Christian Change America
If what most people see as Christianity is true, why would anyone want to be saved. We need the right Bible rightly divided presented with the right heart.
There a lot of fakes calling themselves Christianity, but there is only one Biblical Christianity. It requires you rightly divide the word of truth. You need to find it out and be fully persuaded in your own mind (Rom 14:5).
Every reason not to be saved is a lie. Let God be true and every man a liar (Rom 3:4).

What Is The Condition Of Church
2 Chron 7:14
The land belonged to Israel (2 Chron 6:25). The church the Body of Christ does not have one square inch of land promised to them by God. This is why we are called ambassadors and given a heavenly position (2 Cor 5:20, Phil 3:20).

We Need A Church
The Bible speaks about one of three separate groups of saints. three different churches, three different messages. Rightly dividing these churches solves much doctrinal confusion.
The Wilderness Church referenced by Stephen Acts 7:38. Is Israel following Moses to the Promised Land.
The Church in the Temple referred to Acts 2:44-47. was added to at Pentecost formed by Christ from the remnant of believing Israel.
The Church, the BoC referred to by Paul Col 1:24. Began with Jesus saving Paul by out of due time (1 Cor 15:8). The message of this group is a mystery and kept secret before. It includes Jews and Gentiles together not under a law system.
Not every instruction in the Bible was written to you or about you.

Can Religion Save Me
It is impossible for the religious person to avoid his own sin, and as such become a victim of his own righteous condemnation of sin.
Religion is only good for making manifest sinners (Rom 3:20). When you meet a religious man, put him to his own religious test until he admits he also sins and needs Christ to save him by his grace. This is what the law taught.
A mans religion is sufficient to condemn him. Gods grace is sufficient to save him.

Can Criminals Change With God
Since Jesus was nailed to a cross purchasing us with his perfect blood God can forgive us all for Christs sake. All we need do is believe it, as Paul teaches in his gospel, 1 Thess 4 and 1 Cor 15
Many think Christ didn't do enough and we still need to beg for forgiveness.
Still captive to sin and guilt, religious people, go through water baptisms, continually confess their sins, say ritualistic prayers, and perform good deeds in attempt to earn forgiveness. Despite the fact that the Bible is clear that Christ already died for sins.
There is no reason to do these things if you have already trusted in Christs payment for sin. Trying to earn your own forgiveness makes the cross of Christ of none effect!

How To Give A Tithe
Paul tells us we are no longer under the law and t we are free from its bondage (Gal 4:9). Even more, Jesus Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law:
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: Gal 4:13
Placing someone under a required system of tithing and offering is equal to ignoring the redemption of Christ and placing the church back under a curse of the law.
Those living under liberty and grace can't be placed under a curse (Gal 5:1). Mandatory tithing is not a practice for the church, the boC. Those who teach tithing are either ignorant of Pauls instructions or are mishandling the word of truth (Titus 1:11).

We Need A Church
it's not enough to be Scriptural and to use the Bible. Satan, uses doctrine, battling for mens souls. When he tempted the Lord, Satan used Scripture for his temptation (Matt 4:3-11).
The Bible says Satans ministers are transformed into ministers of righteousness dealing out doctrines of devils (2 Cor 11:13-15, 1 Tim 4:1).

Can Criminals Change With God
//A lot times people do not believe they can change.//
People who believe "criminals" can't change don't believe scripture so they "change" either. In reality God changes us.
Paul says "while we were yet sinners Christ died for us"
Salvation was a mystery, and it will remain a mystery until people acknowledge the message revealed to the apostle Paul, the chief of sinners saved by grace.

