Absolutly true! I feel lead to tell you that I’ve spent time with Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, Methodists, and lots more than I could even name here and now. What is important is that the core of the Christian faith has never changed. The "essentials" are the same and that is what makes the difference. All true believers hold certain convictions in common and are un-wavering in their faith. Real believers are scattered all over, it seems from one corner of the world to another. What makes us the same is that we all believe in one God. Every single person I know on this site believes in the Lord Jesus Christ as God's only begotten and eternal Son. We all believe that the Spirit of God is God Himself, moving and working in many ways here on earth, from the beginning of creation to this very day. We believe that Jesus lived a sinless life, that He died willingly for the sins of the whole world, that He arose again from the dead, that He is now at the Father's right hand, and that He is coming again. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the very power of God to salvation for all who believe. It is my personal conviction that the people on this web site would give their lives for that belief because they know that those beliefs are ESSENTIAL to the Christian faith. But when it comes to "non-essential" belief's we see many different theologies come out. Some are "Cessationists", some are believers in Signs & Wonders, some are convinced that we must keep the Law and some believe we must attend church on Saturday instead of Sunday. Those non-essentials things will never ever be reconciled until Jesus comes again to take us home with Him. THEN we will realize how unimportant RELIGION really was. My encouragement to you would be for you to understand that we debate and argue back and forth because we are sinners, because we are fleshly, because we are often stupid (Especially ME). Being a Christian does not make us fully mature and wise, it just saves us and places us in God’s kingdom but still leaves us here in these flesh bodies. The good news is that as we walk with God and grow up into the knowledge of Christ, we have the opportunity each day to become more like Jesus Christ and less like the people we used to be. Some days we may not make much progress. But every day is a new opportunity to grow in God’s grace and to be closer to those who have accepted Him as their Lord and Saviour. The bottom line is really simple. Our church affiliation means nothing at all to God. Only the affiliation we have with Jesus Himself really matters. If we know and love Jesus, if we trust only in Him for eternal life and for the forgiveness of sin, then we are on the right path. But if we trust too much in our religion (no matter what religion that may be) we may still be very lost. As Dr. Billy Graham once said................. “Lots of really good Baptists and Catholics and Pentecostals and other religious people are going to die and go straight to hell.” Why? Because religion can't save you.
