Excerpt:

I believe many will not have the faith to step out, to step away from the snare they are in called denominationalism. They will convince themselves that it is not so bad, and that their church or pastor does many good things.


Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above

all things, and desperately wicked: who can

know it?


What most leaders lack is faith. Let us just face the facts: you do not have the faith to put your full dependence upon the Lord Jesus Christ. You are still a child in your spiritual walk. Your god (pastor, priest, etc.) has not helped you grow as much as you think. All he is doing is keeping you as spiritual as he is, so that you will not go on and do the perfect will of God. You still have the faith of a child who can’t live without its parents; you are still a child, not a man of God or a woman for God.

You’re saying this: I am a Catholic. I am a Pentecostal. I am a Baptist. I am a Methodist. I am a _____. But this is what you mean: I am a child who needs a man, or a manmade organization, to hold me up, because my faith in Jesus is so weak I will never be able to stand alone with just Christ; I will never please God. I am a failure for the cause of Christ. I will march for Jesus only if I can point to something that is bigger than me to hold me up (as long as it’s not Jesus the Christ). Most Christian and Christian leaders have been so saturated with the blight of denominationalism that they don’t know what a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is like.


Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is

impossible to please him: for he that cometh

to God must believe that he is, and that he is

a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

John Wipf was part of the Hutterite religion for 18 years and was a member, college student, and a part time missionary in the Baptist denomination for 10 years. Other points of interest include:


Five years of theological studies (Baptist)

Mission work in Canada, Costa Rica, Panama, and Sri Lanka (Baptist)

Independent mission work in west central Manitoba, Canada (present)

Founder/CEO of a company that installs fertilizer and grain handling equipment in the prairies of Canada (present)

Husband and father of 2 boys and 2 girls, and 1 taken to heaven before birth, and 1 on the way.


John Wipf married Faith in June 2013. Our goal is to start a cattle ranch (as a retreat) to help people with their relationship with Jesus Christ and to tell people about the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Faith Wipf was born and bred a Baptist for 32 years. She then left with her “Honey Bear” John to begin their independent ministry. She is currently very busy raising four crazy, wonderful children and looking forward to waddling during the next few months. Homeschooling and the “dreaded” housework fill her days.

In the Blight of Denominationalism we cover part of our journey from religious bondage to true and free freedom in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Also covered in this book there are summaries of my study on some of the world’s renowned religions.
