John said to him, “Teacher, we saw a man casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he was not following us.”
But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him; for no one who does a mighty work in my name will be able soon after to speak evil of me.
For he that is not against us is for us.
Denominational christianity did not start today. Somehow, humans have always and will continue to seek exclusivity from a catholic God.
Instead of spending time deciding who is with us or against us based on our doctrines, let us focus more on our journey. The purifying of thoughts, words and deeds is lifelong and the best signal to our belief.
Salvation will not be dependent on the crowd we are in. Each of us will answer for our intentions and actions.
Leave judgment to God. None of us are worthy in our thoughts, words or deeds to pass judgment.
Show mercy to others, just as you are continually shown mercy.
Avoid comparison. If we were created to compare, we would not have been created uniquely.
