The basis for the worship of the Blessed Sacrament, promoted and practiced in Roman Catholicism, is that what appears to be "bread" is actually the body of the second person of the trinity, Jesus Christ. So while it appears that the devout may be worshipping bread, they are, in fact worshiping, or venerating God. Veneration of the Blessed Sacrament is ...

Each Weekly Meeting (that is, each congregation) has a clerk who is regularly elected by the members of the Meeting to lead all business conducted by the Meeting.

What is the particular basis or argument for this belief? Is there any biblical basis for this? I once saw an interview with Graham Edge of the Moody Blues. He was describing a choice they made for the direction of their music back in the 60s. He said that they chose to follow cerebral music (citing a comparison to Simon and Garfunkel) as opposed to ...

Since certain types of music, like rock, were designed to make the music physically compelling and easier to dance to, many people believe they are not edifying for a believer. They believe that such music is trying to appeal to the flesh, especially in a sensual sense that Christians should avoid. Also, if such styles are wrong, then it would follow that ...

In the words of Nat King Cole, "the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return." According to John 1 John 4:8 and 16, God is love. As an expression of his love, God created. You see, the funny thing about love is it is difficult to be love without having someone to love. But love is a fickle thing. It requires we take risk and ...

The Bible states that we are to "believe" in the Lord in order to have salvation. It is therefore extremely important what God says about himself sot that we can believe it. If we believe in something other than what God said he was, then we do not actually believe in Him. This is why the doctrine of the Trinity is so very important. As A.W. Tozer puts it ...

The traditional Catholic Church says that Muslims worship devils not the true God. For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: Psa 95:5 Pope Callixtus III: “I vow to… exalt the true Faith, and to extirpate the diabolical sect of the reprobate and faithless Mahomet [Islam] in the East.” Pope Eugene IV, Council of Basel, Session 19, Sept. ...

Some people like to say that because the gods of Judaism, Christianity and Islam share a heritage then they're the same God. Other people point to the big doctrinal differences between them to say they're not the same. I have to go with the second group. It's kind of like the difference between The Republic of China and The People's Republic of China: both ...

Unfortunately, I see this author using incorrect history of the Lord's church. There "is" only one church that Christ stated He would build (Matt. 16:18) and His church which is "The Body of Christ" and is made up of faithful believers who subscribe to the single doctrine of the bible. This assembly began on the day of Pentecost and still exist today and ...
