Gospel Is And Is Not
Just what is the Gospel of Jesus Christ? That is the most
important of all questions because upon it hinges the eternal
destiny of our souls. If we do not OBEY that Gospel, we are
damned for all eternity:
"... the Lord Jesus shall be
revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire
taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that
obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who
shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence
of the Lord, and from the glory of his power" [2Thess 1:7-9]
Even if we know what the Gospel is, we cannot obey
the Gospel perfectly in and of ourselves and so we cannot save ourselves or even
contribute to or participate in our salvation. Wonderfully, Jesus
Christ paid the entire sin debt owned by His people so they (the people God
saves) no longer need to fear the eternal wrath of God. Those whom Christ saves, are then supposed go out into all
the world (and they will want to go) and preach the Gospel to every creature - to
whom God puts in their path as they journey through life.
Therefore believers in Christ need to know what this Gospel is so
that they can present it to others, as clearly and accurately as
Many people, who may be genuine Christians, often do not have
a proper understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They do not
fully understand what it is that saves a soul or how it is that
God performs His work of salvation in a person. Just like
Apollos, they need to be instructed in the way of God more
"And a certain Jew named
Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the
scriptures, came to Ephesus. This man was instructed in the way
of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught
diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of
John. And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when
Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto
them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly."
|"Brethren, there is nothing in
the gospel, apart from the Spirit of God, which can save a man, for man
hates the gospel with all his heart! Though the reasonableness of the
gospel of Jesus ought to make the belief of it universal, yet its plain
dealing with human sin excites deadly antagonism. Therefore, the gospel
itself would make no progress were it not for the divine power. There is
an invisible arm which pushes forward the conquests of the truth. There
is a fire unfed with human fuel, which burns a way for the truth of
Jesus Christ into the hearts of men." - C.H.
GOSPEL IS NOT
A helpful way of understanding what the Gospel is, is to point
out some common misconceptions about salvation. The true Gospel
of Jesus Christ is NONE of the following, no matter how many
people may be saying these things:
|This is NOT the Gospel:
||1. God has a wonderful plan for your
|This is NOT the Gospel:
||2. God loves the sinner but hates the
|This is NOT the Gospel:
||3. You can be saved anytime you want
just by accepting Christ.
|This is NOT the Gospel:
||4. Say some "sinner's
prayer" and if you really mean it, you are saved.
|This is NOT the Gospel:
||5. Anyone who believes in God
(according to just about any religion) will get to

||6. Anyone who is a "good"
person will get to heaven.
|This is NOT the Gospel:
||7. Anyone who believes in Jesus and
calls Jesus "Lord" is a Christian.
|This is NOT the Gospel:
||8. All it takes to become
saved is to exercise saving faith in Christ.
NONE OF THE ABOVE are "the Gospel" or even a part of it, no matter
how many churches, pastors, evangelists, preachers, or teachers say they ARE the
Let us look in more detail at these things that the Gospel
Misconception #1: God has a wonderful
plan for your life.
In truth, God might a plan for your life that you may not
like in the least - if you are not among the "elect",
those whom Christ came to save. Even true believers are told
throughout the Bible that all who live godly lives in Christ can
expect to be persecuted, while the unsaved may live lives full of
material blessings and other blessings. Ultimately, those who die
lost can expect their lives in eternity to be most miserable...
Romans 9:22 - "What if God, willing to shew his
wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much
longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:"
Romans 2:5-6 - "But after thy hardness and
impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day
of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 Who
will render to every man according to his deeds:"
Prov 29:1 - "He, that being often reproved
hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without
What is God's plan for your life? Do you know? Are you seeking
the Lord while He may be found?
Misconception #2: God loves the
sinner but hates the sin.
In truth, God hates the workers of iniquity AND their
Psalm 5:5 - "The foolish shall not stand in thy
sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity."
Psalm 11:5 - "The LORD trieth the righteous: but
the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth."
Prov 15:9 - "The way of the wicked is an
abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth
Does God love you or are you still spiritually lost and living
according to your own standards or your church's standards
instead of according to the Bible?
