A CHURCHGOER IS NOT A CHRISTIAN
FIRST BIBLE LESSON: JOHN 4: 21
"Jesus said unto her: Woman believe me the hour cometh, when
ye shall neither in this mountain, nor at Jerusalem, worship
the Father."
SECOND BIBLE LESSON: JOHN 14:21
"He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that
loveth me; and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father,
and I will love him and manifest myself to him."
GOLDEN TEXT: JOHN 13:35
"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye
have love one to another."
This significant gospel is an embodiment of the work expected
to be done by every Christian. Be not deceived by any person
to visit Jerusalem, or to be called a Christian, a Buddhist or
a Hindu. Such nomenclatures are useless. When one claims to be
a member of Roman Catholic, Apostolic, Methodist or any of the
orthodox churches, then it would be construed to mean that he
does not understand the gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. At
John 4:21
, it is said: "..... the hour cometh when ye shall
neither in this mountain, nor at Jerusalem, worship the
Father."
It is ridiculous therefore, to tell someone that you are
attending one church or the other, and that the church is
located miles away. When one claims that one's church is
located far away, or that Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is
about two or three miles away or cannot be found in the area,
from whom did one receive such a teaching? If those who
worshipped God on the mountain and in Jerusalem had pleased
God, then the statement as recorded at John 4:21 would not
have been made. Hence worshipping God is neither done on the
mountain nor in Jerusalem. This is in line with the scriptural
notation that :
"Wherefore, if they say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert;
go not forth, behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it
not. For as the lightening cometh even unto the east, and
shinneth even unto the west; so shall the coming of the Son of
man be."
(Matt.24:26-27).
Just as BCS is wrongfully regarded as a church, most people
wrongfully regard 34 Ambo Street, Calabar, as the world
headquarters of BCS. However, neither is BCS a Church nor a 34
Ambo Street the Headquarters of BCS. In fact,
no place serves
as the dwelling place of God,
hence worshipping God at any
particular place is strongly discouraged.
It should be borne in mind that Our Lord Jesus Christ neither
attended any church nor recommended any for people and to
clarify this point, He said,
"....I sanctify, that they also might be sanctified through
the truth."
(John 17:19).
We are the house of God and He dwells in those who keep His
commandments.
There is no need directing any person to any
building; for God does not dwell in buildings. Rather
He
dwells in every sinless individual.
You may recall the
statement made by Our Lord Jesus Christ when His disciples
drew His attention to the magnificent buildings of the temple
at Jerusalem. He said,"Verily I say onto you, there shall not
be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown
down."
(Matt 24:2).
And true to His words those buildings which symbolized the
work of darkness, were completely demolished. Therefore, if
these buildings were symbolically destroyed, why should other
ones be erected? Churches are centers of deceit. No church
denomination or prayer house practices the true love of God.
Claiming to belong to one sect or the other is of no
importance.
The important thing is for one to forsake sin and
adhere strictly to the injunctions of God.
Therefore, when Our
Lord Jesus Christ said that God shall neither be worshipped on
the mountain nor at Jerusalem, He implied that everybody
should purify himself and get united with God, the Father.
The words of God can be preached at any place. There is no
point rebuilding what had been demolished, naming it the house
of God. Whoever does this is overshadowed by darkness. Instead
of wasting your money in these useless ventures, it is better
and more profitable to use it in helping the poor and other
less-privileged ones. Remember Our Lord Jesus Christ had
instructed that whoever has two coats should give one to the
one who has none. Besides, do no evil to anybody, and love all
equally."
JUST AS THE DISCIPLES OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST DID, EVERY
CHRISTIAN IS EXPECTED TO GO FROM PLACE TO PLACE AND
DISSEMINATE THE WORDS OF GOD. WHEREVER PEOPLE ARE GATHERED, GO
TO SUCH PLACES AND MINISTER UNTO THEM.
Do not tell lies, do
not steal, do not fornicate, and do not hate or commit any
other sin. Our Lord Jesus Christ had been attending feasts and
