due to disobedience not because it was Gods will
    • pugwashjw65
      Catholic doctrine Eh!...So why does the Catholic system disobey Exodus 20: 4,5 ???? All its statuary ?
  • Jesus, also known as Rabbi Yeshua, is fictitious. Christianity and other monotheistic programs are used as tools to keep people from real spiritual knowledge, and the power in the hands of those at the top. Satan is not "evil" as depicted in the Bible, and He and the other Gods (as in the Greek Gods etc) love humanity. The Bible defames them and calls them "demons", and people are told to stay away from them at all costs. Learn the TRUTH:
  • No. This is made clear in how aggressive people can sometimes become when discussing the Bible or beliefs. If we were to look back at what Jesus taught in Matthew Chapters 5-7, Jesus taught others the benefits of humility, patience, love, and forgiveness. These are all qualities that if properly applied to our personal lives, we would have less problems in the world today. Why though can't we have that even if we all supposedly have the same goal ultimately? Well the problem is that we don't. Notice what the Bible says at Hebrews 4:2 which says: "For we have had the good news declared to us also, even as they also had; but the word which was heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who did hear." If we are not united in our faith we simply cannot be united as people. If concern over who is right takes place over what God requires, there will never be a basis for which unity can develop. Jesus teachings were meant to benefit all people no matter their nationality. The only thing that has resulted from various religions is division. Jesus still said that the good news would still be preached and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14) So no matter what we believe, if it is not in harmony with God's purpose which is made clear throughout the Bible, we will learn when the time comes whether our worship was acceptable to him or not. We have a clear warning from Jesus at Matthew 7:21-23 which says: "Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’ Jesus here shows that there will be those who render worship that will be unacceptable to God and with good reason. So the question become now, How can we identify true worship or religion?

      Good answer.
  • Paul made it clear at Ephesians 4:1-6 that there is one truth and one way to worship acceptably to God. The scriptures that separate false from truth is the application of John 13:34,35 and Matthew 22:37. Very few apply this kind of love in their lives. The two world war and the religious establishments involved in them show most religions do not apply these two scriptures and there are others. It is not what we conceive of what is right, but what God says is right as stated at John 4:23,24. God is looking for those who worship in truth according to the scriptures.
  • No that's why he establish Prophets on the earth to lead and guide us.
    • pugwashjw65
      Not all ' prophets' were such was Hananiah, who statedthat the Jewish people should not be subject to Nebuchadnezzar...Jeremiah said they
    • pugwashjw65
      WOULD remain in slavery... Hananiah was presumptuous...and died for it. Jeremiah 28:: 15-17
    • Linda Joy
      Then he was not a true prophet.
