    Which Church is he talking about?

    GOD IS STILL IN CONTROLL IN ALL OUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE SHALT DIRECT OUR PATH WE CAN'T SERVE TWO GOD'S REPENT AND BELIEVE GOD AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR GOD HAS THE PLAN FOR OUR LIFE
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The Place of Christ is underlined thus: “when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places. Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church.”
  • A disciple
    Frank; We are in a time of increasing darkness and trouble, because so many that have heard and known the word of God have despised and rejected it; and love instead their cares and pleasures in this life, than to be of the truth. This is the narrow way that Jesus spoke of, and the very reason most choose to stay on the broad way because they are ashamed or afraid or simply love their sins more.
  • Steve morrow
    1 CORINTHIANS 10:4 AND DID ALL DRINK THE SAME SPIRITUAL DRINK FOR THEY DRANK OF THAT SPIRITUAL ROCK THAT FOLLOWED THEM AND THAT --- ROCK WAS CHRIST --- 10:9 --- NEITHER LET US TEMPT CHRIST AS SOME OF THEM ALSO TEMPTED AND WERE DESTROYED OF SERPENTS --- 1 TIMOTHY 2:5 FOR THERE IS ONE GOD AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN --- THE MAN JESUS CHRIST ---
  • Cephas
    He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
