  • In Christianity, the doctrine of Apostolic Succession (or the belief that the Church is 'apostolic') maintains that the Christian Church today is the spiritual successor to the original body of believers in Christ, composed of the Apostles. Virtually all Christian denominations consider Apostolic Succession important in some fashion, although their definitions of the concept may vary.

  • I often wonder why mankind insist on putting God into a box. God is not so narrow minded that a soul would be lost because of symantics. In Mark 9 starting at verse 38 Jesus had a discussion with his deciples about seperatism 38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. 39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. 40 For he that is not against us is on our part. One thing we fail to realize is that Jeus is not coming back for a religion. He is coming back for His church. That church without a spot or a wrinkle. That church where His Gospel has been preached in fullness. You cannot have Jesus without the Father and the Holy Spirit. I believe that the Apostolic Faith that preach oneness is being very narrow minded in their interpetation of God's word and I find it dangerous when we start determining who will make it in and who will not. I also would like to say that Idon't believe that any religion is100% right in their doctrine. I say this because religion is man made where they base their doctrine on their interpretation of a scripture; or what they beieve God has revealed or spoken to them. We cannot exclude any scripture in our christian walk. We must do as 2 Timothy 2:15 says; Study so that we know what is the truth. God is not concern about your Denomination; He is concerned with wheather or not you have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. And please can anyone tell me where JESUS said that a person must speak in tongues to be saved or filled with the Holy Spirit? I always consider these to be Gifts that God gave according to His grace.
  • Reply: to marielove, Sarah is a christian,( she sounds like she loves God). Thats all that matters. Its better for her to be here sitting on the computer giving biblical advice then out drinking etc... Leave her alone let her believe what she wants. She is doing what God wants.. spreading the word. And I dont care if you think it is biblical or not. Go bash one of these people on here that talks about drugs and sex and how they wished they could kill someone. Leave Gods people alone
  • This may be a silly question, but are you asking about a specific religion called “the apostolic religion,” or are you asking which religion is Apostolic? The interpretation will have a pretty big effect on the way some people answer.
  • The Catholic Church is apostolic because she is founded on the apostles, in three ways: • She was and remains built on the foundation of the Apostles, the witnesses chosen and sent on mission by Christ himself; • With the help of the Holy Spirit dwelling in her, the Church keeps and hands on the teaching, the words she has heard from the apostles; • She continues to be taught, sanctified, and guided by the apostles until Christ's return, through their successors, the college of bishops, in union with the successor of Simon Peter, the Church's supreme pastor, the Pope. For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 857: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/text/pt1sect2chpt3art9p3.htm#857 With love in Christ.
  • 2 John 1:9 whosoever trangresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed
  • This really is an inaccurate question. The word Apostolic means "Apostle like". One who is an Apostolic does not follow a "religion", but rather the Bible in the fullest. When someone says that they are Apostolic, they should say that they follow in the Apostle's doctrine. There is a second part to the question that has not been addressed, what is a Pentecostal? This is not a religion, but an experience of the baptism of the Holy Ghost. This coupled with the Apostle's doctrine, brings someone to the ultimate experience of being called a Christian. If you remember, in Acts, they said that they were first called Christians at Antioch. Why? Because they experienced Pentecost, (the 50th day from Passover when the Holy Ghost was poured out. This was what Jesus said to the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for, the promise of the Father). Then they followed in the Apostle's doctrine, (this is what they were taught of Jesus for 3 1/2 years. How to live right, treat people right, learn the truth about God and connect the hearts of men back to the creator). I am sorry I have rambled for so long, but I will leave you with this -- "Search the scriptures, for in them ye think we have life. And they are they which testify of me." It's all in what you put your faith in. If you believe the Bible as the only God-inspired book, the passage of scripture which I just quoted will move your heart to dig deeper.
  • your right,everyone has the right to believe what they want.you know God said everyone would not find it.why would he say that.because it's not for everyone.when your not taking up, what are you going to say then.i pray that u find the truth,the bible says a way that seems right to a man leads to Death...
  • This question is for an apostolic believer.... Once you have been baptized into a church and you become a faithful member to that church....would you be in rebellion against God if you had to move to a different state and attend a different church and be under a different pastor? Or what are your thoughts about the pastor saying that no, you can't go but you leave anyway because of life changes. Would you be in rebellion against God if that were the case?
  • Its not a religion... its a lifestyle...I say if you love God with everything with in you you will search the bible inside and out...not using only one scripture but all of them...when you find it then live it to the best of your ability...if you mess up God forgives...you repent and move on...I'm an Apostolic and I believe in the bible...I love the people in my church to death but I don't believe in it because they do..I believe in it as well...with all my heart...God is amazing and thats all that matters...and if you want to know answers to all your questions about why we dress the way we do..and our beliefs..then find an Apostolic church and visit...find out for yourself...in person..not just from the internet...don't just take my word for it...go and find out for yourself...if you want to find God then take steps towards him and he'll take steps toward you...God Bless!
