Church


Man cannot make things perfect

Man Cannot Make Things Perfect

  • From a material or spiritual viewpoint

  • It is not in man to ………Jeremiah 10:23O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walks to direct his steps.

  • Man could not create a perfect plan of salvation

  • He also cannot create a “perfect church”


But god is perfect and can

BUT … GOD is perfect and can!

  • Psalms 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

  • Everything he does is perfect

  • He can and did create a perfect plan of salvation

  • He created a “PERFECT CHURCH”


How you might say

How, you might say?

Simple, if you are God!


Built upon a perfect foundation

Built upon a “perfect” foundation

  • Apostles and Prophets are not the perfect foundation, not the foundation at all

  • Ephesians 2:20And are built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

  • They laid the foundation but they are not the foundation

  • Difference between foundations of man and that which comes from GOD


Yes they laid the foundation

Yes, they laid the foundation

  • 1 Corinthians 3:10-11According to the grace of God which is given to me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another builds thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereupon.  11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.


Yes they laid the foundation1

Yes, they laid the foundation

  • Peter, Paul and the rest of the Apostles had a hand in laying it but they are not what was laid, for Christ is the foundation

  • Vs 11

  • It was not Joseph Smith or Peter or Paul

  • The foundation is not mere men or the teachings of men, but of Christ !


Jesus christ is the foundation

Jesus Christ is the foundation

  • Matthew 16:18And I say also to you, That you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

  • If the church is built upon the rock, then we must know what rock it is

  • The rock is the foundation – Christ is the rock – the chief cornerstone


Jesus christ is the foundation1

Jesus Christ is the foundation

  • Peter is not the rock!

  • He didn’t die for our sins!

  • Neither did Paul or Phillip!

  • The Apostles laid the foundation of Christ by preaching about his coming.

  • Acts 8:5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ to them.

  • Many today do not “preach Christ”


Governed by perfect head

Governed by perfect head

  • “John the Baptist” is not the head of the perfect church

  • Luke 7:28For I say to you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.

  • “Peter” is not the head of the perfect church

  • Acts 10:25-26And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.  26But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.


Governed by perfect head1

Governed by perfect head

  • “The Pope” is not the head of the perfect church as believed by so many today

  • He is the head of the Roman Catholic church and is revered by his followers but he is not the foundation of the Lord’s Church!

  • It belongs to him

  • Ephesians 5:23-25For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.  24Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.  25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

The perfect church

Ephesians 5:23-32For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.  24Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.  25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,  27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.  28So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loves himself.  29For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord the church:  30For we are members of hisbody, of his flesh, and of his bones.  31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.  32This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
