God has always had everything organized to the most minute detail, including His Will and how we follow it. Some people seem to bend the wording in a certain verse, just a little. Then maybe a little more in another verse, a little less in another. We must take His Word as it is, accept it, and abide by the distinct rules He has laid out for us. He put so much detail in creating this Earth, each one of us, and His word. Why then would He not have a specific way for us to do His Will and get to Heaven? Jesus instructed, by His teachings, specific ways to act and specific actions to take. He was our perfect example. He founded the church, not churches. This singular word indicates a specific church and a specific plan of salvation. It would be dangerous to worship any other way that Jesus Himself did not instruct. The Church of Christ follows His teachings and goes straight from the Bible's instructions. Sometimes people with good intentions do not always focus on the big picture, or they don't consider what they are doing, where they are going, or what the Bible says. We must understand that worship the wrong way could have eternal consequences. Don't you want to be absolutely sure you are living the way God intended, and worshiping in an acceptable way to Him?
