I believe that God will judge the world someday by the Bible. Now if they are…He is going to judge the world. And if there isn’t a standard to judge by, how will the people know what to do? See? It would be God…You could not pin unjustice to—to God. And God has got to have something for His standard, that He judges the people by. Therefore if He judges it by the Roman Catholic church, then the Greek church, the Orthodox Catholic, and many of those, are certainly lost, and all the rest of the world. If He judges it by the Greek Orthodox Catholic church, and not by the Roman church, then the other…Then the Roman church and all the rest is lost. If He judges it by the Lutheran church, then the Presbyterians is gone. If He judged it by the Presbyterians, the Lutherans and Baptists is gone. See? So if He judges it by the Pentecostals, then all besides Pentecostals is gone.
But He’ll not judge it by any church, to my opinion, because there is too much differences and too much confusion. But He’ll judge it, the Bible says, “He’ll judge the world by Jesus Christ.” Now, that’s Scriptural. Now…And the Bible said, that, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” “The same yesterday, today, and forever.” So, He is the Word, and This is Christ in letter form. And in the Book of Apocalypse to the Catholic, Revelation to the Protestant, in the 22nd chapter when this Book was finished, Jesus said, Himself, “If any man will take one Word from this Book, or add one word to It; the same, his part, will be taken from the Book of Life.” So I…The reason we believe this, and stay just exactly. Nothing…He can do things that He hasn’t written here, we know that. But as long as we just stay with what He has wrote, that’ll be fine.
