Lesson 7 - What about Salvation

Destruction comes to those who lack...

Destruction comes to those who lack Bible knowledge, Hosea 4:6. Did you know that we are disapproved in GOD's sight if we do not study (diligent, intent searching and reading) HIS word, 2 Timothy 2:15. Love includes allowing others to make their own decisions. GOD allows us to decide if we will be lazy and not study HIS divine message, which positions us to remain in ignorance of HIS Holy Will. GOD also allows us to decide to obey HIM and be Bible students, where we learn how to please HIM and be HIS children, where we also learn how to be Holy and Righteous and Saved from our sins. Whats your decision?

Well, this is the last lesson, my hope and prayer is that it has been studied in light of, 'what does The Bible say'. If i can be of any assistance please let me know, csakin67@gmail.com

Main points from lesson 6
-JESUS promised to build HIS Church in the life time of those standing in HIS presence. 
-GOD always keeps HIS promises.
-The Church had its beginning (was built) in Acts 2, on the day of Pentecost, in the first century.
-The Church is the people.
-JESUS promised to build one Church.
-Denominationalism is confusing because all the beliefs are different and cannot be found in The Bible.
-To be the Church (which is the people), today, we must go back to the New Testament and do what they did, and we will simply be New Testament Christians, not denomination X, Y, or Z.
-New Testament Worship includes (for each first day of the week):
-Singing (Ephesians 5:19) no authority for instruments
-The LORD's Supper (1 Corinthians 11:20-26, 1 Corinthians 
10:16,17; Acts 20:7)
-Praying (1 Timothy 2:1,2,8)
-Preaching (Acts 20:7)
-Giving (1 Corinthians 16:1,2)
-The New Testament Church had special servants:
Elders - Maked sure only Bible is taught among The Church, accurately and in its purity.
Deacons - Work to serve in needs; feeding the hungry, caring for widows, etc.
