Let’s do a little BIBLE MATH to learn about Christ’s One True Christian Church!
Grab a Bible (if you have one; if not, then don’t worry, the verses will be in the video), get a piece of paper, and find yourself a writing utensil, because we will be showing our work!
The passages from today’s episode are:
I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice.
So there will be one flock, one shepherd.
“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one…
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth…
“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
1 Peter 1:1-2:
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
1 Peter 3:8:
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
2 Peter 1:1-2:
Simeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours…
2 Peter 2:1-3:
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.
And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed.
And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
To the churches of Galatia:
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one…
If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
IMPORTANT: When reading the Bible, ALWAYS read the full passages, or possibly even the chapter or book(s), in order to fully understand the context of the passage.
