THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Isn’t it interesting how denominations and others will use any tactic to try to bring people in the doors whether it be meals or gyms or entertainment? Some say, for example, “Jesus fed people, so we should, too.” The implication is not simply that as individuals we have an obligation to feed people. We all agree on that. Their implication includes using the money collected in the contribution to feed people in order to bring them in. Clearly, this practice is not authorized in the New Testament; but further than that, it is interesting to note what Jesus says about the matter, since He is the example being put forth. In John 6, Jesus feeds the hungry multitude miraculously. All have more food than they need and extra is gathered. The multitudes follow after Jesus and, in fact, question how He arrived at the other side of the Sea of Galilee in John 6:25. Notice, however, Jesus’ reply in John 6:26, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.” These people had already witnessed miracles, but the real reason they followed Jesus was not for truth. It was for food. Jesus made the point that, after He had fed them, all they wanted was more food. The same is true today. If we bring people in with food, food is what they will want. The mission of the church is not about food; it is about spreading the gospel. Win them with the truth, and they will want more truth.
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
