“insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
One of the signs of the end times is deception.
One of the times of the very last days: deception which is taught and accepted as if it was the truth BECAUSE men do not know the truth from lies.
Jesus vs. Paul – (h/t:BP) From time to time natural men (pretending to be Christians) pretend that what Jesus preached and what the apostle Paul preached was two different things.
Natural men CANNOT understand the Bible.
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
—1 Corinthians 2:14
The Bible is unlike any other book (though the world labors 24/7 to convince men that God’s Word is just a bunch of pieces written by mere men.) in that it is a unified whole without contradictions.
Those who toil attempting to show contradictions in the Bible reveal themselves for what they are: natural men, without the Holy Spirit (which will guide the believer into all truth) and unsaved.
This is both sad and unnecessary.
Sad, because such men are bereft of the glorious hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Unnecessary because Jesus suffered shame and physical death so such men might be saved.
Again, there was no “Jesus vs Paul.”
Except in the minds and mouths of the pretenders who haunt the churches and so-called Christian publishing.
There is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God.
“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
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
