THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: As Christians, we must understand the concept of authority. Why? Because God’s word tells us clearly that we can act outside of His will. 2 John 9 reads, “Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God.” The idea is that one can run ahead and, thus, not be acting within the doctrine. Revelation gives a clear warning in 22:18-19, “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Now some believe that John is merely talking about what he has written in the book of Revelation, but the principle stands. We do not have the right, or authority, to act in a way that goes beyond what God has written. And the consequences are severe.
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long email@example.com
