Right Religion
« on: Fri Aug 26, 2011 - 19:22:37 »
There are many religions, but many professing Christians have a religion without Christ, so it cannot properly be called Christian.  It thus appears to be only another religious innovation by men.  See the following description:

"Sometimes we know of people looking for "the right church for me"; and some souls say they cannot find a church. The reason many people cannot find a church, is that they don't know what they are looking for, and there is no "right church for me". There might be a religion "for me", but the biblical church is right for everyone who will have it as God gave it.

The church in the Word of God is all the true believers in Christ in the world, and these real Christians in a locality is all the saints found there. It surely doesn't matter what seems "right for me", because the church is of God and not some place that is designed "for me". We need to be conformed to the church God established, and not a place that pleases self. This will only be found in the Word of God, and in rare cases such an assembly is established in various cities. God can lead one to it if they are earnest, honest, sincere, and yielded in prayer to God.  One either wants the church or a man-made religion.

One can learn about the church by reading Acts 2 and especially verse 42,  and all about the church gatherings from the beginning in the Epistles. Any other religious gathering is only a sect of men --not of God. So, one needs to study the Word of God.

There is no such thing as a church of "choice", as some say.  Actually, the word  translated as church (kuriakos  ‚Äúpertaining to God

                 2 Tim 2:15  Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
        
 


We need to get into the bible and follow God's word !

And not try to live in the past, but now !

As a Gentile.   We are now all Gentiles !

Follow who is talking and to whom, as you read !  

The bible is speaking from the past, to now , and the futer.

Actually, Gentiles of olden times who embraced the God of Israel became Israelites...right?  Today the Israelites are referred to in the secular world as Jews, since it was mostly the tribe of Judah that returned to reclaim the land and religion.  So, we have three peoples in the world ---Israelites, Gentiles, and the Church of God.  The Jews (Israelites) today must come on the same ground as Gentiles to be saved, for their religion and priesthood were done away at the cross ---fulfilled in Christ, the only sacrifice.  The orthodox Jews today have no sacrifice, thus no salvation.

for more understanding..

       Rom 5:1  Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Rom 5:2  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Rom 5:3  And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
Rom 5:4  And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
Rom 5:5  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Rom 5:6  For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Rom 5:7  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
Rom 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Rom 5:9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.


May I also say there is a past  - before Christ
But now   - we who are all now Gentiles
Time to come -  after the calling away
Things were different in each one ...............

         
         Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast.
