The fact that you call an orange an apple doesn鈥檛 make the orange an apple. In Isaiah 4:1, the seven women say they will eat their own food and wear their own apparel, yet they want to take a man鈥檚 name. It reminds me of how truth has been compared to food鈥攐r bread鈥攊n John 6:35 and apparel is a symbol of righteousness in Revelation 19:8. How many churches call themselves by the name Christian but don鈥檛 uphold the bread of truth and teach us to wear Christ鈥檚 robe of righteousness?

God鈥檚 church is defined by the apostle Paul as the pillar of truth. He wrote Timothy on how people 鈥渙ught to conduct鈥 themselves 鈥渋n the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth鈥 (1 Timothy 3:15). If a denomination is not teaching truth, it is not truly God鈥檚 church.

Daniel predicted that a time would come when a religious power would 鈥渃ast truth down to the ground鈥 (Daniel 8:12). Paul warns, 鈥淟et no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed鈥 (2 Thessalonians 2:3).

We should expect there to be false churches that do not teach truth from Scripture but teach 鈥渁s doctrines the commandments of men鈥 (Matthew 15:9). Otherwise, why would Paul encourage us to 鈥渢est all things; hold fast what is good鈥? (1 Thessalonians 5:21).

The book of Revelation speaks of God鈥檚 end-time church and gives us indicators for knowing if a denomination is truly following the Lord. Of this remnant people, the apostle John writes, 鈥淭he dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus鈥 (Revelation 12:17). God鈥檚 true church stands on biblical truth.
