A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST
22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him
to be head over all things to the church,
23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
EPHESIANS 1 : 22, 23
27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church,
not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing,
but that she should be holy and without blemish.
EPHESIANS 5 : 27
24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you,
and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the
afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body,
which is the church,
COLOSSIANS 1 : 24
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE
TO THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST
12 Then they understood that He did not
tell them to beware of the leaven of bread,
but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
MATTHEW 16 : 12
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?
And what communion has light with darkness?
2 CORINTHIANS 6 : 14
7 You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you.
9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
GALATIANS 5 : 7 – 9
ALL FOR THE SAKE OF UNITY
THESE SO CALLED MAN OF GOD
LEAD PEOPLE TO EAT & DRINK
JUDGMENT ON THEMSELVES
27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup
of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be
guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let
him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy
manner eats and drinks judgment to himself,
not discerning the Lord’s body.
1 CORINTHIANS 11 : 27 - 29
