He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord (I Corinthians 1:31).

People are continually asking me what denomination I am with. “Which religious group sponsors you?” they query. Or, “But don’t you belong to some church?” some of them with almost a look of terror on their faces! And my answer is nearly always the same: “No, I belong to the man Christ Jesus.”

The Body of Christ’s Distinct Purpose

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

It is assumed almost universally that the “Church” of the present dispensation is at once “the Body of Christ” and “the Bride.” Traditional theology, unscriptural hymnology, amazing disregard for correct interpretation, intolerant zeal for dogmatic human opinions together with careless, defective instruction, have united for generations in perpetuating a phase of teaching possessing no foundation in or authority from Holy Scripture and perpetrating a system that plunges multitudes of believers in dire confusion concerning the plan, purpose and program of God for “the church which is His Body” as distinct from the Divine purpose concerning another out-calling known as “the Bride, the Lamb’s wife.”

“The Bride of Christ” is absolutely unknown to Scripture. Not appearing in Scripture, the term should find no place in the believer’s thought or vocabulary.

“The Bride” is absolutely unknown to the terminology of the “Prison Epistles.”
