WOUNDED PEOPLE [91a]

LEGALISM CULTS SECTS

Recently I came across a web site which seemed to be dedicated to some idea about love. It was very down on Christian “things” and as such, left a negative influence regarding truth.

It appears this person was brought up in some fundamental Pentecostal church, and I realised after, that this was why he was so “down” on churches, and why he was in need of expressing his feelings.

There are many people “out there”, who have been “put through the wringer” by fundamental belief systems, which usually are extremely legalistic, and heavy with old testament content.

I am sympathetic with his pain, having some knowledge of “injured” people from Christadelphian as well as World Wide Church Of God religions; but there are a lot of different groups who “muddy the waters” of Christianity by their warped beliefs. [Mormon and JW’s to mention just two of them]

While the mainline traditional Christian churches may have a wrinkle or three to be ironed out, they are generally speaking, pretty good, that is why they are still mainline and traditional. Catholic versus Protestant is another story again, and one not to be entered into here.

[the problems described above, loosely parallel the Problems Paul encountered between Judaism and Christianity.]   (for world wide church of God, check this website “You might have grown up in the world wide church of God if…”  http://hwarmstrong.com/grown.htm#new11_20_2014   )  Need to scroll to top of page, or go to their home site on the bottom of the article.

One thought on “WOUNDED PEOPLE [91a]

  1. THERE IS ONLY ONE CHURCH OF CHRIST BY STEVE FINNELL

    There is only one church of Christ. Jesus is the head of His church. Jesus is not a head with multiple bodies.

    How do you become part of the church of Christ?

    1. Believe: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (NKJV)

    2. Repent: Acts 2:38 And Peter replied, “Each one of you must turn from sin, return to God…(The Living Bible Paraphrased)

    3. Confess: Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (NKJV)

    4. Be immersed in water: Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NKJV)

    The Lord gave the terms for pardon under the New Covenant. If you follow the terms, He adds you to His church regardless of the denominational name on the church building where you worship.

    You can join a denomination without be believing Jesus is the Son of God, however, you will not be added to the Lord’s church.

    You can join a denomination without repenting, however, you will not be added to the Lord’s church.

    You can join a denomination without confessing, however, you will not be added to the Lord’s church.

    You can join a denomination without being baptized for the forgiveness of sins, however, you will not be added to the Lord’s church.

    Romans 16:16…The churches of Christ greet you. (NKJV) The apostles Paul did not say the churches of denominations greet you. There were no denominations.

    Acts 2:47 ….And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. (NKJV) The Lord adds the saved to “THE CHURCH” he does not add the saved to the Roman Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, the Mormon Church, the Jehovah’s Witness Church, the Christian Science Church, the Baptist Church, Unitarian Universalist Church, the Salvation Army Church, the Masonic Lodge Church, the Friends Church, the Seventh Day Adventist nor any other denominational church.
