Title: Just Another Church How the Lord


1
Just Another Church How the Lords People Lose
Their Distinctiveness
2
A Distinctive People
  • God wanted the nation of Israel to be
    distinctive, not just another nation (Lev.
    2023,26) some did not want this (1 Sam.
    85,20)
  • God wanted his people in the NT to be
    distinctive, not just another religious group (1
    Pet. 116 29) some did not want this
    (Rev. 2-3)
  • God wants the same of us today! Distinct not the
    same not identical separate different in
    nature or quality dissimilar

3
A Distinctive Church
  • Distinctive Savior and Head (Acts 412 Col.
    118)
  • Distinctive body (Eph. 122-23 44)
  • Distinctive doctrine (Gal. 16-9 2 Jn. 9-11)
  • Distinctive purpose (Eph. 210 1 Tim. 315)
  • Distinctive living (1 Cor. 12 2 Cor. 614 -
    71)
  • Distinctive destinies (Mt. 713-14 2546)

4
A Distinctive Church
  • The Lord built his church to be distinctive
    (Mt. 1513 1618)
  • When the Lords church loses its distinctiveness
    it ceases to be the Lords church (Rev. 24-5
    31)
  • How can this happen?

5
How A Church Loses Its Distinctiveness
  • Loss of Conviction
  • When the Lords church stops standing for truth
    and starts accepting error (Eph. 618)
  • When the Lords church is made up of cowards
    (Gal. 416)

6
How A Church Loses Its Distinctiveness
  • Lack of Clarity
  • Loss of conviction soon leads to lack of clarity
  • When the Lords church stops preaching the clear,
    unequivocal message of the gospel (1 Cor. 147-8)
  • When the Lords church is uncertain about truth
    (Jn. 832 1717)
  • When the Lords church presents its doctrine as
    Church of Christ tradition instead of truth

7
How A Church Loses Its Distinctiveness
  • Compromise
  • Lack of clarity and loss of conviction soon lead
    to compromise
  • When the Lords people want to mix the truth of
    Gods word with the error of the world (Neh. 62)

8
How A Church Loses Its Distinctiveness
  • Conformity
  • Lack of clarity, loss of conviction, and
    compromise soon lead to full-blown conformity
  • When the Lords people join hands with the world
    they cease to be the Lords church (Rom. 122
    Eph. 511 Jas. 44)
  • Social gospel, faith only salvation, instrumental
    music, Christmas and Easter observed religiously,
    etc.

Let Us Not Become Just Another Church
  • Distinction makes a difference (Acts 176)
  • Loss of distinctiveness means loss of dedication
    to the Lord Jesus Christ (Rev. 24)
  • Let us dare to be different!
