.. who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.(1Cor.4:17)

Paul taught the very same doctrine at every congregation of the Lords people.

Why isn't the very same doctrine being taught in each and every church across the land today?

Answer - people adding and subtracting from the word of God.-----> Creed-books

Ask your preacher to see the creed-book of the denominational church you attend.

It just may enlighten you to many things which you would not have known without reading the creed-book.

Many do not realize there denomination has a creed-book.

I have spoke to people who attended the Baptist church and they told me they did not use anything except the Bible. So I looked up the creed-book of the Baptist church she attended and showed it to her, she was shocked to realize they actually had a creed-book separate and apart from the Bible.(1Cor.4:6)(Deut. 4:2)(Rev. 22:18,19)

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.(Acts 17:11)

No addition to Gods word

No subtraction from Gods word.

11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; i(1Peter 4:11)

If a creed-book has more than what we find in the bible it has more than we need.

If a creed-book has less than what we find in the Bible it does not contain enough.

If a creed-book has exactly and only what we find in the Bible we do not need the creed book, just throw it away and use the Bible.

Do not add too or subtract from the word of God.

(Rev. 22:18,19)(1Cor.4:6)(Deut.4:2)

Do you know if the church you belong to has a creedbook?

Creedbooks do not teach the truth of God.

9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.(2Jn 9)

What is doctrine?

3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; (1Tim. 6:3)

All denominations transgress the doctrine of Christ (1Jn 3:4).

Check their creedbooks -...that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written...(1Cor.4:6)(Rev. 22:18,19)(Deut.4:2).

4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

*What is doctrine?

...wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ...(1Tim. 6:3)

3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.(1Jn 2:3-6)

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.(Jas. 2:24)

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?(Jas. 2:19)

Denominations teach a "dead" faith will save.

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone (Jas. 2:17).



What more will it take to convince you denoms teach error?

Many people who are involved in denominations are not aware they are guided also by a creed-book. Some have got upset at me for saying their denomnination had a creed-book.

No denomination would exist if there was no creed-books.

2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.(Deut.4:2)

5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.(Prov.30:5,6)

...that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written,...(1Cor.4:6)

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.(Rev. 22:18)

Why use creed-books?

To prove which denomination you belong too.

One need not have a creed-book if he wants to be a Christian only. The bible alone has all we need for spiritual guidance (2Peter 1:3).

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness (2Peter 1:3)

"The bible ALONE has all we need for spiritual guidance."

Then why do you constantly post links to websites touting your particular denomination's teachings?

The websites I direct people to has biblical articles. They teach no more and no less than the bible (1Cor.4:6)(Deut.4:2).

5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.(Prov.30:6)

Have you read the booklet or are you just jumping to a conclusion without checking it out?(Acts 17:11)(Jn 5:39)(1Jn 4:1-6).

24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.(Jn 7:24)

Please do post which part you consider to be a creed which cannot be found in the Bible.(1Thess.5:21)(Lk 17:3,4)

No it is not a creed-book.

Brother Leroy Brownlow is a faithful member of the church of Christ who has done quite abit of debating. He took his Bible notes while debating denominational people and placed them in a book.

Allow me to say this, if you happen to find something in this booklet of Leroy Brownlows which cannot be found in the NT and you point it out to me, you are my best friend (Gal. 4:16).

There is no reason to get upset at the mailman for delivering the mail. The thing to do is check it out, see if it's of faith or not, if it's not of faith we must drop it and return to the faith (Rom. 10:17).

...for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.(Rom 14:23).

Maybe you need to start by giving your opinion of the passage.

Opinions fill the creed-books of men today.

If you want the word of God on spiritual matters just open the bible and read (Eph. 3:3,4)(Rom. 10:17)(1Peter4:11).

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.(Eph. 5:17).

I agree. But looking at your previous post it appears you have a different interpretation. What do you think it says? You tell me, then I shall say whether I am in agreement or not.

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.(Rom. 10:17)

(Rom. 14:23)...for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

So then do I take this to mean that you believe that something not mentioned in the Bible is not of faith, and therefore it is sin?
