Key Scriptures: Galatians 1:6-9, 2:16 &20, 3:1-3, 4:9, 2 Timothy 2:11, Colossians 3:3, Romans 1:16-17, Mark 7:6-8 & 2 Samuel 24:24.
The Apostle Paul expressly warns us about the fact there are other gospels being preached that will entice us away from the one true gospel and gives the sombre warning that anyone who propagates such a gospel will be accursed of God.
Most of the ‘other gospels’ appeal to our flesh and while they might even ‘seem & feel’ right, they are are not the true gospel that leads us to salvation. Jesus Christ, God the Son came in the flesh to die for the sins of the whole world and made Himself of no reputation and took upon Himself the form of a slave. A slave has no rights of his own and while it is relatively easy for us to give up our wrongs, it is oh so much harder to give up our rights! The question that every professed believer in Jesus Christ must ask himself/herself is not “Have i been challenged but am i changed”? The Lord would exhort you to examine your own heart in this matter and to ensure that you are indeed following the true gospel because eternity awaits us all.
