HOW CAN WE ALL SAY THE SAME THING?
By John McKay
Scripture Reading: I Corinthians 1:10
"Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment." How can we say the same thing when there are so many different positions on remarriage after divorce, Scripture versions, contemporary music, and ecumenical evangelism. It is not enough to say that we must follow Christ Who is the Head of the Body, because all claim to follow Him! Neither is it enough to say that we should follow the Apostle Paul as he follows the Lord Jesus. Certainly most Bible-believing people claim that the Epistles of Paul are extremely important to them! The solution actually lies in what the Lord Jesus gave to Paul to instruct us about our personal attitudes. Don't think of yourself more highly than you ought to think (Romans 12:3). "Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another. .. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits" (Romans '12:10-16).
We must determine the essential doctrines of the Bible and obey from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered to us from the Lord Jesus by His true teachers! At the same time, we cannot fuss with one another. We must submit ourselves one to another in the fear of God. Read Romans 6:17 and Ephesians 5:17-21 in the context. By the grace and wisdom of God; we must find that balance between standing firm for the Truth (as we have been taught it) and getting along with those who are saved and walking orderly according to the Word of God.

Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
