No Right to Change God’s Rule

Proving the Church of Christ

Most troubles in any religious organization originate when mankind usurps the authority of Christ Jesus, substituting their own ideals. God’s wisdom remains unsurpassed and of unmatched authority (Revelation 19:6); therefore, it is not in man that walks to direct his own steps (Jeremiah 10:23). God’s instructions regarding life and godliness began with Adam and Eve (Genesis 1-3). When God commanded they must not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:17), He permitted no negotiation in this matter. His commandment was RULE or government. When man changed this rule, man sinned: they rebelled against God’s unchangeable rule! The same is true today in religious matters. Whenever man changes God’s established government (rule) and substitutes his own thinking, man’s thinking will fail! Since the church of Christ is His church, its members have no right to change the government!
