Many people call themselves Christians but they do not associate with Jesus Christ. They associate with their church. The first thing other believers ask you, is which church you belong to. If you say that you do not belong to a church, you belong to Jesus, then they think there is something wrong with you. Then they do not associate with you. They only associate with their church and members of their church.
When you ask people about their faith in Jesus, they tell you about their church. They are Calvinist, catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Evangelicals but rarely do you meet someone who is a disciple of Jesus. Others have left the church but they are Bible believers. They believe in KJV, NAS, NIV, NLT and other English translations of the Bible. Their confession of faith is a Bible Version, not Jesus Christ. If you tell a Bible believer that you follow Jesus under guidance of the Holy Spirit, they do not associate with you.
Jesus said that if we deny Him before men, He will also deny us before His Father and the holy angels. If our association and confession of faith is a church denomination or a Bible version, then we are certainly not confessing Jesus Christ. Your church denomination or Bible version of choice does not mean anything in the kingdom of God. If we do not follow, obey and confess Jesus Christ, we are certainly not His disciples and He will also deny us entry into heaven.
Do you belong to Jesus? Do you associate with Jesus? Or do you associate with a church denomination or a Bible version?
May Jesus bless you.
