MSWord counted two hundred and "one word"s??
there is always one in a crowd...
You lose a great deal on points 1 and 2.
no i do not lose, those who do not believe lose.
a second word, there are many vulnerable people out there who have been hurt by the 'organized' church and because of that they are searching. if one is going to try to 'restore' christinaity, then they need to walk with God and not with their own desires or what they want to believe.
restoration is open to great deception by the devil because people are rejecting beliefs, and rules found in the organized church. such acts, allow for lies to enter into aperson's belief system because they cannot accept what the Bible says. they want something that tells them what they want to hear and not the truth.
to restore the church one has to do it God's way, not their own and it takes much soul searching and to already have the truth before one can even hope to begin. then they must wait for the guidance of the Holy Spirit or it is all for naught. one cannot just arbitrarily say the translations, the organized church is wrong without having God direct them.
even then they could be in a position similar to joseph smith and mohammad who claimed angels told them to start a new church/religion. then they would be tools of the devil not God. one cannot dismiss the influence or the work of the evil one for thenthey areripe for deception and in being led astray.
also, one cannot use their hurts, their anger, their hatred etc. to start a new church, for such things will allow the wrong influence and God did not say to use those items to find the truth. one has to remain with what the Bible says to get what God wants, which means using honesty ndother such characteristics that are of God.
one cannot use misguided interpretations or misapplied interpretations to guide them for then again, they would be wrong and opening the door for satan to work and destroy people's faith.
one cannot change God's word nor accept those who do nor can they place science or archaeology, etc., above what God says for then they are not of God and call Him a liar. if the so do then God is obviously not with them and their efforts and beliefs are in vain as they raise fallible, secular fields higher than Him and that is sin.
if one says they believe God then they must believe Him despite what the world says. so the task of restoration is not done in structure but in belief.
