People forget how fast you did a job--but they remember how well you did it. --Howard W. Newton th " "~) Truor Traditwn . ] "Why do Matthew 15:3 | ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? '] The Kingdom Of Christ Is Future ..... I It'lhl Truth Or Tradition? #3 -,'l One of the most popular teachings in the religious world today is that Christ is coming back to earth to establish His Kingdom. and will reign for a thousand years here on earth, from Jerusalem. Is that Truth or Tradition? The View. The Church was not in God's original plan, but wa~, established temporarily, instead of the Kingdom, to last until Christ comes again to set up His Kingdom. Truth or Tradition? Was The Church "Plan B"? "According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love." (Ephesians 1:4). Isn't Paul saying here that he and the church in Ephesus had been chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world'? Is the church, then, not a part of God's etet'nal plan? Was The Church A Stop-Gap Measure? "To the intent that now un to the princtpalities and powers m heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Ephcsians 3:10-11). Isn't Paul saying that the church is part of God's eternal purpose? Was The Church A Part Of His Eternal Plan? In his farewell to the eldersofEphesus, Paulwrote: "Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood." (Acts 20:28). In explaining his vision of the beast of the sea, John writes: "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of the l i fe of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." (Revelation 13:8). Since the Church was purchased with the blood of Christ, and the shedding of His blood was planned from the foundation of the world, wouldn't that make the Church a part of God's eternal purpose? What do you think? The Church was a temporary fix, and the Kingdom is still in the future ..... Truth Or Tradition? Steer Creek Church of Chrkst. 3466 Rosedale Road. Stumptown, WV 25267.
