10 Things you should know about Christian churches

10 Things you should know about Christian churches.

Are all churches Christian churches?

So many people today make the claim that they are in christian churches.  I have not taken a poll, but I really believe if you asked 100 religious people are they in a Christian church they would say yes.

Here are 10 Things you should know about the statement Christian churches.  

What saith the scriptures? 

1. The Bible is God’s word and the authority on religious matters.  Why is this important?  It is important because the church that is in the Bible is Christ’s church.  And, just because we say a church is a Christian church doesn’t make it so.

2. And, some so called Christians churches have a creed book.  Did you know that the Bible is sufficient and it is the only standard that we need? 

2 Peter 1:3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

3. So, there are over 48,000 denominations that make up so called Christian churches.  Denomination is separating the body of Christ.  God frowns up that.  Read 1 Corinthians 1:10-13

4. Some so called christian churches have religious practices contrary to the Bible. For example calling men reverend.  Psalm 111:9 in the King James translations says Holy and is His name.  This refers to God.  Some versions say Awesome.  That’s definitely God’s title. 

All scripture is God breathed…..

 

2 Timothy 3:16

5. Did you know that some so called Christian churches teach so many different ways to be saved?  Some say except the Lord as your personal savior, or say a sinner’s prayer.   Or, you just need to believe.  The members of the church of Christ in the Bible taught what God commanded them to teach.  Go here to see what the Bible teaches..

Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free..

 

John 8:32

Is name a important? 

7. Many of the “Christian churches,” wear many different names.  Neither is there salvation in any other there is none other name given among men whereby ye must be saved..  Acts 4:12.  No salvation in man made names.

6. Many Christian churches have earthly headquarters.  The church of Christ has it’s headquarters in heaven where the head is, Jesus Christ.  Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

What does the Bible teach?

8.  Many christian churches have women pastors. 

 This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.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; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

 

If you seek to please men….

9. Have you examined what some “christian churches” teach on the subject of Hell?  Some say there is no Hell, or Jesus won’t send anybody to Hell.  Jesus taught more on eternal punishment then on Heaven.  Here are a few verses to consider, 

Mark 9:48
Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

2 Thess 1:8-9
(8) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
(9) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

2 Thess 1:8-9
(8) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
(9) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

Rev 20:15
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

10. Also, some so called Christian churches do not meet on the first day of the week for worship.  Act 20:7.  Some meet on Saturdays or other days.  Some Miss the first day of the week.  Hebrews 10:25.  We are not to forsake meeting with the saints to worship.

Hopefully, these tips have helped you. So, to sum up everything we need to have Bible authority for what we do in service to God.  Also, if you like to know more about Christ and his church, please take the free Bible survey. 

Thank you!