Misconception #3: You can be saved
anytime you want just by accepting Christ.
In truth, salvation is of the Lord (Jonah 2:9), not of man.
God alone determines who He will save and when He will save them.
God is the giver of all life, both physical life and spiritual
life. No One is born into His kingdom unless He orchestrates
everything necessary for that birth to occur...
1Cor 15:8 - "And last of all he was seen of me
also, as of one born out of due time."
John 1:13 - "Which were born, not of blood,
nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of
Eph 1:4-5 - "According as he hath chosen us
in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy
and without blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us
unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according
to the good pleasure of his will,"
We don't accept Christ and His rule in our lives until He
first accepts us and converts our rebellious hearts:
Ephesians 1:5 - "Having predestinated us unto the
adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the
good pleasure of his will, 6 To the praise of the glory of his
grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the
Has Christ accepted you yet? How do you know?
Misconception #4: Say some
"sinner's prayer" and if you really mean it, you are
In truth, God will have mercy on whom He will have mercy.
God doe not owe anyone salvation. Nor does a person's prayer
cause God to do something, otherwise that person would be more
sovereign than God...
Romans 9:15,18 - "For he saith to Moses, I will
have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion
on whom I will have compassion. 18 Therefore hath he mercy on
whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth."
Daniel 4:35 - "And all the inhabitants of the
earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to
his will in the army of heaven, and among the
inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto
him, What doest thou?"
Your motives for saying some prayer may be entirely selfish.
You may have no desire whatsoever to repent and come under the
Lordship of Christ - you may only be trying to avoid judgment
without having to turn from your sins. In fact, since the human
heart is so corrupt and so easily deceived, you may not even know
what you are really saying or doing, for as the Bible says:
Jeremiah 17:9 - "The heart is deceitful above all
things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
Proverbs 28:9 - "He that turneth away his ear from
hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination."
When you pray, do you know if God hears you? Your prayers are
an abomination to God if you are still living in rebellion to Him.
Misconception #5: Anyone who believes
in God (according to just about any religion) will
get to heaven.
In truth, you must believe in Jesus, the Jesus of the
Bible, and Him alone. Believing in a man made Jesus such as the
Jesus of Catholicism, Mormonism, or Jehovah's Witnesses will save
Acts 4:12 - "Neither is there salvation in any
other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved."
John 14:6 - "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,
the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by
John 14:9 - "Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so
long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he
that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then,
Shew us the Father?"
Acts 17:2-3 - "And Paul, as his manner was, went
in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of
the scriptures, 3 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs
have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this
Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ."
Acts 2:36 - "Therefore let all the house of Israel
know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have
crucified, both Lord and Christ."
Col 1:13 - "Who hath delivered us from the power
of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear
Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the
forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things
created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and
for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things
consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is
the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he
might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in
him should all fulness dwell;"
Gal 1:8 - "But though we, or an angel from heaven,
preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached
unto you, let him be accursed."
John 4:24 - "God is a Spirit: and they that
worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
When, and only when God converts a sinner, do they have a
proper relationship to God and do they accurately understand who
Christ is, especially as their Lord, as eternal God, who became
their sin-bearer, their substitute and all-sufficient Saviour
from the eternal wrath of an infinitely holy God. So, only a
converted sinner whom God has put His Spirit in, is capable of
believing in God properly - in spirit and in truth.
Which God do you believe in? The God of the Bible or a god
invented by you or your church.
Misconception #6: Anyone who is a
"good" person will get to heaven.
In truth, no one is good in God's eyes...
Romans 3:10&23 - "As it is written, There is
none righteous, no, not one: ... 23 For all have sinned, and come
short of the glory of God;"
Isaiah 64:6 - "But we are all as an unclean thing,
and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do
fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us
Isaiah 59:1-2 - Behold, the LORD'S hand is not
shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it
cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and
your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will
God's standards of righteousness and holiness are far higher
than man's standards. According to God's standard, committing
just ONE sin qualifies a person for hell for all eternity:
James 2:10 - "For whosoever shall keep the whole
law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."
God expects perfection, something we are all incapable of:
Matt 5:48 - "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your
Father which is in heaven is perfect."
