I have heard people say I belong to the church of Christ , we do it that way, another say well I belong to the Baptist church come visit us because we do it this way.
1 cor:3:1-Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly--mere infants in Christ.2.I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3.You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 4.For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere human beings?
They were starting their own churches, and leaving the one that Paul had preached to them.
They had their excuses, you have your excuses. Nothing new under the sun.

I think the reason you are so persistant on the subject is because you thought you had a good grip on Gods word and I came along and questioned it. And you don't like it, because you call me arrogant, you said I think that I am so wise. The local Church blocks your spiritual connection to God. It's all by faith. That's why Paul tell the men not to cover their head because they are the image and glory of God. The local church is a covering, another spirit. Mans flesh is not the image of god, but mans spirit is.
2 Corinthians 11:4 4For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

Bahahahahahahahahaha....

Seriously, you haven't a clue about my relationship with God. You don't even ask good questions.

You preach a different gospel, and I don't put up with you "easily enough".

I'm not preaching a different gospel. The churches are preaching the right Gospel. They can only go so far. The pastors preach inspiration messages, because that's all they have. I bet sometimes there are disagreements about simple things. Their just kept as infants. These local churches are not the same spirit or they would all be exactaly the same.
eph;4:4:1-6 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all

I'm apart of the body of Christ, without the church covering. It's scary to come out of the church, because then you have depend on Jesus and him alone.
Yes, it's a bit like going on a voyage and you trust in the ship you sail in.....instead of the CAPTAIN. Reminds me of the Titanic...built by man.

Beta..BE QUIET already ...you talk but dont listen so your replies make no SENSE...weve been nicely trying to say DROP IT..this discusdion is NOT brining others on this thread CLOSER to the Lord and doesnt that just defeats our purposes as christians! Chasing ones tail is a waste of time and very unattractive !
You don't like JESUS or me asking the same question ? since it came from scripture you are in fact telling HIM to be QUIET !
You have just given the explanation why trad/nom christianity can't get it right and is so confused and divided within itself.
Point of fact is you and they can't answer HIS question and seemingly have no intention of asking 'Why not'. Please think again !!!

Sure you would like to continue your own way but if GOD did not intervene ALL would be lost. Trad christians have failed to bring people to the REAL CHRIST who CAN SAVE ! He WARNED us of false christs who would DECEIVE MANY to lead down the road of destruction Mat 24; Mat 7v21-23.
To be converted requires 'radical change ! Don't tell the Lord to 'be Quiet - He is your Savior !

here is a question for you- since Sabbath ended at sundown on sat., and the women did not go to the tomb until the next morning, how do YOU know that Christ rose on the Sabbath?

What would be a disaster is , if Jesus comes back for his body and it is made up of a bunch of different doctrines( which are different spirits). The body of Christ are all of the same spirit.
spoken like a true Believer !

We're not supposed to be under any thing, but Jesus. Any other covering, blocks the Holy Spirit.
I’m sorry I can’t find that in the Bible. If you can send me the verse that points to that teaching I would love to research it. Thanks

BUT in the meantime the covenant with my church is a declaration that as believers in Christ under one roof we will go forth and work toward living out the Holy Scriptures and our duties as a Christian the best way we can. Not sure how that could block the Holy SPIRIT.

And now that I think about it. This was my first time ever joining a church although I’ve attended different ones all my life. It wasn’t til this church I felt that I was getting bible and not opinion and my life has never been more full and I have never felt so connected to The Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

no, they did not . stop lying. believers were already meeting on the fist day of the week, the catholics just made it official.

you need to learn to accept truth. John said he was in the Sprit on the Lord's Day, he did not say Sabbath.
Most people know that the Roman Catholics made Sunday church official but I fail to see the relevance.

I’m pretty sure God doesn’t mind what day you meeting to praise and worship Him. I go to church on Sat some weeks, Thursday some weeks and Sundays others and if I’m lucky twice a week!

please allow me to explain- ms. beta. and some others think that Jesus was crucified on wed., rose on the Sabbath, and the roman catholic church created sun. worship.

if you really go deep with some of them ( I have ), they think that sun. worship is the mark of the beast.

so, I agree with you, and the others. I am just trying to counter the disimformation , which can be confusing to new or young believers.

just to be clear, I agree with your posts.

24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:
28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
