October 30 – 2 Timothy 4:2-4; “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
It is utter foolishness to think the church has a certain name, i.e. theLDSChurch. The body of Christ is the bride of Christ without a certain name. You can find many bad and many good churches throughout the world and we judge them by the Word of God, not some ‘contemporary revelation’, nor by a ‘fullness or part truth’. It’s either the truth or it isn’t and it’s easy enough to become lazy in this life to not have to do the right thing. Be longsuffering my friend!
And by the way, where in the Bible does God ever refer to Himself by the name of “Deity”?
By saying there is truth in all churches; they have contradicted what Smith said God told him in the woods that day. All churches are wrong…no one on earth speaks truth…everyone is the whore of Babylon…
“True doctrines are always found in the Lord’s true Church because the channel of communication between God and his people is open. False doctrines abound in churches which deny contemporary revelation and consequently have no sure way of checking various views and concepts to see if they conform to the mind and will of Deity. There is, of course, much truth in all churches, but those churches which do not have the fulness of the gospel, have much error and falsehood intermingled with such truths as they happen to have. And the fulness of salvation can come to those only who believe and conform to the fulness of the Lord’s revealed doctrines.”
