“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.”
Pretend christianity sure does love it some fake and phony gospels: there’s no clearer sign of the end times.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
There is no better illustration of “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof” than the false (other) gospel.
The one argument that might make a hardline atheist stop and think… – This is from a supposedly Christian website. Is it referring to the gospel?
No, of course not.
It’s about using the logic of the writer.
The counterfeits will TALK about the gospel; they just won’t offer it to anyone.
Instead they offer the false substitutes of other gospels, which have no power to save. This is the reason so many counterfeits (Ken Ham) are eager to debate atheists or argue with them. They offer logic, reasoning, facts–anything but the gospel.
Wouldn’t want to see anyone get saved now, would they?
False gospels (other gospels) LOOK good–if one doesn’t look too closely–but they are powerless to save. These fraudulent “ways to salvation” are especially popular in the pagan buildings we call “the churches.”
- Altar calls.
- Sinner’s prayers.
- Pledge cards.
- Give your heart to Jesus pleas.
- Invite Jesus to live in your heart come-ons.
- ABC’s of Salvation
John 3:16 is even offered as a gospel! Now, John 3:16 is a wonderful verse–but it is NOT the gospel.
The overwhelming deception of other gospels is one of the true signs of the end times.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation. Other gospels may look good, sound good and tickle the ears of the unwary. But they are not the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Accept no substitutes!
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
“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 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.”
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
