THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: 1Corinthians 14:37 “If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord.” “If anyone thinks” means that one can delude himself. He can believe he is something that he is not. Here he believes he is a prophet (mouthpiece of God) or spiritual. How many times have we heard someone say that a certain person is ” so spiritual?” Appearances, also then, can be deceiving. The main point here is that one who does not recognize that Paul is giving the commandments of God is not a prophet or spiritual. So, without discerning the truth of Paul’s writings, we cannot be spiritual. When we do what we want to do in contrast to what Paul reveals we should do, we cannot be seen as spiritual. This thought pertains to all other writers of scripture and to our worship and service to God. If we are worshipping or serving God in a way that has not been revealed to us, we cannot be said to be spiritual. In other words, we are wrong. Thinking about these things should give us some pause.
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
