“IT’S A BIRD; IT’S A PLANE; IT’S SUPERMAN!”
So the people proclaimed when they saw Superman flying through the air! They weren’t quite sure what it was that they saw. Should God’s people be as nebulous about what constitutes the “True Church,” as the people were about Superman in that work of fiction?
There are many denominations or Christian sects who claim to be the “True Church.” I’ll cut right to the chase and say that none of them that make that claim, are what they claim to be. It is “Bible Christians,” rather, who are the Body of Christ. To more adequately define this, it is those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as He is revealed in the Bible who are the “True Church.” That is what Jesus taught (John 3:16-19; John 5:24; John 6:35-37) and what the Holy Spirit taught through the Apostle Paul (Romans 10:9-13; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 1:3-7, 2:8-10; Colossians 1:1-20), and myriads of other Scriptures, all declaring the Sovereignty of Jesus Christ.
Why am I writing this? That those who have been duped by false teachers may turn to the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. There is salvation in no one or nothing else. Especially those who make erroneous claims about being the “One True Church,” that teach another way of salvation other than by “Grace through faith” in Jesus Christ as He is revealed in the Bible.
The Sovereign of the Universe declares in Isaiah 42:8, “I am the Lord: that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” Can you honestly and truly imagine that Almighty God; He who is “Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, who is, and was, and is to come, The Almighty,” has given authority to one group, or to one man who claims to be His representative? According to Holy Scripture, He cannot, will not, and has not!
If you haven’t trusted in Christ, by grace through faith, do so today! He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6).
