The church of Christ was always in the mind of God (Isa.2:1-5)(Joel 2:28)(Dan.2:44)(Eph.1:9-11 ; 3:9-11).

In (Luke 24:49)& (Acts 1:5,8) The apostles were told they would receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit (power). This happened in (Acts 2:1-4). The church (kingdom) of our Lord had its beginning in (Acts 2)- in 33AD.

The prophecies up until this time had always spoke of the church (kingdom) in future tense. From (Acts 2) on the word of God speaks of the church (kingdom) in present tense (Acts 2:47).

Most churches were made by man and began from the 1500s on. That means each of those man-made churches would not fit in the prophecies above.

This is so very important.I am truly concerned about your soul.

Consider the following:

1.When did the church (denomination) you attend have its beginning?

2. Who actually built the church (denomination) you attend?

3.Where did the church (denomination) you attend have its beginning?

If you cannot answer the questions above and have those answers harmonize with the prophecy scriptures,what does that say about the church you attend?


The church of our Lord began on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2)(Dan.2:44)(Isa,2:1-5)- approx.- 33-AD.

The church of our Lord was built by Jesus Christ(Mt.16:18,19)(Acts 20:28)(Rom.16:16).

The church of our Lord began in Jerusalem (Isa 2:3)(Zech.13:1,2).

Heath,

Your "church" started with Constantine, everything you do comes straight from the Roman Catholic Church and that's who rules you whether you know it or not....Do you celebrate Christ-Mas?
----------The December celebration that Constantine dubbed as "Christ" birthday is really the winter soltice celebration of Saturnella. A drunken pagan festival that lasted approx 2 weeks, the celebration of the Sun and the days becoming longer, after all, the Pagans were into Sun worship.
----------

All bible scholars know that Christ wsa born in the fall (actually during the Feast of Tabernacles) during the sign of the Virgin (Genesis 1:14).
----------
Christ-mas is celebrated by unbelievers and all nations, it crosses every barrier. Yahweh did not make mention of celebrating his Son's birth, in the bible there are only two mentions of birthdays being celebrated and they are both by the heathern pagans!
----------
Yahshua (Jesus) told us to remember the "Passover" which the "church" refers to as Easter and that's a whole other story: Ever wonder what Eggs and Bunnies have to do with Your Messiah?? Easter (Eastore) is the Goddess of Fertility!!! Another Roman Pagan practice.
----------
Passover, when Yahshua (Jesus) was crucified is always on Abib (Nisan) 14th, according to Yahweh (God). This year those two dates Easter and Passover fell about a month apart.
----------
Yahweh appointed 3 times a year a year for man to meet with Him:
----------
Passover/Unleavened Bread (When Yahshua was crucified, Feast of Weeks (know by the church as Pentecost) and Tabernacles, this is when Yahshua/Jesus was born.

----------
Jeremiah 10

10:1 HEAR the word which the LORD speaks to you, O house of Israel.
----------
Jer 10:2 Thus says the LORD:
----------
"Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.
----------
Jer 10:3 For the customs of the peoples are futile; For one cuts a tree from the forest,
The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.
----------
Jer 10:4 They decorate it with silver and gold;
They fasten it with nails and hammers
So that it will not topple.

The information you have posted "THE WAY" is not correct. According to (Isa.2:3)(Zech.13:1,2)(Joel 2:28)(Luke 24:49)(Acts 1:5,8)(Acts 2:1-4)(Acts 2:36-47) the church of Christ had its beginning -

1. In Jerusalem
2. On the day of Pentecost
3. In about 33 AD.
4. We get our commands from Christ. He built the church.(Mt.16:18.19)(Acts 20:28).

If what I just read is correct,Constantine was not even born till around (272 AD.).

The church of Christ had already be established and it commands from Christ had already been set in stone by the end of the first century. Note -(2Peter 1:3)

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness,...(2Peter 1:3)

ALL THOSE THINGS which are spoken of in the above verse were delivered ONCE and for all (Jude 3)(John 14:26 ; 16:13).

All the information was delivered once and we need not be waiting for more information to come at a later date.

Constantine could not add anything to the word of God with the Lord's permission. So any addition or subtraction from anyone is condemned (Deut.4:2)(1Cor.4:6)(Rev.22:18 ,19).

And I have no church,it is the Lords (Acts 20:28)(Mt.16:18,19). The church of Christ (Rom.16:16)

Thanks for posting

I am not Heath. And I do not celebrate Christmas It is very clear to me that you do not know much about the church of Christ.

What is it that you think we (coC) got from the Catholic Church?

The church of Christ partakes of the Lord's supper each first day of the week (Acts 20:7)(1Cor.11:26). We are to do it OFTEN. If we only take the word of God it would teach us to partake of the Lord's Supper upon each first day of the week.

Do you think people today are governed by the O.T.Law? It was only given to the Jews (Ex.34:27,28).

There is a TV program in the DFW area called

"The Truth In Love"

They are presently discussing how to prove there is a God using the bible. I am in awe of the things the bible predicted many years before man could prove such things were true.

The Truth In Love TV program can be seen on channel 52 if you have an antenna in the Dallas Fort Worth area. This program comes on each Sunday at 7:30am.

You can also go to The Truth In Love website. They will send you CDs or tapes of the program free of charge.

17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.(John 17:17).

22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:(1Peter 1:22)

14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel,...(2Thess.2:14)

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.(Rom.1:16)

...salvation which is in Christ Jesus...(2Tim.2:10)

27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.(Gal.3:27)

Many people involved in denominationalism claim the church of Christ teaches and practices baptismal regeneration. This stems from a misunderstanding of the principles the church of Christ truly teaches.

Here is a lesson on baptismal regeneration.

Many people start telling the story about the Philippian Jailer (Acts 16:31) but stop short of the end of the event. I was searching for a lesson which dealt with this situation and found two good lessons.

One thing for sure, the coc love to quote and cut and paste from other MEN"S articles. They love debating their views vs. others. It seems more purpose would be served if they were off the computer and out serving mankind in hospitals, nursing home, visiting shut-ins. There is one preacher in Royse City (coc) who spends about 10 hours each day on the computer bashing other denominations. That is not the way to bring anyone to Christ.

In (Acts 17:22,23) The apostle Paul stood in the midst of a group of people who really thought they were religiously minded. He wanted to introduce them to the God whom they had been ignorantly worshipping.

They did not know the true God nor did they know how to worship Him correctly. Paul was not afraid to tell them the truth. We need people today with such courage to stand and speak truth to the people. Where are these men?

Gussie,would you say that Paul was wrong in explaining that the idols in Athens were nothing more than gold, silver, stone, graven by art and man's device?

Was Paul bashing their religious ways or was Paul leading them to Christ?

Those who are being told they are involved in religious error will be upset. The true test is how they react to that truth (Luke 8:15).

It is NOT right the way the Royse City guy approaches the situation. You are much more tactful and respectful of people.
