    Prominent Marks of the True Church of the Lord Today
    ______________________________________________________________
    1. In the true church of the Lord, there is no man pastor/s who will teach his brothers nor will there be any one to act as leader, but in the True Church of the Lord, the Lord God Almighty who is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ is the One, the only Good Pastor himself who personally teaches each and everyone in the church and the Lord God is the only One high and above all mankind and all creations. The Lord God is the only keeper and overseers of the flock and the only One adding or deducting a member/s to the church. Nobody knows the location and status of the church members for only the Lord knows it and those whom the Lord wishes to.

    2. In the true church of the Lord, each and everyone is equal to and/or is at par with each other. None is poor neither rich, none is sick nor healthy, none is humbled nor exalted, none is big nor small, but all is whole and already healed in spirit. If there is any impairment between and amongst themselves, they are only in flesh, but not in spirit.

    3. In the true church of the Lord, no one is allowed to explain the holy scriptures/bible and teach same to his brother for the Lord God is the only One who will teach each and everyone among mankind and the only duty of any member is just to tell the world to call on to and to go to the Lord God directly and seek the Lord true to their heart, soul, and mind. If there will be any explanation of the scriptures/bible to be made (like in a bible study which is allowed by the Lord), same should be treated as only their own explanation and should be kept to themselves. Never at all that same should be made doctrine/s of the church for in the church of the Lord, there is no doctrine whatsoever because the Lord God himself is the only Teacher/Good Pastor and the teachings will always come from the Lord God alone.

    4. In the true church of the Lord, none is boastful saying that they are the only ones to be saved and outside of their church is no salvation and they do not mingle in any troublesome activities, but rather they spread the words that the Lord is uttering to them in guiding their fellow men to the way leading to the kingdom of God.

    All that will be true in Heaven.

    In the meantime, down here, Baptists are about the closest you're gonna get to it.

    How about defining a true NewTestament church on this old earth.

    This is real on earth today in our life

    I would like you to know that it is happening right now here on earth wherein our Good Pastor and Teacher today in our life is the Lord God Jesus Christ and He is exactly the One teaching us today as He did to apostle Paul then.

    A true Church of the Lord not only in the New Testament but in all ages is the Church whose Head and Good Pastor/Teacher is the Lord God Jesus Christ himself (no man pastors) and the Lord God is also its Overseer and Keeper at the same time. This Church is not registered in any government agencies of the whole world but only being keep by the Lord God Jesus Christ himself. For anyone who wishes to find this Church, he/she must come to directly to the Lord God Jesus Christ because the Lord God is the One adding and/or deducting any member of His own Church. I am saying this based on the Lord God Jesus Christ himself who taught us these things and this does not come from the bible.

    And here I was going to say the true mark of the church was subscription to the Book of Concord because it the correct exposition of scripture.

    It would appear that Scorpio is presenting extra-biblical revelation. This has already been tried: Joseph Smith, Mary Baker Eddy and even Ellen White. We ended up with cults.

    Is this more plagiarism Scorpio?
    Your profile indicates you do not belong to a church, so how are you in any position to know what one is?
    What is a church? Define the word?
    Did you know that every book in the New Testament apart from the gospels is written about local churches, to local churches, or to pastors of local churches. There is no such thing as a "true church" strictly speaking." You have no concept whatsoever of what a "church" is.

    What you are speaking is only concept of men about the church but not the concept of God about His own church. You can call on direct to God to know from God what I'm saying here. The bible can do nothing about this topic because the bible cannot teach us the truth about the real Church of the Lord today in our own time.

    Both of these guys headed their own church while I myself head nothing at all because the Lord God who teaches us now is the Head of His Church to which the Lord God add us in.

    Scorpio, You are still quoting extra-biblical knowledge and hence make yourself an authority, a church. This is false doctrine and very dangerous.

    Try reading scripture and praying for understanding of what God has authorized to be read. It is called the Bible for a reason. Without the Bible you have no authority to speak of things about the church. You are a cult in yourself.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    But your plagiarized (sinful) source has become your own authority, rather than God's authoriy. Like Satan you oppose the very authority that God has given to learn about the church. To state that "The Bible can do nothing about this topic because the bible cannot teach us the truth about the real church of the Lord in our own time," is a lie straight from the pit of hell. It is Satanic. It is the mark of a cult. It is what other people call gnosticism. You claim you have knowledge that the Bible that comes from God outside of God's revelation to mankind. That is one of the earliest heresies in the church. To believe so makes you a heretic. Strong words, yes. But they must be said. You have spouted off some very heretical doctrine here and it must be exposed for the good of all who are reading this.
    You authority is not the Bible; it is yourself. It is selfish, humanistic, and gnostic. It comes from Satan and not God. Why do you call yourself a Christian when you are not? No Christian would have these beliefs.

    Scorpia, I'm curious.

    Please explain how the Lord Jesus taught you. Dreams, visions, voices in the night? Are you claiming direct revelation as Paul did? Or does the Holy Spirit speak to you as he does today's charismatic preachers? Does this teaching just sort of pop into your mind? And how can you be sure it's the HS at work, or demons?

    I'm sure you're familiar with the Scriptures. Have you ever been taught anything by your Lord contrary to what's in the Bible? Or anything that adds clarity to the Scriptures?

    Are you the only one who gets these teachings? Can I get them? Do you know anybody else who gets taught by God directly?

    Your answers to these questions will be helpful in this discussion.
