Proliferation of Churches as a matter of the moment recalls that, man, since creation is said and believed to be the body of Christ, Son of the Most High God and moreso, from the religious point of view is referred to as the Church where Christ again is known to be the Head.
Having stated so, The Matter of the Moment is, however concerned and would limit itself to the buildings set up by men as places of worship where men, women and children gather in great proximity to worship and glorify the Lord, the Creator of man and all things. The Gracious Lord, having given man the enablement to embark on such project, and man being what he is, go beyond bounds by building places of worship to include that of worship of other gods, thereby constituting themselves as demigods where they themselves could be worshipped as the Holy One.
Proliferation of Churches started from Abrahamic era at Hebron where Abram built an altar to the Lord and each of his offspring wherever one found himself in the land God gave them, did what their father, Abram did to the Lord but with something else outside what Abram divinely understood to the extent that God referred to him as a ‘friend’.
Another instance of the spread of churches in the early days of the creation as recorded in the Holy Bible, Exodus chapter 32 verse 1 and it reads: “when the people (Israelites) saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered round Aaron and said, come, make us god who will go before us”.
Such flimsy excuses abound today whereby people gain grounds and break off from one church or the other to establish their own thereby giving rise to the proliferation of Churches in every nooks and crannies claiming to be the true church...
