Well said, FB . . . except it is not Christianity . . . it is Bibleanity or Churchianity.

To follow Jesus, we must know the path he took.

Jesus didn't condemn the Bible or Church but he did condemn false religion.

He had no NT "Bible" . . . the church was simply His followers . . . and the false religions are what He warned about in the "latter days" . . . which from His point in time would definitely include our entire history of Churchianity and the false teachings they incorporate!

Jesus preached everywhere, in the cities, the countryside, villages, market places, homes, synagogues, temples, anywhere he found people. Jesus was killed by people with false religion. And yes, there are many false religions today.

Default A Way With Rules 2 Get Atonement You Mean

If the bible all atonement and no rules then why obey Matthew 3:2 today ?

Why be a Christian if you can do whatever you want and go to heaven too?

If hell simply doubting grace to make it then why is Romans 6:1 in the bible ?

If all the bible not for us then why carry one around all the time ?

If all the bible not for us then why not tear out the pages we desire to ?

If wisdom partially for us why carry around a bible ?

If we got it all together with grace only why go to bible class weekly ?

If grace do everything why pray on our knees all the time ?

If faith do everything why tithe and fast and go unto perfection like Paul ?

If man behind part of the bible only then we saying man got to help God
out with teaching salvation ?

If man got to help God out with part of the bible then we saying man just as smart as God or smarter ?

If all the bible can't be defended by God then we saying God don't know
what he doing----2 Timothy 3:16 ?

If we saying the bible a little questionable in creditability then we saying
the wisdom of God is today---1 Cor. 1:25 ?

If God allowed Eve to think she know what she doing eating a fruit and then he know what he doing allowing man to alter the bible in grammar and meaning----Romans 3:1-4 ?

Alterations never make creditablity of God in the book be defeated at
all today----1 Cor. 1:25 ?

Alterations can never make truth be a man made lie in the book anywhere or Romans 3:1-4 ?

The Holy Spirit spot out alterations in the book anywhere---Rev. 22:18-19 ? Sure it does !!!

Only a child of God will spot it ? Yet bet !!! 2 Cor. 4:3.

No child of God can be suckered by any counterfeit information ? You bet again !!! Romans 3:1-4 and John 10.

"At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me." (Matthew 18)



Take gentle care.

Perfectionist in Christ never claim to be perfect just claim to strive for perfection in him with the book anywhere.......

.......More to Christianity and preaching without preaching 1 Timothy 2:9-14.

Amen, June!

Jesus, however, said, "Let the little children come to me, and stop keeping them away, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to people like these." Matthew 19:14
