All the Christian denominations are not true Christian denominations. Because they are not following Christ. If they are following Christ they have to follow the word of God, The Holy Bible. In the bible God asked us to not to add to His word and not to take away from it. You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. (Deut. 4.2) "Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it. ( Deut. 12.32)
For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22. 18-19)
Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. (Proverb 30.6) According to this last quoting, if any church add any thing to his word and observe anything they become liars. If they are liars, what is the bible say to them. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. (John 8.44)
Now what are the things these churches added to the bible? If your church has a cross even as a symbol to show that your church is following Christ you have added to the bible. Worshiping to the cross came at about AD 325 when Helen the mother of Roman Emperor Constantine took out some buried crosses in Jerusalem, and said this is the cross Jesus was crucified. This happened about 300 years after Jesus Death and resurrection. See what Peter says about the Jesus death. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree. Acts 5.30 And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. Acts 10.39 Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb. Acts 13.29 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness --- by whose stripes you were healed. 1Pet 2.24 What is the cross after all?
You shall not make for yourself a carved image --- any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I ,the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, Exodus 20.4-5. we do not know which type of a cross or a stake He died the Greek word stauros can be translated as cross or stake, so the translator who translate the bible into English translate it as cross. This is the one point I wanted you show that people who are worshipers of cross are not following Jesus Christ. I just wanted show one more point who are reading this letter that they are not following Christ and they are not true Christians but like mother Eve followed of the Satan the devil.
Before He died, Jesus said For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12.40 All most all the Christians are commemorates Christ death on a Friday and they call that day good Friday. (The Words Good Friday is not in the bible) The women who wanted to anoint Jesus body came to the tomb on the first day of the week. Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
2 Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
3 And they said among themselves, "Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?"
4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away --- for it was very large. Mark 16.1-4 Now show me three days and three nights so called good Friday evening to first day of the week morning which is Sunday. The people who commemorates Jesus death on a Friday making my savior liar because from Friday evening to Saturday mid night there are no three days and three nights. Then Jesus death was on a Wednesday and Jesus has to resurrect on a Saturday evening by completing His words three days and three nights but not on an Easter Sunday. Jesus said: And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'
8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men --- the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do."
9 He said to them, "All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. Mark 7.7-9 Again he said in the same chapter; making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do. “Mark 7.13
Jesus said to satan ; But Jesus answered him, saying, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.' " If you wanted to live for ever in the kingdom God eat the word of God.
