(Galatians 1:8) But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!
(John 8:32) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
HOW CAN THE CHURCH BE CONSIDERED PURE?
QUESTION: I have been following where you are saying that the “Church” is the “bride” of Yeshua. But isn’t the church supposed to be pure, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish as Ephes, 5:25-27 says?
In my experience the Church is anything but pure, and many don’t even seem to care. Are we not supposed to be working on ourselves?
I am in a Messianic bible study where they teach us that the Lord could not bring a Church like this to himself. What do you think?
ANSWER: If you read Ephesians 5:25-27 carefully, you’ll see that Jesus gave His life to make the Church holy. It’s something He did, not something we do. If you are in Christ you already are a new creation. As far as God is concerned the old you has gone and the new you has come (2 Cor. 5:17). At the cross Jesus took upon Himself all your sins and in return gave you all of His righteousness (2 Cor. 5:21). Therefore all the sins of your life are forgiven (Colossians 2:13-14).
Many Messianic believers confuse the old and new covenants. In the old covenant people had to work to achieve and maintain their righteousness. In the new covenant righteousness is imputed to us by faith (Romans 3:21-22). The Church was made free of stain, wrinkle or any other blemish at the cross. Not because of what we do, but because of our faith in what the Lord did.
Teaching us to live holy lives is commendable, but making our inclusion in the rapture dependent upon meeting an impossible standard is inconsistent with New Covenant theology. For by His one sacrifice the Lord has made us perfect forever. (Hebr. 10:12-14) Don’t get me wrong, I’m not condoning sin. But over and over again, the New Testament tells us our salvation is not about how we behave, it’s about what we believe (John 3:16, John 6:28-29, Romans 10:9, Titus 3:4-7).
QUESTION: I have a question about salvation that is basically about motives and where we place God.
Should a person question their salvation if they do indeed love God, but a lot of the time love other things or people above Him?
And what about when people first get converted, but their joy and delight are more in the benefit of being saved, than in God’s character in saving them. Because these motives are present, should a person question their salvation?
ANSWER: In regard to sometimes loving something or someone more than God, in Romans 7:15-20 Paul said that he was unable to behave like he really wanted to because of the sin that still lived within him (that’s true of all of us). It seemed to him like the harder he tried to do what he wanted the more often he failed.
And in Galatians 5:17 he said the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. That’s why we can only be saved by the Grace of God.
Being human beings with a sin nature we are all guilty of having our focus drawn away from God from time to time. Confession brings forgiveness, and the Holy Spirit will get us back on track.
However, if you ever start worshipping or praying to someone or something else, or crediting him/her/it for your blessings, then you’ve crossed the line and have turned this other thing into your god. That means you were never saved in the first place.
As for the joy of new converts coming more from the benefits of being saved than the character of God, I suspect that’s true in most cases. Most of us were unhappy with the way our life was going and were looking for a way to make it better when we met the Lord. We didn’t learn much about His character until well after we were saved.
By the way, I assume this is not a hypothetical case and you’re asking for yourself. I would say the fact you have questions about it is a good indication that you’re saved.
