9-23-2015 The Head of The Church

The Holy Spirit-inspired Apostle Paul wrote of Jesus Christ: “And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence” (Colossians 1:18 NKJV). There is only one spiritual head of the spiritual body of Jesus Christ: Jesus Himself. All others who claim to be are wrong! No Apostle, not even Peter, took Jesus’ place as the head of the church of Christ. Peter even called Jesus “the Chief Shepherd” (1 Peter 5:4 NKJV), and Paul condemned as divisive anyone who claimed “I am of Cephas(1 Corinthians 1:12 NKJV). Any church with a different “head” is not the church of Christ over which Jesus Christ is the head! Millions of misguided members and a media blitz does not make truth out of a lie!
