Many People Misunderstand The Scriptures!  How About You?  Are You Sure That You Understand?

A great number of people are being misinformed by false teachers.  Perhaps otherwise good and honest people, they have allowed themselves to be misinformed.  Now, unless they learn the truth and obey it, they will be eternally lost.  Ignorance of God's law will not be acceptable in the day of judgment.

 

It is not necessary for anyone to be ignorant of God's law, because we are told in John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."  This scripture is clear.  Each of us can know what is right if we really want to know.  But it takes study on our part, rightly dividing the scriptures as taught in II Timothy 2:15.

 

Some Things Misunderstood By Many:

1. Are all "Churches" right?  Which is the new testament Church?

2. Is it necessary to attend the services of the Church?

3. Is baptism necessary?

4. Do people today have the Holy Spirit as did the Apostles?

5. Are sales and bingo all right to raise money for the Church?

6. How many are in the Godhead?

7. How often should we observe the Lord's supper?

8. What about infant baptism?

9. Are we saved by faith only?

 

Please come, visit and discuss these questions.  The scriptures are something each of us must know and obey (II Peter 1:10).  If you know something concerning the scriptures that I do not know that pertains to my soul's welfare, then I want to know it!  Don't you feel the same way?  Therefore, we need to study.  The scriptures record in Isaiah 1:18 that God spoke through the prophet to a disobedient people saying, "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord." 

 

Each of us should be interested in hearing what others have to say, and then search the scriptures to see if it is true, as did those of Berea in Acts 17:10-11

 

See what the scriptures have to say about becoming a Christian.

1. Hear The Gospel

Romans 10:14-17

2. Believe

Hebrews 11:6, Mark 16:16, John 8:24

3. Repent

Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30

4. Confess Christ

Romans 10:9-10, Acts 8:37

5. Be Baptized

Acts 2:38, Galatians 3:27, Romans 6:3-6, I Peter 3:21

 

One may join any denominational "Church", but not so with the Lord's Church.  When one has faithfully obeyed the five things actions above, then the Lord adds that individual to His Church as he did in Acts 2:47.
