The bible is clear, that the churches of Christ is the only true church spoken of in the bible. The church of Christ is the only church that worships according to New Testament scriptures, thus the church of Christ is the only true church spoken of in the bible. Romans 16:16, Matthew 16:18, Acts 20:7, Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16, Acts 2:38-47, Mark 16:16 1Corinthians 16:2, Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Timothy 3:16, John 4:24....

I wish every single Christian denomination and minuscule sect the same fate: extinction - from people leaving on an entirely voluntary non-compulsory basis.

You forgot: the Catholic Church is "the whore of Babylon", and the Pope is the Antichrist. That's what the fun folks at our Calvinistic theological college used to put in their pamphlets (back before "the Enlightenment").

Lucky for you that you weren't born in a time or place where the only god anyone knew about was one of the 39,999 (I think that's a bit of an underestimate) false ones, isn't it?

There's no such thing as a Catholic bible. The only thing the Catholics contributed to was the compiling of the 66 books in an order that God intended them to be, as the Catholics contributed nothing more than that. You should try the New King James Version, it's great for people just starting out, not implying that you are, just saying it's the best for people who have trouble understanding the scriptures, that's all.

Well I'd have to agree on that, as it's more likely higher than what I put down, so no disagreement from me on the numbers of false religious entities being higher.

Ahahaha. No, they don't all say the same things - and therein lies the problem. Every single one is different - so on what basis is yours the one out of thousands or millions that is right?

That's what you think, because they're all wrong according to the New Testament pattern of how one is to be saved, and how one must worship, but, don't take my word for it, read the New Testament for yourself, and see if I'm right, which I know that I am.

Here is the complete pattern for one must go by according to the New Testament in order to be in the church defined in the New Testament which one must be in to be in the church of the saved by complying to the Father's will he has given us all to go by.

eternal difference? Truth For The World needs your help.

What does one have to do in order to be forgiven of his sins? He must
1.Hear the Gospel of Christ;
2.Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God;
3.Repent of all his past sins;
4.Confess that Christ is God"s Son;
5.Be baptized for the remission of sins.

When he does this, he is added by the Lord to His church (Acts 2:41, 47). He is born again (John 3:3-5; 2 Corinthians 5:17). He is in Christ where all spiritual blessings are to be found. (Ephesians 1:3; Galatians 3:26-27). In short, he is a Christian (Acts 11:26; 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16).

*******************

Christians must learn from the New Testament, the law of Christ for all people today, how God wants to be worshipped today. The acts of worship required by God are plainly set forth in the New Testament.

The Lord"s Supper

The Lord"s supper or communion (1 Corinthians 10:16) consists of two things: (1) unleavened bread (without yeast) and (2) the fruit of the vine (grape juice). The purpose of the Lord"s Supper is to bring to our remembrance the sacrifice of the body and blood of Jesus on the cross for our sins (Matthew 26:26-29). We must be very careful when we partake of the communion that we discern the blood and body of Jesus so that we partake in a worthy manner (1 Corinthians 11:23-30). Christians are to eat the the Lord"s Supper every first day of every week (Acts 20:7).

Prayer

Prayers offered to God are to be a part of our public worship as well as our private daily devotions. There are many examples and precepts concerning prayer in the New Testament (1 Timothy 2:1-2, 8; Philippians 4:6, etc.). In our prayers to God we give thanks and praise His name. In our prayers we can pray for our needs and for the needs of others. Jesus gave us a "model" prayer in Matthew 6:5-15. He did not intend for us simply to repeat this prayer by rote, but gave it as an example by which we could pattern our own prayers. Jesus Christ is our mediator and high priest. Therefore, our prayers must be addressed to God in the name of Jesus (John 16:23; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 John 2:1-2).

Preaching and Teaching God"s Word

God has commanded us to teach His Word (Matthew 28:19-20). Both saved and sinners need to be taught. Therefore, a lesson from the Bible is one of the acts of worship in which Christians are to engage (Acts 2:42). We must learn God"s Word so that we can grow stronger in Christ, teach others, and overcome false teachings (1 Peter 2:1-2; 2 Timothy 2:2; 4:1-5). This is a very important part of our worship and must never be overlooked.

Giving

of our means is a part of our worship to God. This is the way Christ"s church gets the necessary funds to do its work. God has given us the perfect plan for giving ""(1 Corinthians 16:2). We are told who is to give, "Let each one of you." We are told when we are to give, "On the first day of the week." We are also told how much to give, "As He may prosper." We show our love for God when we give cheerfully and willingly to Him (2 Corinthians 9:7).

Singing

Christians are commanded to praise God in song (Colossians 3:16). The kind of music God commanded for His church is vocal music only, that is, singing. There is no command or example anywhere in the New Testament for the use of mechanical instrumental music in Christian worship. To add instruments of music to our singing is a sin for it is adding to what God has told us that He wants. No man has the right to do this (Revelation 22:18-19; 2 John 9-11). We are to make "melody in our hearts" (Ephesians 5:19), the instruments made by God, not instruments made by man! what pleases God!

True Christians want to worship God. In fact, it is impossible for a true Christian not to worship God. When we understand God"s greatness, His glory, majesty, wisdom, and strength, and reflect upon His infinite mercy in giving His only begotten Son to save us from our sins, our hearts will overflow. We will want to "offer up a sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of lips which make confession to his name" (Hebrews 13:15).

