How the “Church of Christ” will be reabsorbed back into Roman Catholicism

The “Church of Christ” religion teaches the damnable heresy of baptismal regeneration, which perverts God’s plan of redemption by teaching that one can be saved by being baptized, whereas the Bible says one can only be saved by God’s grace, thru His gift of faith in Jesus’ merits ALONE. Baptism is only a symbolic ordinance that declares one has already been regenerated by the Holy Spirit, Who alone can apply the merits of Jesus’ sacrifice to our account, so that we’re enabled to obey the gospel call to repent of sins and follow Jesus IN FAITH.

Scripture reveals that the “Church of Christ” religion commits a “negative inference fallacy” concerning Mark 16:16, because Scripture never says one can’t be saved unless they’re baptized. However, it does clearly state that one can’t be saved unless they believe (e.g. John 3:18, 36; 6:53-54, 8:24, Mark 16:16). And one can only have saving faith if they’ve been regenerated by the Holy Spirit, NOT by baptism (Titus 3:5).

Heretical “Church of Christ” creeds on baptismal regeneration stem from Roman Catholicism.

Here are just a few citations from the Roman Catholic Catechism that coincides with their creeds:

  • “the sacraments of the New Covenant are necessary for salvation (#1129, p.  292).
  • “Baptism is necessary for salvation…. The church does not know any other means other than baptism that assures entry into eternal beatitude” (#1257 p.  320).
  • “By baptism all sins are forgiven, original sin and all personal sins, as well as all punishment for sin.” (#1263 p.  321).
  • The Church bears within itself and “administers” the totality of the means of salvation” (#868 p.  230), …….(which coincides with the usually silent but practiced “Church of Christ” doctrine ofDivine Absolution” by means of a “Church of Christ” mediator who can “administer” the necessary requirements for salvation).

By divine providence, the silent but deadly creeds within the “Church of Christ” are finally being revealed in a “Church of Christ” publication called “House to House.” (Go to www.housetohouse.com). And you will find that in (Vol.18, No.2) they mention “Divine Absolution” on the very front page, where it’s said that the apostles offered the people “Divine Absolution” by offering to baptize them!!

“Divine Absolution” and the false “freewill” doctrine are purely Roman Catholic Doctrines with the sole purpose of exalting man over God, which reveals a spirit of antichrist. In this respect, the “Church of Christ” never completely broke away from Roman Catholicism and is gradually being led back into it thru these heresies.

God’s Word reveals that there is only one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus (1Tim.2:5). Only He can administer what’s necessary for our salvation (saving faith), for He obtained it and all other spiritual blessings that accompany salvation (repentance, obedience, etc.), so that those who are His are able to believe through grace (Acts 18:27, Rom.8:32, 2Cor.3:5, Eph.1:3, 4:8, Phil.4:19).

Anyone involved in damnable heresy cannot enter heaven (Gal.5:20-21, 2Pet.2:1). Anyone who believes a false gospel cannot be saved. The true gospel is all about what Jesus has done to save His people and enable them to obey, not what we do by our own “freewill” to merit salvation. The true gospel is a call to repentance and faith in Jesus’ merits alone. Pray that God will have mercy on you and grant you repentance and the gift of faith to believe in the merits of Jesus ALONE so that you can be saved………… Do not delay, time is running out!!

  1. preachin’ to the choir! I was in that church for better of 10 years. Ours taught the baptism thing, but more than that, replacement theology, preterism, and amellinialism all mushed up into one thing. The book of Revelation was “just” a story of good vs. evil and good wins, Danial is all fulfilled…Jesus came to earth to set up His kingdom(not die), so because the Jews “killed” him, all prophecy about them is off and the kingdom is set up in heaven. Not sure what took me so long to leave. I didn’t know all the truth when I got there I guess. The Methodist church I am in now is not much better,and I usually come home with my panties in a bunch!! There is no place else to attend. There are a select few preachers I watch on the internet, and lots of studying myself, Holy Spirit says He will teach us anyways, but I long for someone to fellowship with and talk Bible with. Everywhere I look in my town I see Rick Warren, the message bible, Word of Faith, and oh yea, they all loved the new age Jesus flick that came out awhile back. Come quickly Lord Jesus!!! Thank you for your blog, I have enjoyed it for a long time!

    • Hi Jamie,
      You’re right Methodist is no better. In fact, most churches have the same basic theology called Arminianism, which is totally against Scripture.
      You may want to do an in-depth study on the differences between Arminianism and Calvinism, which will help you to draw a clear line of distinction between what is false and what is truth. Doing the study myself really helped me to come out of all the cults.
      Let me know how it goes. And feel free to ask as many questions as you have, because your eternity depends on whether you are believing the true gospel.
      A book you may want to read concerning the “church of Christ” is “Campbelism, It’s history and heresies by Bob L. Ross. It is a classic on this subject.
