The Church of Christ

Matthew 16  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 12
I would re-state what I have said once before in the " Present Testimony," and used in testimony, that the difference between the Church of Christ in Matt. 16 and the Church of God elsewhere is correlative. The Church of God would have Christ for its rock: God founds it on Christ. Christ does not found His Church on Himself, or the confession of Himself, but on the Father's action-as by the revelation made to Peter. Those constitute Christ's Church who are given Him of the Father- out of the kingdom of the Son shall be taken all those that offend and work iniquity, and the rest shine forth in the kingdom of His Father.
