Why is there so much division in Christianity? Have they forsaken the cornerstone like Jesus said? - Matthew 21:40-44...

I seem to have a similar view. I've tried many "Christian" Churches over the years, but could never connect. Everything was so superficial, the Bible teaching, the so called fellowship etc. None would be challenged or go near anything "controversial". I reluctantly concluded that there were very few true believers in Churches, partly because of OSAS and a "sinners prayer" that says nothing about "first counting the cost". If most Church goers were confronted with the "full gospel", they would I'm sure exclaim, "I didn't sign up for that". They have a warped view of a Jesus who would "never harm a fly", rejecting all "fear of God". I've been saying for a while that it is total hypocrisy for Churches to be still self righteously pointing the finger at the Sects, when "anything goes" within them. I'm convinced that all but a remnant will follow their pastors into the UN's world religion, almost certainly headed up by a Pope who has pledged allegiance to the UN (to "save the planet") and what he calls a "New Humanism". This would seem to be tantamount to apostasy. Ecumenical protestant leader Rick Warren preaches "deeds not creeds". In other words, forget about the divisive teachings of Jesus and His apostles. But I've found that criticizing is one thing, finding the way that is narrow is quite another. Being a believer, a true follower of Jesus sounds great. But I'm not sure if I've ever met one.

Hey Ted, I am wondering if you have managed to check out any of the other Videos on this channel? - Some of the earilest videos posted on this Channel describe a very similiar scenario to what you mentioned about the UN. Thanks for watching the video, have you come across what Jesus said about living by faith before?

@OvercomeDeath: To be honest .....I have despaired of finding fellow believers who understand the gospel as I do. I cannot go along with any of the man made "isms" on offer. I have followed several presenters for a while, only to find them "going off (the narrow path), on a tangent. If you see what I mean? And few people are genuinely open to challenge. (as I am) If you suggest two videos, I will watch/consider them. As long as you agree to genuinely consider my response.