This puts us in a hopeless situation, unless Christ grants us
a complete pardon for all our sins but that pardon cannot be
granted without someone paying for our sins. That someone is
Christ who paid the complete penalty for all the sins of all of
Matt 1:21 - "And she shall bring forth a son, and
thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from
Are you one of His people? How do you know?
Misconception #7: Anyone who believes
in Jesus and calls Jesus "Lord" is a Christian.
In truth, if God does not convert the person's heart, they
are none of His. They must have been born spiritually by the
Spirit of God, so that they know the One whom they believe in and
so that they will be able, willing and anxious to serve Him as
their Lord. They must serve Christ according to what the Bible
says, not necesssarily according to what their church may teach...
Matt 7:21-23 - "Not every one that saith unto me,
Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that
doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say
to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy
name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done
many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I
never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
James 2:19 - "Thou believest that there is one
God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble."
Misconception #8: All it takes to become
saved is exercising saving faith in
Now this is where some folks who say they believe in the sovereignty of God
are going to start hemming and hawing. They can't get it out of their minds that
even the exercising of one's faith in Christ is an act of the will and the will
of the unsaved is in bondage to sin, blind to the holiness of God and
spiritually dead and incapable of having the right kind of
Romans 8:7-8 - "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God."
True saving faith that is focused on or directed towards the true and living
God of scripture is GRANTED by God to the sinner when God saves him or
her. It is a gift, like repentance, true repentance, which God also GRANTS
to the sinner when He converts the heart of the spiritually dead sinner.
Acts 11:18 - "When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles
granted repentance unto life."
Once God puts a new heart and a new spirit in an ungodly sinner, that sinner
will receive the gift of faith to know the true God and to worship Him in Spirit
and in truth. The object of that saved sinner's faith will be the
true Savior, the One who saves sinners who are yet dead in trespasses and sin,
who saves them while they are still in rebellion against the One who bought them
by His precious blood.
Romans 5:6-8 - "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Do you believe in the Jesus who saves people without the help
of anyone else?
Even without the slightest bit of help or cooperation from the sinner?
SO HOW DOES GOD SAVE SOMEONE?
God saves people through the convicting power of the Holy
Spirit and through preaching the Gospel (John 16:7-8, Rom 10:17).
So we need to explain what the Gospel is or in other words, what
the central message of the Bible is.
WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?
The Gospel or Good News of Jesus Christ is God's plan of
salvation. However, God's plan of salvation can be summarized as
- ALL ARE SPIRITUALLY LOST - all have sinned and are unfit for heaven, until
and unless God saves them. (Rom.
- GOD IS HOLY and NO SIN can be in His presence. So even one sin qualifies
me for eternal separation from God (James 2:10)
- ETERNAL PUNISHMENT in hell is the penalty for sin. (Luke 12:4-5, Rev.
14:11, Rev. 20:15)
- NO WORKS, no human effort of any kind can provide salvation, nor can
anyone participate in their salvation (Eph. 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, Isa. 59:1-12,
- ONLY A DIVINE SUBSTITUTE who pays the complete penalty for ALL my sins can
eliminate the need for me to go to hell (Isa. 43:11, Isa. 63:5)
- JESUS CHRIST - and ONLY Christ - is that Divine substitute - the
"Lamb of God". (Isa. 43:11, Luke 2:11, Acts 4:12, Isa. 53, John
1:29, Titus 2:13, 3:6)
HOWEVER, A PERSON DOESN'T GET SAVED BY KNOWING OR BELIEVING ALL THE ABOVE.
The gospel has to take effect and that requires an act of God... God is the
AUTHOR and FINISHER of a person's salvation.
SO HOW DOES THE GOSPEL TAKE EFFECT?
The Gospel takes effect as the Word of God is proclaimed to
lost sinners and as the Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to
convict sinners of their sinful condition and to show them the holiness of God.
Romans 10:17 - "So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God."
Romans 3:20 - "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for
by the law is the knowledge of sin."
John 16:7 - "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It
is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the
Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send
him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world
of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment"
God has designed a salvation program that requires that sinners be taught -
through the proclamation of scripture - these things:
- God has laws.
