“Why so many denominations if there is only one God? So many “different” interpretations, whose to say which one is right?”
“God took 3 people to a wall. He had one tennis ball laid in front of them. He told them whoever could hit this wall has secured my love.
The first threw the ball way into the air at a 90 degree angle and hit the wall. The second took a pitchers pose and whipped the ball at the wall. The third took his time calculating the distance between him and the wall and decided to bounce it on the floor just once. It hit the wall.
The 3 men began to argue about which ones way was right. The first argued he was gentle. The second argued he used all his strength. The third argued he took his time to calculate the perameter.
God came back to the men as they argued and simply said,
“I never said which so ever way would secure my love. Only that you secure it by using the ball to hit the wall.”
Roman 9:16 16 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
