Counterfeit Churches: Do Not Know the Gospel, Can’t Preach It

PREACHING THE GOSPEL: Can't preach what you do not know.
THE APOSTATE CHURCHES, PREACHING THE GOSPEL: Can’t preach what you do not know.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved,”
1 Corinthians 15:1-2

THE COUNTERFEIT CHURCHES AND THE GOSPEL: CAN’T SHARE WHAT THEY DO NOT KNOW

Christians are commanded to share the gospel.

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Mark 16:15

But the apostate churches are full of tares, pretenders and counterfeits; which is one reason the gospel is not preached.

The gospel is under relentless attack by the churches. In its place, they offer a variety of other gospels.

Altar calls, ABC’s of Salvation, “letting Jesus into your heart,” sinners’ prayers, signing pledge cards, prayers of repentance, raising a hand at a revival: those in the churches avoid preaching the gospel at all costs.
Other Gospels: A Form of Godliness, No Power

And it makes sense for the apostates to hate and avoid the gospel:God’s Word declares that the gospel is the “power of God unto salvation.”

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

The last thing Satan’s counterfeit churches want is the power of God in their buildings.

The very last thing the churches want is a true believer in their midst.

Therefore, the gospel is not preached.

THE GOSPEL: DON’T KNOW IT, CAN’T SHARE IT

This past week, this writer asked a variety of church people about the gospel.

He is still waiting for one who knew what the gospel was.

Some admitted they did not know it. Some didn’t answer. Others tried other gospels. There were a variety of substitutes offered including John 3:16-17.

But no gospel.

It stands to reason: you can’t share what you do not know. And if you can’t share the gospel, then you are not a Christian.

The devil’s tares who occupy the pews neither know the gospel nor see the importance of sharing it.

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
-—1 Corinthians 1:18-19

Oh, some churches talk a great deal about sharing the gospel. Many wolves in the pulpits declare “The gospel! The gospel! We have to have the gospel! We need the gospel!”

But they refuse to preach the gospel.

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so”
Jeremiah 5:31

God’s Word predicted as much for the last days churches and the people who would inhabit the buildings.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4

Sadly, the gospel is not preached because the gospel is not known in the churches which profess to honor Jesus.

“For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.”
Titus 1:10-11

Sharing the gospel is the duty commanded of all Christians. Knowing and sharing the gospel is one good way to tell true Christianity from the deceiving, lying talk of the counterfeit churches.

Is the reader one of the talkers?

Is your calling and election sure?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
-—1 Corinthians 1:18-19