- What those laws are.
- All have broken those laws.
- The just punishment, according to God, for breaking those laws is eternity
- You are at God's mercy. He does not owe you salvation.
- Salvation (escaping the judgment of eternal hell) is possible but only if
God grants you as an individual a pardon based upon the completed work of
Christ (his blood atonement) on the cross of Calvary.
- Your only hope is to seek God while He there is time (by reading the
We must not be afraid to tell sinners to repent and tell them why they need
to repent!!! God has chosen to use believers to get the Word of God out, to
sow it in men's hearts:
Mark 4:15 - "And these are they by the way side,
where the word is sown; but when they have heard, satan cometh
immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in
Once we have preached the Gospel to someone it is up to God to
do what He wills with our seed sowing. Nevertheless, we are
obligated to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers
to water the seed that we sow and to pray to God to have mercy on
the souls of men just as Moses interceded for Israel. When it is
God's time to save someone, He will give them new life from
above. He will put His Spirit in them.
WHAT ARE THE MARKS OF A
TRULY SAVED PERSON?
How do I know if I am one of God's elect, one for whom Christ died? If and
when God converts me, I will come to understand the following spiritual truths:
- I will recognize who the one
true God is: God is man's creator, and
ruler and law giver. He values holiness and justice as
much as love. His hatred towards sin is as great as his
love for righteousness. (Psa 2:1-5, Psa 5:5-6, Psa
11:5-6, Prov 15:9)
- I will recognize who I am
in relation to God: We are hopelessly
lost, rebellious, hell-deserving sinners who want God to
be subject to us, our whims, our terms, our conditions,
and our brand of religion. (Gen 6:5, Jer 17:9, Isa 53:6,
Isa 59:1-4, Prov 13:19, Rom 1, Rom 3:10-12, Rom 3:23, Rom
9:20, Rom 10:3)
- I will recognize what God
expects of me: God expects and deserves
total obedience to all His commandments at all times,
even though man, because of his sin nature, is incapable
of faithful service to God. Man's corrupt spiritual
condition does not free himself from accountability to
God. (Matt 5:48, James 2:10)
- I will recognize that I
fall far short of what God expects of me: Even
our greatest acts of kindness and charity are considered
as filthy rags to God because our motives are tainted
with sin until and unless God gives us a new heart and a
new spirit. Just one sin can and will
separate a person from God for all eternity. (Isa 59:1-8,
James 2:10, Rev 21:8&27). Even when we are saved, our motives for doing
good things are not always pure. (Gen 6:5, Psa 58:3, Isa
64:6, Jer 17:9) In addition, a saved person cannot take any credit
for any "good" works that they do, because it is Christ working
in them to do good (Col. 1:27, Heb 13:21).
- I will recognize the
consequences of not living up to God's expectations: Eternal damnation in hell is the punishment that God
has prepared for those who die in their sins. Any
punishment less severe than that would detract from the
holiness of God and His hatred for sin. (Deut 32:22, 2Thes 1:7-9, Rev 14:11, Rev
- I will recognize the only
way of escape from the consequences of not living up to
God's expectations: We need a
supernatural scapegoat, who could meet God's requirements
for sinlessness and who could at the same time pay the
complete penalty that we owe for all of our sins, past,
present and future. We need God Himself, in the person of
Jesus Christ, to rescue us from hell and make us fit for
heaven in a way that is beyond our capability to reform.
(Gen 22:8, Isa 59:16, John 1:29, John 14:6, Acts 4:12)
- I will truly repent (turn from) my sins: We must cry out to God for mercy, imploring Him to
enable us to stop sinning, realizing that we are
incapable of changing without God's help. (Matt 4:17,
Luke 13:3, Luke 18:10-14, Acts 2:38, Acts 17:30-31, Acts
26:20, 2Cor 7:10). When we are truly saved, we positively WILL turn from
our sins, because we will have power of the Holy Spirit in us enabling us
to turn from our sins, even from sins that we did not recognize as sins
before we were saved (Ezek. 36:27, Col. 1:27, Heb 13:21). We will
have a changed life. We won't yet be capable of perfect obedience to
God but we will have a great desire to please Him and to obey Him
commandments in the Bible. People whom we have known in the past
won't like the change in us if they have not been changed by God.
