“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me” (John 14:6).
We all fall short of the glory of God – “all we like sheep have gone astray”. Just like there are no perfect humans, there are no 100 percent churches that have the monopoly on the mind of Christ and have it ALL together. Indeed, all who look for perfect churches or denominations with perfect doctrines, can and often do become perfectly disappointed and walk away from Christ and Christianity altogether.
Mistakenly denominations exchange Christ as the Head of the Church and the Head of the Body of Christ, with Christ plus this doctrine, Christ plus the way we do things, Christ plus any number of essential conditions for salvation. In other words, these churches believe that to them and them alone, Christ gave the keys of heaven.
This simply isn’t the Gospel. Christ invites us to relate to Him as the Head of the Church and to hinge our eternity on no other creed than 100% of grace through faith in Jesus. What a sigh of relief! It’s when we look for a perfect Saviour that we find Jesus Christ. All those who base their faith and salvation on this rock and this cornerstone, become part of the body of Christ or His Church – the one where gratitude replaces that better than thou attitude.
Seek Jesus and know that you are one part of the Church of God and only one part of the unifying body of Christ.
