THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH PART VIII
As you, therefore, have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. Colossians 2:6-8
For eons, man has passed down his traditions and doctrines on an unsuspecting population of deceived people. Deceived themselves, they apply their tradition to each new generation, each time watering down the truth a little more until we are in the midst of a false and dangerous church deceiving and being deceived!
For the most part, the modern-day evangelical church's doctrinal statement consists of one praying a prayer, getting baptized, joining the church and tithing. Instead of making disciples of Jesus Christ, Sunday school has become discipleship which for the most part is a dead work! Jesus said, "Go into all the world and make disciples!" Sadly, most are trapped in a building led by a pastor who convinces the congregation to stay and not obey the Lord to Go!
In the beginning, the first one hundred twenty were all filled with power and authority to give witness to the resurrection and to perform miracles, signs and wonders that resulted in thousands coming to the Lord, so many that they had to sell their possessions and invite new converts into their homes having all things in common!
For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him who is the Head of all principality and power. Colossians 2:9,10
