What does the Bible say about to Morrow?

What makes a person decide to go to church?
As with most things in life, an individual shopping for a church bases his decision on the church’s appeal and desirability. He also bases it on whether he agrees with the church’s beliefs, purposes and goals. He considers whether he identifies with the church, and seeks out parishioners of like mind. Location is also a major factor.
What does the Bible say about one true church?
“Well,” He thinks, “This church understands there is only one true church” ( Matt. 16:18 ), “and it is not divided into many groups or organizations” ( I Cor. 1:13 ). Upon further investigation of the church’s government structure, He finds there are the ranks of pope, cardinal and bishop. “This is incorrect,” He thinks.
What do you say if it is the Lord’s will?
Your remarks should be prefaced with, “If it is the Lord’s will, we shall be alive and will do so-and-so.” As it is, you get a certain pride in yourself in planning your future with such confidence. That sort of pride is all wrong. No doubt you agree with the above in theory.
