Pastors, preachers, or teachers have different methods of sharing the Word of God. I, myself have indeed learned sound doctrine from some of them; even if I don't always agree with everything they say; and they are not always in accord with one another, and some, identify as Baptist, Calvinist, Methodist, Dispensationalist, etc.
It is important to know that there is but one Church; the Church of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Church of God is not made by hands nor by denominations; it is a living and breathing Church. You my beloved, are the Church. We are members of the body of Christ, and we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Our brothers and sisters are in every nation of the earth. In 1 Corinthians 12 the Apostle Paul makes a comparison between the human body and Christ, and of the members of the body to believers.
(1 Corinthians 12:25-27)
25 “That there should be no-μὴ (me)-no, not lest, in no wise, by no means) schism-σχίσμα (schisma)-rent, schism, (i.e. a split or gap ("schism"), literally or figuratively:—division, rent, schism)) in the body-σώματι (somati)-body, (metaph. The church is pictured as a body, or the body of Christ)): but that the members-μέλη (mele)-a member, limb, part of the body) should have the same care-μεριμνῶσι (merimnosi)-careful, to be anxious about:—(be, have) care(-ful), take thought)) one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer-πάσχει (paschei)-to suffer, endure, experience, (apparently a primary verb; to experience a sensation or impression (usually painful):—feel, passion, suffer, vex)), all-πάντα (panta)-all, the whole) the members suffer with it: or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now ye are-ἐστε (este)-ye are:—be, (second person plural of 'to be')) the body of Christ, and members-μέλη (mele)-a member, limb, part of the body) in particular-μέρους (merous)-individually).”
And again, In (1 Corinthians 1:10) we are told not to be divided:
10 “Now I beseech-Παρακαλῶ (Parakalo)-to call to one's side, (i.e. invite, invoke (by imploration, hortation or consolation):—beseech, call for, (be of good) comfort, desire, (give) exhort(-ation), intreat, pray) you brethren by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak-λέγητε (legete)-to lay out, say, speak) the same thing-αὐτὸ (auto)-the same), and-καὶ (kai)-and, also) that there be-ᾖ (e)-may be) no-μὴ (me)-no, not lest, in no wise, by no means) divisions-σχίσματα (schismata)-a rent, cleft, schism, (a split or gap ("schism")) among-ἐν (en)-in) you-ὑμῖν (humin)-you:—ye, you, your(-selves)): but that ye be perfectly joined together-κατηρτισμένοι (katertismenoi)-to adjust perfect, or fit thoroughly, (ethically: to strengthen, perfect, complete, make one what he ought to be) in the same mind-νοῒ (noi)-mind, will, (by implication, meaning:—mind, understanding), and in the same judgment-γνώμῃ (gnome)-mind, opinion, sentence, (i.e. (subjectively) opinion, or (objectively) resolve (counsel, consent, etc.):—advice, + agree, judgment, mind, purpose, will).”
be careful when men begin to use language outside of the scriptures, such as: "total depravity; five points of Calvinism; once saved always saved; limited atonement; irresistible grace; original sin; eternal election; unformed faith; inherent ability; unregenerate; fallen nature,"... and the such. If you consent to these (terms), then you also acknowledge to their man-made doctrines/theology as valid. Remember what the Apostle Paul said:
(1 Corinthians 2:1).
1 "And I, brethren-ἀδελφοί (adelphoi)-brethren, brothers, (i.e. (spiritual) brother, fellow Christian, fellow believer), when I came to you, came not-οὐ (ou)-no, not) with excellency-ὑπεροχὴν (huperochen)-a holding over or beyond, (i.e. with distinguished eloquence or wisdom) of speech, or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God."
And Paul also said:
"But I fear lest by any means-μήπως (mepos)-lest in any way, lest perchance, (lest somehow:—lest (by any means, by some means, perhaps)), as the Serpent beguiled-ἐξηπάτησεν (exepatesen)-to deceive greatly) Eve through his subtilty-πανουργίᾳ (panourgia)-unscrupulousness, cunning, (i.e. (in a bad sense) trickery or sophistry:—(cunning) craftiness, subtilty)), so your minds should be corrupted-φθαρῇ (phthare)-to corrupt, (properly, to shrivel or wither, i.e. to spoil (by any process) or (generally) to ruin (especially figuratively, by moral influences, to deprave):—corrupt (self), defile, destroy)) from-ἀπὸ (apo)-away from) the simplicity-ἁπλότητος (haplotetos)-simplicity, (i.e. (subjectively) sincerity (without dissimulation or self-seeking), or (objectively) generosity (copious bestowal):—bountifulness, liberal(-ity), simplicity, singleness)) that is in Christ" (2 Corinthians 11:3).
I therefore encourage you brothers, to search an verify what men teach and profess by comparing it with the word of God. Also, beware of men who say only the original manuscripts/autographs/letters are the infallible and inspired word of God, meaning, they question the authenticity/accuracy of the surviving manuscripts that bare witness to the originals.
"The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever" (Psalms 12:6-7).
