A MAN ON A WELL KNOWN CHURCH’S TV STATION WAS SAYING, “Come home.” My thought was, “come home to what.” This church has had, in recent years, terrible issues with morals among its clergy. Surely, he wasn’t talking about coming home to that, was he?
It’s true, there has been a lot of confusion, and argument through the centuries since Christ founded His Church, about where the allegiance of one saved by grace through faith belongs. To make a long story short, it belongs to the Sovereign God, and not on men who have decided, with the approval of Satan to usurp God’s authority. It belongs to God’s Holy Word, the Bible, and not to a system of superstitions and traditions.
Therefore, the only viable answer to the question of where we should go to be “home,” is: To God, by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as He is revealed in the Bible. Jesus says to us all in Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest unto your souls, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Don’t be duped, dear friends, by those who claim to stand in Jesus’ place. Read Isaiah 42:8, He gives His glory to no one else, nor His praise to graven images.
With love, from a sinner saved by grace,