Hebrews 10:25King James Version (KJV)

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

1 Timothy Chapter 3

1 This [is] a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

8 Likewise [must] the deacons [be] grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being [found] blameless.

11 Even so [must their] wives [be] grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

That would be the Catholic bible unless you have some history of another religion compiling the great book of rubbish known as the bible.

Calm down player. Your horns are starting to show, and it's not a good look. All religions essentially say the same things. They can't all be wrong.

Ahahaha. No, they don't all say the same things - and therein lies the problem. Every single one is different - so on what basis is yours the one out of thousands or millions that is right?

Why can't they all be right? The only thing you'll get wrong, for this moment, is trying to assume what is my belief. Because even I don't know just exactly what it is, that I already know. Amnesia. It's a bitch. Literally. Figuratively to some, to know thy self is fluffy philisophical bs being sold in a yoga studio. Okay. I'll go there. Nothing exercises the perverted gymnastics in my mind better than looking through the window to watch the limbered ladies go full lotus in pants that look almost painted on. That's sexy. Stalker. Nope. I'll catch that show on YouTube. Date them for a minute is almost 60 seconds too long, when you got a wild imagination like me that finds everyone way boring, if you don't know what I know. I know. Why am I still talking. What was the question(?) Religion. To define, you confine, that belief then becomes less. Emerson. Those were his words. Smart guy.

That's what you think, because they're all wrong according to the New Testament pattern of how one is to be saved, and how one must worship, but, don't take my word for it, read the New Testament for yourself, and see if I'm right, which I know that I am.

I still think they all say the same thing, using different words for sure. It's all about getting to the finish line while taking different paths, that all go the same way.

For me there never was one. I'm already there. Maybe not. Maybe there's another level to go. Who knows(?) Not me. I still have questions, even in the one place where I have all the answers. I'm still thinking there might be a curtain to pull back and unveil what's beyond the confines to the colors of my cube. Don't ask if you honestly do not want to know, because I'm not sure exactly where your heads at. You're a Trinitarian, and that's a good beginning. But can you tell me what are your colors? Mine are green and yellow, with purple and red speckles between. No doubt. Gum balls. I once reached into a gumball machine that had all the colors of the rainbow, and pulling two out blindly, two times, each time the same. One green, and one yellow. My buddy goes next, the same, pulling one out twice, and he draws purple. What are the odds of that. Amazing.

You're right about they may say it, but I can assure you without a doubt that the church of Christ is the only church that goes according to the example left by the Apostles, which was what Jesus left for them.

Show me just one church in this entire world that goes exactly like the first century Christians, which is the only pattern in the New Testament. The New Testament has one way, and only one way that a person can be saved, and Christ only built one church, meaning one church that goes according to his example. Matthew 16:18King James Version (KJV)

18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

In regards to Peter being the Rock that happens to be false, as Jesus is the Rock, Peter's confession on who Jesus was is what the Rock stands for, having faith in Jesus, who is the cornerstone, the rock, which Peter said when Jesus asked him who does Peter think Jesus was , and he answered, Matthew 16:16-17King James Version (KJV)

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. Peter knew because of his genuine unyielding "faith", that's what we all have to have today to be saved.

So if one believes, meaning to have faith, that Jesus is the Son of God, and confess unto men and then baptized, you will be saved, and added to the church of Christ, Acts 2:38-47, Mark 16:16.

There is no other way to be saved other than to be added to the church Christ built through immersion, it's that simple. Remember this, in Noah's day only 8 souls were saved out of the entire population of the world.

Now I admit that's not exactly as it will be this time, but as the bible says, Matthew 7:14, King James Bible
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

When one begins to study and decides that what the bible is saying, and places his complete faith in the word of God, then one will see that it s actually true, and the truth shall set you free from your past sinful life.

Then immediately after confessing that Jesus is the Son of God, you then are baptized to wash away your sins, and when you come up out of the watery grave, which represents the death, burial and resurrection, you'll then become a new creature, a Christian, a newborn babe in Christ , ready to grow and mature in the word of God. John 8:32, King James Bible
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Isn't this why the Puritans came to America? They didn't even celebrate Christmas, as I recall. There's no Christmas in the Bible. So they outlawed Christmas, which sounds like the plot to about ten million Christmas movies, but actually happened in real life.

I'm assuming the fellow who outlawed it looked like Burgermeister Meisterburger from Santa Claus is Comin' To Town. "THERE SHALL BE NO MORE TOYMAKERS TO THE KING!"

Finally some guy who actually found joy to be pleasant came along and un-banned Christmas. That is, I'm assuming he found joy to be pleasant. Maybe he was just tired of the paperwork involved in arresting carolers.

There's no such thing as a Catholic bible. The only thing the Catholics contributed to was the compiling of the 66 books in an order that God intended them to be, as the Catholics contributed nothing more than that. You should try the New King James Version, it's great for people just starting out, not implying that you are, just saying it's the best for people who have trouble understanding the scriptures, that's all.
So what are the Catholics? Apostates perhaps?

You know full well that that's what they are. Just take a look at all the recent hoopla over that old hag over in India. She was basically nothing but a money-generating machine for the Catholic Church (who, I might add, provided pretty pathetic medical care despite the millions of dollars) who is now rewarded by the Catholic Church as a "saint". Now in her sainthood, you can be 100% that the Catholic Church will be in the merchandising business. I'd call that pretty apostate.
