“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel– not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-8, ESV)
We have heard about the great story of Gods love for the world which was demonstrated through the death, burial and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ.
However the sad truth is that we live in a world where there are many other Gospels to choose from, each of them deceptive and dangerous… these include the false gospels from world religions, philosophies, cults and even the church… at the turn of the century in the downgrade controversy Charles Spurgeon mentioned the type of twisting of the Gospel he saw in his day
The idea of a progressive gospel seems to have fascinated many. To us that notion is a sort of cross-breed between nonsense and blasphemy. After the gospel has been found effectual in the eternal salvation of untold multitudes, it seems rather late in the day to alter it; and, since it is the revelation of the all-wise and unchanging God, it appears somewhat audacious to attempt its improvement. When we call up before our mind’s eye the gentlemen who have set themselves this presumptuous task, we feel half inclined to laugh; the case is so much like the proposal of moles to improve the light of the sun…. Do men really believe that there is a gospel for each century? Or a religion for each fifty years?
We are charged in scripture to defend the faith and expose the schemes of the enemy.Jude Verse 3 states
“Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 3, ESV)
and Paul reminds us in Ephesians to..
“Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11, ESV)
there are so many false Gospels in the world today that it would be impossible to look at all of them so we have summarized them into four categorizes
- Good People
(Moralist + False Religion)
(Twisted Christianity or Cults)
(Naturalism + Atheism)
(Greedy, Rebellious, Gnostic, Hedonistic)
