  2. Origin & Nature of Christ • Called Him John • Compliment to anyone else • Said He was a prophet • Matthew 16:14; John 3:2; 4:19 • More than a prophet – John 4:25,26 • Called Joseph’s son • Matthew 13:53-56; Luke 4:16-22 • Why these mistakes? • Looked on outward appearance • Matthew 16:16,17

  3. Purpose of Christ • To be an earthly king • Heal all the sick & feed the poor • John 6:2, 11-15, 26 • Could have healed all the sick & fed all the hungry. Why didn’t He? • Came for far greater purpose • Not to make poor rich but to save rich and poor • Not to side with oppressed but to save guilty

  4. Origin & Nature of church • Say started by Alexander Campbell • Say it is just another denomination • Think should do as denominations do • Why do people think this? • Look on outward appearance • We have building; regular services; distinctive teaching; etc. • How know the truth? • By what God has revealed – Matthew 16:17

  5. Purpose of the church • Think it should engage in social; recreational; political & community projects • Most have nothing better to do; some even reject the Bible • Has a far greater purpose • 1 Timothy 3:15 • Men look to what “flesh & blood” reveals rather than what God reveals

  6. What Must I Do To Be Saved? • Hear the gospel (Romans 10:17) • Believe Jesus is Christ (Acts 8:37) • Repent of your sins (Acts 17:30) • Confess your faith (Matthew 10:32) • Baptized for remission of sins (Acts 2:38) • Faithful unto death (Revelation 2:10)
