Can you imagine the apostle Paul convening an interdenominational  convention? It might look something like the following.


1. Preaching session, by Hymenaeus and Philetus. Their Bio:Timothy 2:17-18...Hymenaeus and Philetus...18 who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and have overthrown the faith of some. (NKJV)

2. Message on Christian giving, by Ananias and Sapphira. Their Bio: Acts 5:1-3 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. 2 And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles' feet. 3 But Peter said,"Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? (NKJV)

3. Seminar given by a representative from, The Jerusalem Judaizers for Christ. Their Bio: Galatians 2:3-4 Yet not even Titus who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised. 4 But this occurred because of false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus,that they might bring us into bondage), (NKJV)

4. Workshop on preaching the gospel truth as a ministry for Jesus, by the Cretans. Their Bio:"Titus 1:11-12 ....teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain. 12 One of them, a prophet of their own, said, "Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons." (NKJV)

Paul would have never tolerated an interdenominational convention.

Paul said, Romans 16:16-17...The churches of Christ greet you. 17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. (NKJV)

Contemporary believers in Christ note those who cause divisions by teaching multiple ways to become saved, and offend them by teaching things contrary to Scripture, and then invite them to participate in interdenominational conventions as preachers and teachers.

Paul said those who pervert the gospel should be accursed. (Galatians 1:6-9) Today's Christians say those who teach doctrine contrary to Scripture should be invited to preach and teach as brothers in Christ.
