There is no doubt order in the bible, God gave us the 5 fold ministry, and he gave us the body.
He says to do all things decently and in order.
But in the sense of having a specific man made system, to were a denomination is formed, it is just not found in the bible, about God creating such a thing.
He formed a body to be an organism.
And we are called to love one another, and if things worked by that principal, which love also requires us to love his ways, then everything would fall into place.
Just show me one scripture were God commanded that a denomination be formed?
There is no command to start a denomination, but the early churches had oversight by the Apostles, so in that sense, they were connected.
Yes Butero, I totally agree with that.
There was oversight, and they were connected, and it was an oversight, to were yes they oversaw how the churches were doing, corrected things needed correction, and so forth, but through a spirit of care for the churches.
They sought to walk in this type of oversight duty, from a genuine heart, to were they actually cared for people, it was not ritualistic, just going through the motions, but it was real.
