Question? Why is there SO MANY different beliefs among Christians?
There shouldn’t be, BUT the reason that there is, IS BECAUSE not all hold to “Thus Saith the Lord” or to sound doctrine.
Take Notice of 1 Corinthians 1:10 which speaks of the basis for DOCTRINAL UNITY is laid upon.
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Take Note of the five points mentioned…
– Speak the SAME THING.
Titus 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine.
– There be NO DIVISIONS.
Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
– Be PERFECTLY JOINED together.
Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
– In the SAME MIND.
Philippians 1:27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.
– In the SAME JUDGEMENT.
2 Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions (doctrine) which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
When one or more of these points are compromised or denied it is NO WONDER that there is SO MUCH confusion and divisions (different teachings) among christians.
When the Scriptures are denied because of conviction, Doctrine is compromised for popularity, and Sound Teaching for so called unity you have what I call “The recipe for doctrinal Confusion” in all truthfulness a spiritual monstrosity in reality.
In order for christians to have IMPACT upon this Sin Soaked, Bent for Hell world the unsaved MUST SEE “The truth of God’s Word” ESPECIALLY and MOST IMPORTANTLY the Gospel.
It BEHOOVES every believer to heed to the words of Titus 2:1… But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine, which will place them in compliance with 1 Corinthians 1:10… Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
