In a world overflowing with disinformation, whether that be with media outlets, government indoctrination centers (i.e. government schools) and within mainstream Christianity; agents of ill repute dominate the ebb and flow of social development. This has been achieved through the social programming of the youth and it is the root cause for the abandoning of independent thought. It can be clearly observed in our present-day environment, as the regurgitation of knowledge so-called has decimated the human race and this has mentally imprisoned humanity, as God’s absolute truth is so elusive to them.
Nowhere, is this more problematic then in the identity of the Christian church. The diversity of doctrines being propagated to ill-informed audiences, has been so successful that their efforts, have fractured the individuality of the Lord’s church and as many have and continue to depart “the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” A self-centered society that relies upon subjectivism and recoils in offense to truth, is without question, won over by those who tickle their ears. The apostle Paul said, “O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord” (Acts 13:10), which perfectly illustrates society in the 21st century.
There is only one Christian church and that church is only described in the New Testament. So, with this one church, comes one teaching, and one way to properly obey the gospel plan for salvation. The modern definition of church has been relegated to a structural building and not the biblical description of “the” church. If you (the reader) self-identify as a Christian and have not asked the question, “does my modern-day church obedient the biblical pattern?” Does your church’s doctrine parallel with the whole guidelines of God’s teaching? Those desiring heaven, must remain watchful and the devil having perfected his craft, of convincing some they are saved, when in fact they are not!
Properly obeying the instructions for biblical salvation, are as follows:
- You Must Hear the Word of God – Romans 10:17
- You Must Believe that Christ Jesus is the Son of God – John 8:37
- You Must Repent, Changing one mindset – Acts 17:30
- You Must Confess Jesus Before Men – Matthew 10:32
- You Must Be Baptized for the Remission of sins – Acts 2:38
- You Must Remain in Obedience – 1 Timothy 4:16
If your church does not have its origins in Jerusalem on the first Pentecost day following the resurrection of Christ Jesus, you are not in Jesus’ church. All faiths and practices not found in the New Testament, place you outside of Christ and the principles by which Christ’s church is governed, derives from the New Testament, alone!
