Imagine Jesus Christ physically living on Earth today decides to attend church one sunday.
Jesus Christ would be presented with a myriad of different churches, all claiming to represent Him, profess His teachings, have His appointed ministers, and be His Church. Yet most of these have disagreeing doctrines
Jesus happens upon a building with a spired bell tower. He ascends a series of concrete steps and sees the structure is apparently named after one of His apostles.” He flips through the pages of a book explaining the church’s catechism, and finds that its doctrines teach there is only one church and that it has a hierarchical government.
“Well,” He thinks, “This church understands there is only one true church” ( Matt. 16:18), “and it is not divided into many groups or organizations” ( I Cor. 1:13)
He would see his statue and that of his mum-Mary.“not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” ( Ex. 20:4“not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” ( Ex. 20:4.He instantly makes a U-turn and leaves (exodus 20;4).
Next he attends christ embassey and sees the pastor with dyed hair preach that old testament is nailed to the cross by Jesus and irrelevant to salvation. Jesus remembers mtt 15; 17-18. Pastor asked members to give each other holy hug.girls wore short skirts and tight trousers
Jesus walks out
Next, He finds a church of “latter day saints.” Inside, a well-dressed young man greets Him and eagerly explains some of his church’s beliefs. He quickly lists that the church practices tithing because it is an ancient command, that baptism is by immersion, and the Holy Spirit is received by the laying on of hands. The young man also talks about how they adhere to the same organization of apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists as existed in the early Church, and that the principles and ordinances of the gospel are faith, repentance, baptism and receiving the Holy Spirit.
“I did place ministerial ranks and various offices in My church, which this organization seems to understand,” Jesus thinks. “I certainly commanded that tithes should be paid, telling people ‘this ought you to have done’ ( Matt. 23:23). And baptism is by immersion, and the Holy Spirit is received through the laying on of hands.”
The young man continues, talking about celebrating Christmas and Easter, and how wonderful those days are.
Christ concludes, “This church keeps manmade religious holidays, instead of the Holy Days outlined in the Bible.”
After traveling a few more blocks, Christ comes to an Anglican building with music blasting out from a propped open door. Peering inside, He sees a minister on a stage running around, jumping and yelling
“Hallelujah!”—“Praise God!”—“Can I get an amen?” Congregants sway back and forth, with many falling over backward, and writhing in the aisles and shaking uncontrollably. People are loudly talking about being “slain in the Spirit” and “speaking in tongues.” Yet all Jesus hears is unintelligible gibberish.
“This church is nothing but confusion,” He concludes. “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace. In My Church, all things are to be done decently and in order. But this is chaos!” (Read I Corinthians 14:33, 40.
Adjacent to it was a building legible writin MOUNTAIN OF FIRE”.
People were praying aggressively with “holy anger”. He moved closer and realised they were laying courses on their enemies. Jesus ran out of the church.
Jesus found himself in a kingdom hall. He likes their modesty,quietness and street evangelism. He heard how they lost kids life due to reluctance to practice blood difusion. law was made for man and not man for the law.
Jesus ends the search and returns back .
