Here is a question. Is it not Christ that decides not your organization or your denomination?
I ask this to all Trinity churches including Catholics, Jehovah Witnesses, and Mormons? I am nondenominational for starters. And this springs from the fact that there isn’t a named denomination in any Hebrew and or Greek writings that proclaim the need for one over the other. No church can say or even attempt to make this claim. Yet they all above claim that even if one does do all things Christ has said to do and believe on him truly as the Son of God that one can not make it to heaven or that you won’t be considered to be “just” in the sight of God(Jehovah witnesses) unless you belong to their church of thought or Organization. Now mind you the funny thing is that all will claim that the needed actions that you do daily (if you are said person listed above) and your beliefs once apart of their organization or church of thought then means you finally are in his good graces now and that it is now possible that you can receive salvation. Also remember said person has not change anything that they have been doing outside from becoming a member of their school of thought or organization. Well lets see what the bible says shall we.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:3 NASB)
“…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved…”
Confess (acknowledge) Jesus as your Lord and Saviour
“for whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved”
Umm, nope sorry Jehovah Witnesses I don’t see the words…..And be a Jehovah Witnesses and go to Kingdom Halls.
Umm, sorry Mormons I don’t see that this would include Joseph Smith in the scripture at all. No words that include…..”oh , yeah don’t forget to believe on Joseph Smith or Christ becomes useless”.
Umm, and sorry trinity people. No mention of the word “trinity” or the concept of the meaning were even found in any of the writers of the bible( in fact the bible books were completed hundreds of years before even the thought pattern of such a concept was even thought of and way longer than that for the word to be created) . So again I fell to see the words ….”oh yeah you must understand God and how He could possibly be who He is and how He works and you must believe in the trinity concept explanation of all this because having Jesus as your savior and direction in life just isn’t good enough to save you.
I could go on and on but I think you get my point. Christ will be the author and finisher of our faith, salvation and adaption to his Father’s kingdom, not man,organizations or schools of thought. He and He alone was given the authority to decide based on what He did for us. Not the ability to understand how He came to be and how it all works. Only the faith that He was the Son of God, died for our sins to save us all, and rose to provide eternal life as our mediator between God and Man(1 Timothy 2:5) is the required table of contents needed for the book of life. This is Our Lord Christ Yahushua the great Immanuel and we Thank Yahweh for His gift.
