Faith illustration makes a clear distinction between the many denominational faiths and the one covenant faith of Jesus Christ. When God says that there is only one way to Jesus He is excluding all other man made ways and doctrines. The unity of the faith cannot be found in the diversity of doctrine. Diversity of doctrine is division, not unity. God unites us in one mind and one heart with Him by giving us His one truth. The covenant of Jesus Christ is the way. This chart further illustrates that God’s way for the soul to enter into rest (palm trees) is through stewardship and priesthood. Teaching by S8W® Apostles Today Network establish the church in the one faith of Jesus Christ.
Chart challenges the way in which Christianity is viewed. Most view the Christian faith through many manmade traditions and philosophies. That is why there are over 33,000 Christian denominations in the world today. There is only one way to Jesus, and that is covenant faith.
“Because strait (one way) is the gate, and narrow is the way (restriction of that pattern), which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:14)
Strait: Narrow: One way. What is narrow about coming into covenant with God? God is specific in the way He wants faith to be demonstrated. If it is not demonstrated His way, we cannot enter through the door. Once we have entered through the door, God sets restriction (narrow) upon us by that same pattern, so that we can be reconciled to Him.
God teaches us the terms of the covenant by this law: Grace & Truth (pattern) which reflects Jesus Christ. Apostles Today Network of the Second 8th Week® teach the one tradition of faith that truly sets the sinner free.