- I will believe on Christ, the REAL Christ, not
a false Christ who cannot save me without my help, my efforts or the
efforts of my church, etc.:
Throwing ourselves on the mercy of God, we must trust in
Christ alone and the work HE ALREADY DID in subjecting
Himself to the full fury of the terrible wrath of God
when He suffered and died at Calvary. We need to believe
that He was buried and on the third day He arose from the
grave, claiming victory over death and proving that He is
eternal God and proving that God the Father was
completely satisfied with the work that Christ did on the
behalf of sinners, that Christ's work was complete and
all-sufficient payment for all the sins of all the people
Jesus came to save. (Mark 16:16, John 3:18, John 8:24,
Acts 16:31, Rom 19:9-10, 1Cor 15:19-20, Heb 10:12-14)
- I will understand that I need God to make me
spiritually alive, a new creature in Christ: Only
God can make a person acceptable to Himself. Salvation is
a transaction between a sinner and God. If God saves a
sinner, He credits the sinner with the perfect
righteousness of Christ (Php 3:9) and places all the sins
of the sinner on Christ (Isa 53:4-5). God must put His
Spirit in a person before they will ever be able to stand
in His presence in heaven. In doing that, God imparts a
new nature in the person and their attitude towards sin
changes. God causes them to turn away from sin and to
recognize Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord. This is
a supernatural act of God that is not initiated by water
baptism or by any other human effort. (Jonah 2:9, John
3:3, 2 Cor 5:17, Ezek 36:25-27)
Can we do any of the above things if we are spiritually
dead? Absolutely not! God must enable us to do these things:
John 6:44 - "No man can come to me, except the
Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up
at the last day."
God is the One who gives us eye salve and opens our blind eyes
to the truth of who God is and who we are and He does this by
resurrecting our spiritually dead soul:
John 11:25 - "Jesus said unto her, I am the
resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he
were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and
believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"
God does it all when it comes to a person becoming saved:
Ezekiel 36:25 - "Then will I sprinkle clean
water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness,
and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new
heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I
put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out
of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27
And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk
in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do
So what do we do with all this information about the Gospel? Well, if
we are like most professing Bible-believing Christians, we will not like
it. We may agree that the Gospel is of utmost importance but we won't like
to present it the way it was explained above. This really means that we do
not like to give people the whole counsel of God... because it may offend
them. And offend is exactly what God says HIS Gospel will do:
Matthew 15:8 - "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of
men. 10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were
offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."
Is not the "free-will" gospel a doctrine that represents the
commandments of men? ... men who are so spiritually blind, lost and
hopeless that they are COMPLETELY at the mercy of God to save them lest they
suffer the eternal consequences of their sins. It's certainly much more
pleasant to believe we have the "free-will" to turn to God any time we
feel like it and get Him to let us into heaven, even at the last minute by
exercising "simple faith" (whatever that is) and by saying a
"sinner's prayer" at the back of some 4-spiritual-laws pamphlet.
For those of us who are truly Christ's: should we worry if preaching the truth about
God's sovereignty and His NARROW way of salvation offends or causes
"disunity"? Should God's people want unity with those who deny
the truth of God's sovereignty, the truth of man's lostness, the truth of what
Christ accomplished at the cross and the truth of
plan of salvation?
2 Cor 6:14 - "Be ye not unequally yoked together with
unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"
Do you really believe that salvation is ENTIRELY of the Lord and requires no
cooperation from the sinner whatsoever? Do you believe that Christ died
for His people and His people alone? Do you believe that man - when yet unsaved
- is spiritually dead, in bondage to sin, unable to turn to God, in rebellion to
God and is wicked and ungodly from the perspective of a thrice-holy God, even
when on his best behavior?
If you don't believe these things that the Bible
declares to be absolutely true, then doesn't that make YOU an
Acts 13:38 - "Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto
are YOU trusting in?
"But though we,
or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than
that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we
said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other
gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be
accursed." [Galatians 1:8-9]
