    To anyone that has stated there is no perfect church " body in Christ Jesus " , Please review the following. It clearly describes thee attribute of those that are His people.


    Revelation 3

    Message to the Church in Philadelphia


    7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

    8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

    9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

    11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

    Very good reminder...

    1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

    &

    Psalm 37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

    The carnal mind hates truth & judgement, and leans unto its own understanding. The mind of the spirit, loves truth and being decreased in the carnal, is to be increased in Christ.

At least the people in the churches know that they need you and are reading their bibles and such." His reply (paraphrased) "The people in the churches KNOW that they need to seek ME, but they stopped when they found RELIGION"
    This is very well stated, reminds me of John the Baptist how ALL of Israel came to hear him preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. and of Him who was to come and baptise them with the Holy Ghost & Fire.

    Interesting thought to note , John the Baptist never enter a synagogue of the Jews if my memory is correct.

    Just like a teenager to get in over their head by opening their mouth, thinking they know everything. I remember being 16 and thinking I knew it all, I also remember being a believer for about 3 years thinking I knew everything then about 2 years later I was reading a book and realized I knew nothing.
    John 6:63, 65 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life....65 And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.”

    I Corinthians 4:7 "For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?"

    Born in the Spirit & word, granted by the Father. EE-TEOW

    Your parents must have introduced you to the KJV. Most of the youth today start with the NIV. Once you begin to understand the imagery in the KJV, there's nothing more beautiful.
    Every denomination and church these days has their statement of faith on the internet. I'd start there. It's harder to find a pastor, priest or minister that can answer all the needs of each individual. These days, their time is consumed more and more by the emotional carnage of people trying to negotiate their way through a life filled with anger, betrayal, and disappointment.
    But, if what you're seeking after is a greater truth, it's harder to find a source. This cite has many knowledgeable people. It has a lot of passionate people too, but you probably noticed that. The desire for a greater truth, though, is a journey that you must pursue on your own. Bible studies within the churches are typically social clubs that never get beyond the milk stage (Heb.5:12-14). If you want the strong meat, you must run the race (1 Cor. 9:24) to receive the prize. I hope you get the anointing. That's the only way to get there. You can have degrees, doctorates, etc., etc., etc. But when only man teaches you, that's pretty much all you've got.
    At just 16, you're wondering if heaven is enough. Good for you! Most of us never ask the question, "What more is there?" I wish you well and hope you give your need for more everything you've got and don't let the world cause you to stumble (James 1:6-8).
    You want the third heaven (2 Cor. 12:2-4). Me too! But if I'm lucky enough to get to the first, I'll probably only get a glance at the door to the second. I'll pray for you, Masonian. Good Luck and never give up (Is. 34:16). And please don't be discouraged by all the noise.
    (Can you imagine just being able to take the lowest seat in the third heaven? Just to be a fly on the wall - so to speak. If you get there, I want to be on your "twitter" page.) Blessings!

Naturally I'd like to comment on every response to evoke more thought! I am 16 and very well-read. If/when quoting or citing scriptures please use the KJV (1611) version of the bible to keep everything mainstream and no mix up's in translations when I respond God Bless
    I'm not worried about if my denomination is right, just concerned if they are wrong. I don't pay attention to denominations. All that matters is if your're IN Christ.
    2 Timothy 2:7 Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.

    End Times According to the Bible

    "
    In bestowing grace, God never rescinds His claims upon us, but rather enables us to meet them. Was the prodigal son, after his penitential return and forgiveness, less obliged to conform to the laws of his Father’s house than before he left it? No indeed, but more so." A.W. Pink

    I think, therefore I'm dangerous
