If you think that your church is true, I also used to, but when I wanted to put the Bible in practice and to fulfill it in church, the dearest and friendliest people, the intimate brothers, turned into the worst enemies, and I saw that I was like a lamb in the middle of wolves (and saw that the enemies weren’t in the world but inside my home, the church).
Do you think that is worth to take care of your body, with exercise and sports? And enjoy life? You are losing! 1º Tim. 4:
8- For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness (saints) is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
Jesus tells us in Matt. 16-26:
26- For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
If you think that is only to believe, accept and acquire biblical knowledge, and keep it for you, with the wrong church and your brother to perish and you remain quiet and
not confess so you won’t be persecuted.
Do you think you are going to be saved this way? You are very wrong! John 12:
42- Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess [him], lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
43- For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Because after we have knowledge, one of two: or we are watchmen, or we deny and stand the consequences. Jesus alerts us in the Parable of the Unwary Deer that when He comes back Luke. 12:
36- (...) that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
37- Blessed [are] those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
