Matthew 16:18, "...and on this rock I will build my church..." This is one of the most controversial and debated passages in all of the Scripture. We are not going to become divided as to meaning or interpretation; we are going to be united by the power and freedom of its origin. The only way the Church could have lasted for centuries and withstood the "gates of hell" is to have had an infallible foundation. That foundation is TRUTH. The Truth is, none of us is greater than the other or there would be a hierarchy (a pyramid if you will) established so we would know our place in this pyramid, and how many "greater Saints" lie between us and GOD. The Bible tells us that GOD has no favorites and that each of us has a personal relationship with HIM. By our confessions (as well as Peter) HE has made us all honored instruments of making known the Gospel and establishing each of us a distinguished deliverer of the WORD in JESUS' Church. Relying upon JESUS (THE TRUTH) is the immovable "Rock" of our FAITH; The Rock is our strength and stability. We are not some "pebble" in a pyramid far removed from GOD; We are a part of the "ROCK" of TRUTH which dwells within.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
