Did you know that it’s possible for folks to make a false denomination because of a misunderstanding of the Bible?
Matt 22:23-33 The Sadducees made a Jewish denomination because they didn’t take notice of the tense of a verb.
Jesus said to them, “Ye do Err, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God.” (Matt 22:29)
“Moreover he said, I AM the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.” (Exo 3:6)
Jesus is pointing out that God said “I AM,” not “I WAS.”
The Sadducees entire system of belief about salvation was error.
Acts 23:7 “And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided. 8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.”
Are you making an error in your faith not knowing the scriptures?
How would we know?
Shipwrecked their faith: 1Tim 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
Neglected Salvation: Heb 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;.
Fallen from Grace: Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Departed from God: Heb 3:12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;
Drawn back to perdition: Heb 10:39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
