WARNING! This post contains TRUTH, though spoken in LOVE, which "may" if not accepted, cause severe anger, physical reactions of high blood pressure, upset stomach and head ache. If you experience any of these physical reactions, consult and obey the New Testament passages noted until the symptoms pass. DO NOT consult any denominational doctrines of men, creeds, dogmas, traditions or public opinion as your symptoms will only increase in number and severity.
In Matthew 16.18 Jesus promised to build His church. Singular. Not plural, singular. There were not and are not multiple churches. There is only one gospel, all others are accursed according to Paul in Galatians 1.6fl. “IF” there are multiple churches, multiple gospels and multiple ways for salvation, the reason and purpose for the church of Christ vanishes. “IF” we are just “one among many,” all is lost as a reason to exist.
The singular gospel of salvation cannot be denied though it very often is rejected along with the proclaimers of that gospel. The opponents of this singular name, this singular gospel, this singular salvation want this gospel to spread no further and be spoken and taught no more. Whether or not this singular gospel is to be spread, be spoken about or taught is for others to judge but we must continue to preach, proclaim and teach this narrow and exclusive gospel message of Jesus Christ!
