Getting started

God is not the author of confusion as I see in 1 Cor. 14:26-40 and he doesn't want his people confused but he wants us to operate in order and harmony.
By reading 1 Cor. 1:10,
"I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak he same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."

But Christians are not operating that way. Why???
We'll start off with one reason then we will discuss more as we continue on in this study.

The Bible says, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)

Are Christians really studying the word of truth or taking another man's word for what it says?
If you are not studying for yourself then you are on dangerous ground.
You can get certain truths just by reading the word but you can get so much more truth as you study. You are accountable for your own life. Check these verses out.

Matthew 23:13
"13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in."

Mark 4:19
"19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful."

Luke 11:52
"52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered."

I would hope that we can agree on this one thing. If we have the wrong Jesus Christ then he cannot save us. So we must see who the word of God, the scriptures tell us that he is. Is he some created being of God's or is he eternal?

The Mormons have a Jesus Christ, he is the brother of Lucifer. The Roman Catholics have a Jesus Christ, he is the wafer at their Eucharist. The Jehovah's Witnesses have a Jesus Christ, he was Michael the archangel recreated after a divine order. Many religions have a Jesus Christ but he MUST be the biblical one who saves sinners.
