A Crucial Bible Study
Today, it seems more and more like different religions are standing on two hills. As we continue our search through Bible study topics, we delve into something that could lure both types of people into a trap.
There are those who are anti-name a group, we have radicals murdering innocent people.
And on the other hand, we have groups of people who want to unify, come together, and worship as one.
While the first group certainly has it wrong, the second group is a much more sinister deception. Not always, but let’s take a closer look.
Why Would it Be So Bad?
God wants all of us to come together under His banner. That much is true. He’d love everyone to come together with Him.
It sounds great, doesn’t it?
All Christians uniting under one banner, forgetting our petty differences, letting go of our denominational contradictions, and creating one happy church seems like a wonderful thing.
It could be. If everyone was united in truth.
The problem is, that unification wouldn’t be coming together in pure truth. They would be coming together under something sinister, something that would take away the core of their beliefs and would trample on all the groundwork Martin Luther’s theses laid.
A Sinister Compromise
When many groups come together under one banner, even when they’re doing it in the name of the Bible, things begin to happen, wheels turn, and things start moving that cannot be stopped.
With so many churches represented all over the globe, were they to come together, how many of their core beliefs would they use in the name of unification?
See, on the surface, it seems like a good idea, but this kind of compromise is one of the most fiendish, clever tricks the devil has come up with.
It makes everything seem right and good. When in the end it’s actually stripping away the things that give a church and its people identity.
For better or worse, when you lose something you believe in and accept it as okay, then you have lost a sense of yourself, your beliefs, and your faith.
We must be diligent in watching out for such deceptions.
Continue to study all the topics the Bible lays out so that you will not fall prey to a sinister compromise like this one.