Christ In You
If Acts 2:38 is the gospel that saves today, there is no reason to preach the finished work of the cross for salvation.
When Peter condemned Israel for killing Jesus. He didn't preach the cross, instead said repent and be baptized for the remission of sins.
John, preached "baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Mark 1:4
Shortly after Pentecost, and before God was to pour out his wrath, he saved Paul and made him the dispenser of an new message of Grace.
Paul describes a new creature, the church, the boC (2 Cor 5:17, 1 Cor 12:13). It's this church in which Paul says that he was FIRST( 1 Tim 1:16)
Making our pattern Paul not those believers looking for the end under the New Covenant at Pentecost,

Christ In You
Acts 4:33 Says they witnessed His resurrection, not that they preached it.
Peter didn't preach the cross as a means of salvation, but as a murder indictment against the men of Judea and Israel.(Acts 1:22,23)
Rom 5:8 Paul says 'while we were yet sinners Christ died for us'(not the same)
Jesus taught Paul the meaning of the death, burial, and resurrection for the Gentiles, and for the first time we could understand the meaning behind why the death and resurrection was necessary for all men

Christ In You
Pauls gospel message was entirely of Christ, and so Paul stands alone in calling it the gospel of Christ and Christs gospel, but that he also calls it my gospel can only be explained by the fact that Christ gave it first to Paul exclusively.

No one else in scripture could claim my gospel, nor can we. We learned the gospel from Pauls writings, and the twelve apostles taught the same gospel as John the Baptist and of which the prophets spoke (Mark 1:4, Mark 1:15, Acts 3:19-21).
Paul repeatedly says that the dispensation of the grace of God was given to him (Eph 3:2, Eph 3:7, Col 1:25, Rom 15:15).

Can Religion Save Me
//Of course, they also taught about how to get there.//
How do you get there?

Christ In You
Mixing law and grace is dangerous, as you are doing.
Paul says 'a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.' Me is singular.
Paul told Timothy 'Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.' Chief is head or first.
The dispensation of grace began with Paul. He explains that a dispensation begins with a revelation dispensed from God.(Ephes 3:2-3)
This grace was first given to Paul at his conversion.
(1 Tim 1:12-14)
The beginning of the dispensation of the grace of God was when Paul first received salvation from God freely apart from Israel and the law.
The Lord made Paul a pattern for those who would follow after in the gospel of the grace of God, and in the fellowship of the mystery.

Christ In You
Rom 15:4 "learning" is not necessarily doctrine
Studying the Bible dispensationally isn't an invented theology.
People argue over what is a dispensation, but no one can dispute that the word is in the Bible and must be interpreted.
Paul was given a dispensation (Eph 3:2).
Some revelations dispense new information about how he deals with us, and how we are respond in faith.
Eph 2, Gal 3, and Rom 5 explain changes that occur as a result of Gods revelations and dispensations.

Living Christian Lifestyle
Many are still under endure to the end, live it to keep it, works and faith, commandment keeping religious system.
When your faith is in the gospel of the grace of God you understand that the gift of righteousness and eternal life is given freely by grace without additional works. Christ did it all. You have liberty in him.
So, does Paul teach the gospel of the grace of God is against the Law? Does it give a license to sin? Does freedom and liberty mean that sin will abound? God forbid. The truth about grace is different.
The answer is in right division.

Christ In You
Paul writes that a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me (1 Cor 9:17) and that he is commissioned to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery (Eph 3:9).
These mysteries concern the Lord Jesus Christ and his operation in the world today: the gospel of Christ, Christ in you, and the new creature called the Body of Christ.
Many do not know the mystery nor Pauls gospel. They think their commission, gospel, and instructions come from the red letters of the Bible, or in the letters of the twelve apostles (Heb-Rev).
If you are a member of the boC,Paul is your pattern you are in Christ and Christ is in you.

Christ In You
Being in Christ was always Gods plan for heaven and earth. Israel needing to be in the Lord was nothing new. Christ taught they needed to be in Him (John 17:21). Those in Christ according to prophecy were part of Israels kingdom covenants (John 15:5).
Those in Christ according to the mystery dispensation of Christ are part of a new creature, without Jew or Gentile (2 Cor 5:17, Col 3:10-11). Out of two, Jew and Gentile, God made one new man in Christ in this dispensation (Eph 2:15-16).
The dispensational difference is how we come to be in Christ.
The mystery of Christ explains how ungodly Gentiles could be in Christ without the law and the covenants. This mystery was unknown by the prophets in time past until revealed to Paul.
