    of Mere Doctrinalism Session 3 Grace and Truth the Biblical Key to Sound Doctrine The Bible makes clear that even biblical truth is error if not being existentially realised in the lives of those believing it If you thought you had an understanding of what sound doctrine is then think again The chances are that you have never actually realised what the Bible s own definition of it is and

    not primarily about the intellectual acceptance of doctrinal truth Indeed such is the unbiblical error of what Beresford has come to refer to as mere Doctrianity the inevitable and tragic result of the Greek thinking so regrettably propagated by the Early Church Fathers No being a Christian is about knowing loving and obeying Jesus more and more in the power of the Spirit through the actual experiential living out of

  • FAQ1 - Are you right?
    are wrong we likewise think that those who practice church life other than the way we are advocating are when assessed strictly on the basis of the teaching of scripture wrong Answer No 2 No Or at least not in the sense in which the question is being asked After all more and more believers across the world are gathering themselves into churches just like we are describing and advocating so it is actually far from being the case that we are in any way on our own in all this So it isn t a case of us thinking that we alone are right if only for the simple reason that many others in the kingdom of God though admittedly still a pretty small minority are doing exactly the same thing But of course the question itself is actually a bit of a red herring because the issue here should be purely what God s Word says concerning church life and not how many people are or are not living and practicing accordingly What matters here shouldn t be whether or not we or anyone else are right or wrong about church issues or anything else for that matter but whether or not we are doing what the Bible teaches Think of it like this As believers we are by definition saying to the whole world Jesus alone is the way to God and we are right concerning this and everyone else who believes to the contrary is wrong And of course the thing to grasp is that what prevents this from being the most monumental arrogance on the part of Christians is the fact that the statement just happens to be true We are absolutely right and correct in our assertion that Jesus alone is the way to God because we make it on the basis of the authority of God s Word and we are not therefore being arrogant or proud in so doing though one could of course proclaim this truth in a wrong attitude The question is Is it true If it is then it is quite simply the case that we are right and that everyone else is wrong Just simple logic If something can be established as being true then anything contrary to it is wrong as are those who adhere to anything contrary to it So let s take a closer look at the above question and see if we can divest it of its prejudicial loaded and illogical built in insinuation that should the answer be that we may indeed well be right and everyone else wrong this would somehow mean that we were even yet wrong in some way and by definition arrogant We have already stated that we are not alone in how we go about church life anyway and that many other believers across the world are doing exactly the same thing But let s just imagine for one moment and I emphasize that this is now purely

  • FAQ2 Are you in danger of being exclusive?
    exclusive attitude which we would believe to be wrong in the extreme No we are happy to fellowship with any believers quite irrespective of matters either doctrinal or pertaining to church life Our fellowship with each other as believers is in Jesus and in Him alone Your first point about becoming fully biblical as regarding church practice but without being exclusive is vital Our fellowship with each other as believers is based on precisely that one point that we are indeed believers When it comes to having fellowship together as brothers and sisters then knowing Jesus is enough and no secondary issues be it what churches ought to be like or anything else should come into the picture Even if fellow believers are in churches which are far from being what the Bible teaches they ought to be like we are nevertheless having fellowship with them as individuals and not with their corporate churches We know believers in for instance the Anglican Church but our fellowship is with them personally as individuals and we see their Anglicanism as being irrelevant to that Basically we don t personally give a monkeys uncle about what kind of church someone is part of If they are following Jesus then that is enough for us to enjoy fellowship with them quite regardless of secondary issues So in our efforts to bring into being more and more biblical churches we do so with our arms open wide in every respect to other believers We welcome them as visitors at any time and would obviously rejoice should they decide to leave churches which are not biblical in order to be part of ones which are Likewise how could someone who practices believers baptism not be pleased when someone who practices infant baptism sees the light concerning it and makes the appropriate changes However should they be happy to remain in unbiblical set ups then we truly bless them accordingly and just concentrate on our personal relationship with them However important it is to get church practice right and we believe it to be absolutely vital it nevertheless doesn t in any way constitute grounds as to whom we do or do not share fellowship with We must however be clear that to take the Bible s path regarding church practice will sadly place us in the position of at least running the risk that some believers will make not continuing to do so the condition for their continued fellowship with us Some Christians do I fear get very angry to see people leave the status quo church set ups and when that happens we must be prepared to take it on the chin Indeed we must be prepared as well to even lose friends for the Lord s sake if need be Yet we must nevertheless continue to make it as clear as we possibly can that the door to ongoing fellowship remains wide open from our side and that we do not see fellowship between
