“For the perfecting of the saints,

for the work of the ministry, 

 for the edifying of the body of Christ”

(Ephesians 4:12).

Fanciful misinterpretations

and misapplications

of figurative language in the Bible

are among the means

used by Satan and Satan’s ministers 

to discredit the Word of God

among the ignorant.

With reference to

The New Testament Churches

THAT JESUS ORGANIZED

and FOUNDED

 Satan has ‘accomplished’ one of his

most cunning deceptions

in the popular though ridiculous myth

that 

the figurative usage

of the original

and translated languages

in the expression,

“body of Christ,” 

as Christ’s churches

are scripturally called,

“is not really a body at all”,

but that the

“body of Christ,” 

is identical with the family

or the Kingdom of God.

However,

we do not see that the

“body of Christ,” 

AS DEFINED and USED 

in

The Bible,

is EVER

identical AT ALL

with the family,

or the Kingdom of God.

Scripture passages

in which the church is referred to

and described

under the figure of a human body

as the

“body of Christ”

include:

Romans 12:4,5;

“4 Because as we have

many members

in one body,

and all members

have not the same office;

“5 So we, being many, are

one body in Christ,

and every one

members one of another.”

I Corinthians 10:16,17;

 “16 The cup of blessing which we bless,

is it not the communion

of the blood of Christ?

The bread which we break,

is it not the communion of

the body of Christ?

“17 Because we being many

are one bread,

and one body;

for we are all partakers

of that one bread.

I Corinthians 12:12-28; 

12 Because as

the (human) body is one, 

and has many members,

and all the members

of that one

(human) body,

being many,

are one

(human) body;

so also is Christ.

“13 Because by one Spirit

are we all baptized

into one body,

whether we be Jews

or Greeks {Gentiles},

whether we be bond or free;

and have been all Made

to Drink into one Spirit.

“14 Because the

(human) body

is not one member, but many.

“15 If the foot will say,

Because I am not the hand,

I am not of the

(human) body;

is it,

therefore, not of the

(human) body?

“16 And if the ear will say

Because I am not the eye,

I am not of the (human) body;

is it,

therefore, not of the (human) body?

“17 If the whole (human) body

were an eye,

where were the hearing?

If the whole were hearing,

where were the smelling?

“18 But now has God

Set the members,

every one of them,

in the (human) body,

as it Has Pleased Him.

“19 And if they were all one member,

where were the (human) body?

20 But now are they many members,

yet but one (human) body.

“21  And the eye cannot say to the hand,

I have no need of you;

nor again the head to the feet,

I have no need of you.

 “22 No, much more

those members of the (human) body,

which seem to be more feeble,

are necessary;

“23 And those

members of the (human) body,

which we think to be less honorable,

upon these we bestow

more abundant honor;

and our uncomely parts

have more abundant comeliness.

“24 For our comely parts

have no need;

but God has

Tempered the (human) body together,

having Given more abundant honor

to that part which lacked,

“25 That there should be

no schism in the (human) body;

but that the members

should have the same care

one for another.

“26 And whether one member suffer,

all the members suffer with it;

or one member be honored,

all the members rejoice with it.

“27  Now you are

the body of Christ

and members in particular.

“28 And God

has set some in the church:

first apostles,

second prophets,

third teachers;

after that miracles,

then gifts of healings,

helps,

governments,

diversities of tongues.”

Ephesians 1:23; 

17  That the God

of our Lord Jesus Christ,

the Father of Glory,

May Give to you

the Spirit of Wisdom

and Revelation

in the Knowledge of Him,

“18  The eyes of your Understanding

being Enlightened;

that you may Know

what is the Hope of His Calling,

and what the Riches of the Glory

of His Inheritance in the saints,

“19 And what is the Exceeding Greatness

of His Power toward us who Believe,

According to the

Working of His Mighty Power,

“20 Which He Wrought in Christ,

when He Raised Him from the Dead

and

Set Him at His Own Right Hand

in the Heavenly Places,

“21 Far Above all principality,

and power, and might, and dominion,

and every name that is named,

not only in this age {world},

but also in that which is to come;

“22  And Has Put all things

Under His Feet,

and Gave Him

to be the Head over all things

to the church,

“23 Which is His body,

the fullness of Him

that filleth all in all.”

Ephesians 4:4, 12-16;

“4 There is one body,

and one Spirit,

even as ye are Called

in one Hope of your Calling…”

“…12 For the perfecting of the saints

for the work of the ministry

for the edifying of

the body of Christ;

“13 Till we all come

in the Unity of the Faith,

and of the Knowledge

of the Son of God,

unto a perfect man,

unto the measure of the stature

of the fullness of Christ;

“14  That we henceforth

be no more children, tossed to and fro,

and carried about

with every wind of doctrine,

by the sleight of men,

and cunning craftiness,

by which {whereby}

they lie in wait to deceive;

“15  But, speaking the Truth in Love,

may grow up into Him in all things,

Who is the Head, even Christ;

“16 From Whom

the whole body

fitly joined together

and compacted

by that which every joint supplieth,

According to the Effectual Working

in the Measure of every part,

Makes Increase of the body

unto the Edifying of itself in Love.”

Ephesians 5:23-30;

“23 Because the husband

is the head of the wife,

even as Christ

is the Head of the church;

and He is

the Savior of the body.

“24 Therefore,

as the church

is subject unto Christ,

so let the wives

be to their own husbands

in everything.

“25 Husbands, Love your wives,

even as Christ also

Loved the church,

and Gave Himself for it,

“26 That He Might Sanctify

and Cleanse it

with the Washing of Water

by the Word;

“27 That He Might Present it

to Himself a Glorious church,

not having spot or wrinkle,

or any such thing;

but that it should be Holy

and without blemish.

“28 So ought men 

to Love their wives 

as their own (human) bodies. 

He that loves his wife

loves himself.

“29 Because no man

ever yet hated his own flesh,

but nourisheth and cherishes it,

even as the Lord the church;

“30 Because we are

members of His body,

of His flesh, and of His bones.”

Colossians 1:18, 24;

“18 And He is

the Head of the body,

the church;

Who is the Beginning,

the Firstborn from the dead;

that in all things

He Might Have

The Preeminence….

24 …Who now rejoice

in my sufferings for you,

and fill up that which is behind

of the afflictions of Christ

in my flesh

for His body’s sake,

which is the church,”

Colossians 2:19; 

“19 And not holding the Head,

from Whom all the body

by joints and bands

having Nourishment Ministered,

and Knit together,

Increases

with the Increase of God.”

Colossians 3:15; 

“15 And let the Peace of God 

Rule in your hearts,

to the which also you are

Called in one body;

and be ye Thankful.”

A careful and intelligent study

of these scriptures in context

is enough to expose to the Bible believer

the

evident fallacy and folly

of the universal church heresy

THAT IT TOOK SATAN 1,500 YEARS

to ‘GET SOME HUMAN BEINGS

to ‘BELIEVE’,

when IT IS FAKE, FALSE,

PHONY HERESY of SATAN’S CORRUPTION

of  JESUS’ TEACHINGS

CONCERNING

THE CHURCHES JESUS BUILT

THAT GOD

WOULD HAVE US to UNDERSTAND

in THE WORD OF GOD.
