The creation of man is invested with special solemnity. God first consults with divine beings other than himself (Vo1.1, P2).
The story in this chapter (Gen3) of man’s disobedience to God’s command and of his expulsion, from the garden to a life of toil is dependent upon an ancient myth… a fragment of this myth is now preserved in Vs 22” (Vo1.1, P501)…intelligent people must get free from dogmatic definition of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ and above all from obsession with the notion of sin” (Vo1.1,P502).
With reference to the story of the flood (Vo1.1 P536) it is generally recognized that this story is ultimately based upon the Babylonian myth…A universal flood….would of course be a physical impossibility.
This so called Bible” which by implication even the verbal inspiration of Gods word is the mouth-piece of some denominations. I therefore strongly share the belief of Rev. W. Braham that “God deal with individuals not with denominations. In the denominations there are tens of thousands of precious souls…who are children of God. But to separate them and segregate them…God’s word is against it” I am not writing that such names as catholic, Anglican”, Pentecostals Baptist, aghean, conite “Mennonite, etc should go. No, at least for the sake of identity, they could stay, but that’s not a passport to heaven. In other words, you can not go to heaven simply because you are a conite, a Pentecostal, a catholic, a Baptist, a latheran, or an anglican, or a Calvinist etc. sectarian disparity is undoubtedly a clear move of the devil to disunite believers and one of the strategies of the anti-christs for the scriptures say we should be one.

Have we not all one father? Has not one God created us?
Why then are we faultless to one another” Mal 2:10.
“I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word…That they may be perfectly one” Jn 17:20,23.
“He who say he is the light and hates his brother is in darkness still. He who loves his brother abides in the light” 1 Jn 4:7,11.
I beg you… that we love one another and this is love that we follow his commandments; this is commandment as you have heard from the beginning that you follow love” 2Jn 6.
Emphasizing the need for mutual love across denominational or sectarian lines. Rev. Braham also said: we are not divided…All one body, one in hope…one in charity, that’s the church of the Living God. Whether he is Methodist, or Baptists…Brother if he’s born again and filled with the Holy Ghost, he’s my brother, we are walking shoulder to shoulder”. This is the ideal approach for true believers. For the Lord said. By this all men will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another” Jn 13:13. A believer who rejects Christ’s teaching rejects the truth and the spirit of God is not in him.
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments Jn14:15.
“If a man loves me, he will keep my word and my father will love him”Jn14:23.
Here is Christ’s now commandment.
“Let no one deceive you with empty words for it is because of these things that the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience Eph 5:6.
But this spirit of fellowship, cannot be extended to the anti-christs for it is they who wish to disunite believer; but the sharing of love and fellowship is for true believers. This is the will of God. A religious writer once wrote.
“He has a will for his church. It is not God’s will that his saved children be divided and separated into sects and creeds. Jesus prayed…that we all be one as he and the father were one (Jn17:20. what a wonderful thing it would be if we would speak the same thing and see Bible unity prevail.
This is the will of God. The unity in faith is for believers not with the anti-christs nor with the false prophets for they are the peddlers of Christian disunity. So the Bible warns that we have nothing to do with the anti-christs or the heretics. The Bible warns about them:
“I appeal to you brethrens to take note of those who create dissensions and difficulties in opposition to the doctrine which you have bean taught; avoid them Roms 16:17. (Gal 1:8—9, 2 These 3:6,14 2 Jn 10).
“Therefore come out from them and be separate from them says the Lord” 2 Cor 6; 17 (Isa 52:11).
“And convince some, who doubt, save some by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh” Jd 2:2—23.
“I wrote to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of immorality or greed or is . … a reviler … not even to eat with such a one” 1 Cor 5:11. (2 Thess 3:6,1 Cor 10:20-21). “avoid stupid controversies. As for a man who is factious, after admonishing him once or twice, have nothing more to do with him…. such a person is perverted and sinful, he is self-condemned” Tit 3:9-10.
