It is depressing to witness today’s religious landscape. Modern flavors of so-called Christianity are saturated with hypocrisy, ignorance, and outright error. These days it seems as though a different church is on every street corner, with each apparently teaching things that contradict the other. It would appear that the present state of Christianity is more concerned about lining the pockets of church leaders and appealing to the selfish motives of the membership than it is about actually serving God.
Christianity shouldn’t be a confusing jumble of beliefs and conflicting denominations. It shouldn’t seek to meet the self-motivated demands of the public at the expense of doing what God demands. Churches need to return to serving only God and regain their focus on keeping His commands. Human traditions, man-written creeds, and religious denominations must be stripped of their counterfeit authority and replaced merely by the plain and simple teachings of the Bible.
With this conviction, I intend to use this website as a means to promote and defend simple New Testament Christianity. Once the Bible has become the only authority in one’s faith, Christianity is remarkably beautiful and easy to understand. True religious unity – not today’s artificial and phony kind – is only possible by practicing Christianity that has been modeled after the 1st century church, as read about in the scriptures. It is my hope that this blog will be an attractive appeal to the hearts of those who wish to faithfully serve our Lord. May all of God’s children surrender themselves completely to the His Word. – Ben
“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:1-6)
