Chapter 15
Denomination

                       DENOMINATION

    We are too busy arguing on which Christian denomination is the correct one to believe in.  The Christian people no matter what you believe, has been called out many years ago in the book of second Chronicles chapter seven verses fourteen, It is written; if my people which called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will heal their land.

    So much wisdom is written in the bible that God has left to us.  I do wish that I was raised in church.  So much knowledge is in church. It appears that we are leaning to the pleasures of flesh rather than the pleasure of spirit.  A man by the name of Judas was fooled by the pleasures of flesh as well.  America now seems to be greedy just like he was.  Is money as valuable as freedom? 

    Religion is manmade based on the understanding of the bible.  So many people have their own opinion about the way it should be, but you need to ask yourself.  Is your way good enough or correct?  Most people say that church is filled with a bunch of hypocrites and judgmental people.  The kind of people that think they are all better than you.  Well that is very true.  No matter where you go in life you will always get that kind of behavior.   

    I am very lucky to have been around good Christians that knew the bible well enough to correct you when you are wrong.  I don’t like it and they have to prove it.  That is because I have made the mistake of believing mans word rather than Gods.  I usually have a bible around.  I don’t trust many people.  Trust is very hard to get and easily taken away.  There is many sayings that people think are from the bible but are not.  You hear them from preachers, Sunday school teachers and so on.  That is why it is a very good idea to read it and study it for your own benefit.

    Sometimes people will quote a verse and leave out a word on accident.  They might not mean to but it happens.  Even if it is only one word it could turn that totally around.  It is worded that way for a reason.  People will also use the words in the bible to benefit for themselves on purpose.

    Going to a Christian church that reads from the bible along with teaching you from it is pure wisdom and knowledge that I thirst for.  In the bible God tells you about false prophets in many parts of it all the way through it, pretty much.  One place has it worded so any man can figure it out.  Including a man like me that has been wacked in the head so many times that has to use my picture I.D. to give my name.   It is listed in Mathew chapter 7 verses 15.  Jesus Christ said, “Beware, of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”   The bible warns you about false teachers all through it.  How would know that the teacher is teaching in the correct way if you don’t study it yourself.  That is only one of the reasons out of many that going to church is good.

    The way I look at it is, giving you the ammunition to defeat the many temptations of devil.  Read Matthew chapter 4 verse 1-11.  When Jesus Christ was led up by the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil now Jesus Christ used what was written in the bible.  That shut him up.  God arms you with Satan slugs.  He can’t mess with you incase God lets him.  When you get tempted that is a test by God to see were you will stand.  When you get tested you have to deny your own self.  That really is hard to deny the simple pleasures in life.  But that shows him how much he can rely on you. 

    Being a Christian is not as easy as some think.  Most think it is a get out of jail free pass and go on with their everyday life.  There are those who think they have eternal life for just accepting the name; they continue on using foul language, fornicating, drinking, you know living the night life.  If you are truly excepting the gift of eternal life and you are still giving in to your desires. Then you are ignoring the Holy Spirit that dwells inside of you.  The Holy Spirit is the comforter that Jesus Christ has left us to help guide us through the hard trials and tribulations in life.  That is the real teacher.  Man has made it so you will have to do what they think in order to be saved.  You need to listen to the Holy Spirit not to man.

    Now Christ and his apostles have told us at least 9 or 10 times about some that claim they are of God but are posers.  The one passage in the bible that got my attention the most was in the book of Matthew chapter 7 verse 22.  It is written, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demons in your name. And done many wonders in your name?

    “And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness!”  Christ and his apostle and disciples have told us several times.  There are those who have given the Christen walk up so that they will fit in with everybody else.  Some say nobody is perfect and continue the practice of the worldly ways. 

    What does he mean practice?  If you are practicing, then you are trying to perfect whatever you are practicing.  The word trying that is what he wants to see you do.  Walking the perfect walk as he did will take a great deal of practice.  If you are a sports fan like me.  You as an individual will need practice in order to be the best, correct.  Just because you have talent won’t make you succeed.  You can have all the talent in the world at something.  If you don’t put it to practice then what ever talent is, it is no good.

    You can argue all day long about the meaning of chapters and the verses.  The point that was being made is quite simple.  You can spend every day for the rest of your life in church.   But if you don’t believe in Christ as lord and savior, then you will go to hell.  Out of all the stupid ideology’s that man has made.  Would you take theirs over God’s?  The choice is yours.  I chose to do what was written in the book of John chapter fifteen verses four, “Abide in me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.”

    A little Luke logic one o one, take God’s word and not mans.  The instructions are made so easy even I can figure it out.  Another word he is the only way you will ever be sustained in life.  Why take mans word?  You might achieve all worldly things but that’s it.  They will fade away just like the world as we know it.
