Discussion for Philippians 1

  • Lu2677
    I said,"In the light of Philippians 1:27" My question was rhetorical=asked in order to make a statement rather than to get an answer. I was bringing it into the light for those here that say"believe whatever you want, as long as you are under the blood you are saved" and comments to that affect. I do know the answer, and thank you for your input.I hope others will give it serious consideration.

    Hi Lu2677; but you already know the answer to that: the Lord commands us to be of the same mind, and to all speak the same thing; on Spirit, one Lord, one Father, one faith, one baptism, etc. There as many reasons as there are divisions, but they are all disapproved by God; just as He has given us His one Word. As there's only one true way of being converted and saved; there can only be one way!
  • Bruce
    Lu: your question is just a little ambiguous? In The Body, there are multitudes of different people brought up differently. They eat different foods,dress differently. But there's Only One Body,One Savior,One Way. Different Beliefs not ok. / in the churches,are many, many multitudes. That build their belief around Their Sins. The more oks! The better they feel./ Only The Blood of The Lamb Saves.

We are his beloved children Keep reading> The Lord Jesus said he would send us his spirit to teach us

    In light of Philippians 1:27 Why do people say it is "ok" to have different beliefs, in the body of Christ?
  • Irene123
    Philip. 1:27 - Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
