The Following Question Comes From Zach K.
I had a few questions I would like you to check out.
I’ve been watching your videos and I was listening about when you were talking about grace and works and that there are works of faith and works of merit. And, correct me if I am wrong, but the works of faith were those God commanded for salvation (Hear the gospel, Believe the Gospel, Repent, Confess, Be baptized…ect).
I also understand from your videos that baptism, for it to be valid, must be in the Church of Christ, and for the Church of Christ to be valid it must adhere to everything in the New Testament, for example, worshiping without musical instruments, taking communion on the right day of the week, working the way the NT says to work, being silent where the Bible is silent. And, it is to my understanding that these things may not be works of faith.
My question is, if my salvation depends on me being baptized correctly in the Church of Christ, which has the right authority, and the Church of Christ’s authority depends on its ability to adhere to the New Testament, doesn’t my salvation ultimately depend on my ability or, at the very least, the collective ability of the members of the Church to follow everything commanded in the New Testament to maintain its authority?
Thanks and I look forward to your response!
