1. Does not every denomination or group that exists has some principles, beliefs, doctrinal positions etc that define that group, written or unwritten? 2. Does one not become a part of a specific denomination or group by stated adherence to the beliefs held by the group or denomination? 3. Is not the basis of association directly connected with the beliefs of what it means, or how to become, a Christian believer and in some cases that which they feel is the Scriptural mandate to remain in the faith? 4. Is not the very purpose of association to align oneself with men and women that agree doctrinally with not only what salvation and or the Christian walk entails, but to keep apart or insulate themselves from those that would differ from the agreed upon statement of faith or doctrinal positions? 5. If a certain group holds to doctrinal positions that are NOT a matter of salvation, and in doing so in effect cut of other brothers or sisters in Christ from being treated as an equal, how is that not showing partiality or respect of persons as directly forbidden by Scripture itself? Jas 2:1 ¶ My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. Jas 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. How would such an attitude of self-segregation be not precisely what the Apostle Paul condemned as having a party spirit? 1Co 1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? I would like to see every believer on this list would be to make a list of absolute essential doctrinal beliefs you feel are necessary for fellowship. We could then query each other if in fact they are all essential for salvation and see if we are walking in unity and love as the Scripture commands us to or if in fact we are guilty of creating a schism in the body of Christ.
