GREETINGS and WELCOME. THANK YOU for visiting our website.
1/19 – CHECK OUT THE NEW AUDIO LESSONS POSTED ON THE RESOURCES PAGE!
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Many denominations seem to want to allow societal norms, and changes in those norms, to dictate their teaching. In reality, there is only one truth, John 8:32. Sure, people may argue about interpretation, but in many cases, the issue is not interpretation but pleasing the most people. This thinking is tied to trying to attract as many people into the building as possible. There is nothing wrong with wanting people; however, what must be remembered is that all those people who come in are sinners in need of salvation, Romans 3:23. So in coming in, those people must repent of their sins and obey the gospel in order to become in fellowship with God. People cannot be invited in with only a “God loves you as you are” attitude. God does love them, but He will not overlook their sin. They must be taught the gospel and encouraged to repent. We cannot allow sin to be accepted because society determines it, and that is often what is happening in denominations today when they seek simply numbers. Peace with God does not come by looking the other way in terms of a person’s sin.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
