which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus”. We don’t seem to hear it referred to as the “The Way” anymore. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. There are 1000’s of churches out there all calling themselves Christian, and preaching doctrines that contradict each other, and the bible. The Apostle Paul would also write, 2Ti 4:3-4, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” So “The Way” was so distinct that it was referred to as a pattern. When I walk in a Wal-Mart, or MC Donald’s, we see a pattern, because most of them have the same floor layout. The bathrooms are over there, and the Sporting goods are here you take your order there and check out is also over there. When you go to a different place that has changed up the order of things, and placed it differently, it is confusing and not a pleasant experience.
Jesus explained to his disciples that He would be leaving and they knew the way to where he was going. Thomas humbled himself, spoke up and said, No we don’t know the way… Joh 14:1-6, ¶ "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God,
believe also in Me. 2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not
so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 "And if I go and
prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where
I am, there you may be also. 4 ¶ "And where I go you know, and the way you
know."5 Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?"Notice Jesus response: 6 Jesus said to him, "I am the
way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
The Way is again so distinct that the Holy Spirit would have the Apostle Paul
write concerning the gospel of Christ, Ga 1:6 ¶ I marvel that you are turning
away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different
gospel, 7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to
pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach
any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other
gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. In the eyes of
God no one, not even an angel in heaven has the right to change the pattern,
“The Way” the Gospel of Christ. And when anyone does, just like it confuses you
when you go into a Wal-Mart that has not followed the pattern, it also confuses
the honest person who is seeking to find and obey the Truth. Jesus compares
those who claim to know truth, and yet don’t as blind people. Mt 15:12-14 Then
His disciples came and said to Him, "Do You know that the Pharisees were
offended when they heard this saying?" 13 But He answered and said, "Every plant
which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.14 "Let them alone.
They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will
fall into a ditch." We need to understand what “The Way” is, and remain
faithful to Him! If all the world would have done that we would be living in a
better world today
Denominationalism divides and confuses, following Jesus his way will unite and create belief. Joh 17:21 "that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me."
