TheBibleSaysThat.com was created by members of the Living Church of God, a worldwide fellowship of Christians who strive to live the way Jesus Christ taught us to live. Church members believe that when Christians receive the Holy Spirit after repentance and baptism, God gives them His strength to grow in grace, knowledge, and living His way.
The Church’s website, LCG.org, offers a comprehensive library of sermons and Bible study resources. Sermons urge Church members to “Believe and Obey the Truth,” and to “Seek and Walk with God.” They help viewers in “Connecting the Dots” between trends and concerns of our day. For some, “Are You Ready for Baptism?” is a topic of most vital concern. Would you like to learn “Ten Characteristics of God’s True Church?” If so, the LCG.org sermon library may be a vital resource for you.
The LCG.org site also provides a Bible Study series, with topics ranging from a one-lesson review of “Achieving Godly Success” to a 32-part audio study of the Gospel of Matthew.
The Living Church of God also provides formal coursework for interested students through Living Education. Courses are offered at no charge to help faithful Christians go deeper in their knowledge and practice of God’s Way.
Unlike many professing Christian churches, the Living Church of God is committed to following the “whole counsel” of God (Acts 20:27). Where many mistakenly believe that the Old Testament was “nailed to the cross” by the New Testament, Living Church of God members understand that Jesus Christ came not to do away with His Father’s commandments, but rather to “magnify” (Isaiah 42:21; KJV) or “fulfill” them (Matthew 5:17) as practiced by Christians today. There is no longer a Temple as was present during Jesus’ time on the earth; rather, Christians are now the “temple of God” (1 Corinthians 3:16) and with the help of the Holy Spirit strive to come ever closer to emulating Christ in word and deed.
As a visitor to TheBibleSaysThat.com, you have seen that many churches call themselves Christian but neglect Christ’s own example and commandments. Only a small handful of professing Christians follow their Savior in observing the seventh-day Sabbath, and fewer observe the “annual Sabbaths”—the Holy Days that Jesus Christ, the God of the Old Testament, gave to His people in Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16. The Living Church of God teaches that these Sabbaths are not an obsolete Jewish practice, but rather are a blessing God intended for all of “spiritual Israel”—called, chosen, and faithful Christians—today! Church members also follow God’s laws regarding clean and unclean meats.
Living Church of God members understand themselves to be “strangers and pilgrims” in today’s world. Called to prepare for their destiny as “firstfruits” in the Kingdom of God, they understand that their citizenship is in that coming Kingdom, and as a result do not participate in partisan politics or serve on juries. They understand that Jesus Christ came to make disciples of all nations, and emphatically reject hatred and racism as unChristian.
