Bible Verses

“John said to him, ‘Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.’ Jesus replied, ‘Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us.’” — Mark 9:38-40

“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism” – Ephesians 4:4-5

Christian Bible Lesson Overview

It is easy to criticize other churches for specific interpretations of scripture or for expressing details of their beliefs.  If our main objective is to inform as many people as possible about Christian Lessons, then detailed disputes about specific Bible Verses should not take away from communicating with more people.

This does not mean overlooking statements that are against Christian Principles.  We should be united in our efforts to reach as many people as possible while maintaining our fundamental beliefs.  It is assumed that all Christian Churches believe in fundamental Christian Lessons.  That is what unites us as Christians. 

Christian Bible Lesson for Today

I am grateful to my mother and father who raised me as a Christian.  During my childhood, we moved to different cities several times.  We joined new churches each time.  All the Churches we attended were Christian Churches, but they were of different denominations.  Some were Baptist Churches, some were non-denominational, two were Lutheran Churches, and I am now a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. 

Although I attended over twenty different Churches in my life, I believe the basic concepts were shared by all of them.  I am very happy with the Seventh Day Adventist Church because of its commitment to living by Christian teaching, the inspirational support from the entire membership, the resources for Bible Study, and the closeness of the entire congregation. 

However, I believe all Christian Churches are united in their effort to help people in need, deliver the Christian Message, and reach as many people as possible.  I am a Christian who is a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Christian Bible Lesson Summary

It is important to remember that our objective is to help people in need and promote the Christian Message.  We must work together among all Christian Churches to reach as many people as possible and to help those people in need.  We are not competing among ourselves.
