Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
1 Corinthians 3:1–2
But I, brothers, could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, for you are still of the flesh.
Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Do you really follow Christ?
Is following Christ just some floaty concept we hold in our mind?
As a Christian it is all to easy to get caught up in the idea of following Christ, but do we really care what that looks like? We often stumble on the stone, clinging to our traditions and the doctrines of men wile dreaming up circular theologies to excuse us from the clear instruction found in Gods Word. We take dreams recorded in Gods Word and call them literal then excuse ourselves from clear and concise statements of the red letter variety as metaphorical. In truth we are just comfortable with our ways of worship, our salvation, our traditions and our routines. We remain blind out of selfishness and pride, we become angry, bitter and defensive when our normalcy bias is challenged. Lets face it, were willfully ignorant, comfortable in our believes and don’t like to be be wrong. We don’t want to find new truth in God’s Word because we don’t want to be compelled to make change in our lives. If you love God then become uncomfortable, search out his truth and challenge all of your believes against his Word. First a word of caution, do not take this lightly, when you find truth, God will expect you live out that truth in your life and for some it might be better for them to remain blind. It is our mission to see the Body of Christ preform a self audit. Call it a new or a re-reformation if you like, whatever you call it it is long overdue. God calls and reveals according to his own will, if you are not called to completely sacrifice yourself and follow Christ in all things, than this ministry is not for you.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
The Kingdom of God is vast.
If your satisfied living on the outskirts of town
In the furthest providence from the capital
Than who our we to judge
So you have been saved through faith in Christ
Go and claim your reward
But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you. Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you.

Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.

1 Corinthians 9:24–25
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
