Is your foundation the same as the Apostle Paul talks about?
by Stewart Topping
With things moving so fast it is so hard to stay connected with any one thing. Christianity is being attacked from all directions; TV, Magazines, Sitcoms, Movies and Newspapers where people have so different views. Some are believers and some are not! It’s no wonder that we have so many beliefs today. Doctrinal difference’s are the biggest problem with Christians .
However we do have the choice of what we regard as our core beliefs, regardless of what Church we go to. Paul said it quite well, that we must have the same foundation.
1 Corinthians 3:10 (KJV) According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
Here Paul is telling us that what he said is the foundation of our beliefs given to him by God in revelation. (the mystery) Core beliefs are very important things and can make the difference between Heaven or Hell.
Some just want a Fire Insurance policy, so they will escape Hell. They don’t want to check the book themselves. Some say I can’t understand, it’s to hard. So they take the word of someone else. That why we have hundreds of Churches with different beliefs about salvation, the simple approach to making peace with God. But if you only believe what someone told you are your convinced that when you go to cash in the Fire Policy, God will take it.
It should be easy to establish our core beliefs. Do a quick review, write done what you believe about salvation and then study your Bible to confirm it. Stop and ask yourselves, what do I believe and why do I believe it? You don’t believe every commercial on TV; why is that?
