If you are a Christian, you should be aware that fake preachers preach fake gospels that cannot save a soul from anything.
When the first Christians commenced spreading the True Gospel of Jesus Christ among the gentile nations, the Apostle Paul ultimately termed it “My Gospel” as stated in Rom 2:16 and Rom 16:25. This is because Paul’s Gospel contained a “mystery” (Eph 6:19) and that his Gospel had to be “obeyed” (Rom 10:16).
Paul ultimately concluded that it would be “his Gospel” used by Jesus Christ to judge Christians at ‘The Judgment’:
"In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ ACCORDING TO MY GOSPEL." (Romans 2:16)
The Apostle Peter stated in his own epistle that many of Paul’s statements were hard to understand. He also emphasised Paul’s Gospel needed to be obeyed (2 Peter 3:16).
"As also in all his [Paul's] epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they [today's Christians] that are unlearned [of Bible understanding] and unstable wrest[le], as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction." (2 Peter 3:16)
Fake preachers preach fake gospels – always
Back in the Apostle Paul’s day, he encountered fake preachers in most places that he traveled to. These people had perverted his True Gospel into fake gospels. These were aimed to appeal to people’s carnal senses, but couldn’t save anyone from spending eternity in Hell after their death.
"Because THE CARNAL MIND is enmity [or an enemy] against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." (Romans 8:7)
"For if he that cometh preacheth ANOTHER JESUS, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive ANOTHER SPIRIT, which ye have not received, or ANOTHER GOSPEL, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." (2 Corinthians 11:4)
The Apostle Jude states that he also encountered similar fake preachers as revealed in the two verses below:
"Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common[ly accepted understanding of] salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once [or originally] delivered unto the saints. 4 FOR THERE ARE CERTAIN [evil] MEN CREPT IN [to the churches] unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ [through their false gospels]." (Jude 1:3-4)
In other words, “certain ungodly men crept in among God’s people unawares“. Their aim to pervert what the church was established to do. This was to preach the True Gospel of Jesus Christ – meaning Paul’s Gospel to unsaved sinners.
The situation back then is no different today. In fact, it is so much worse.
Today’s false gospel preachers
My studies have revealed that unless a Christian truly experiences the ‘New Birth‘ (John 3:3-8), it is impossible for them to grow into spiritual maturity.
This growth occurs throughout the following stages AFTER the “new birth” has been experienced (John 3:3-8):
- “an infant at the breast” (Isa 28:9); then
- “a babe in Christ” (1 Peter 2:2); then
- “a little child” (Matt 18:3); then
- “a strong young man in Christ” (1 John 2:13); then
- “a father” figure who produces ‘offspring’ (1 John 2:13; 1 Tim 1:2; Phil 1:10);
- and possibly become a “a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Tim 2:3).
Believing and living this life of spiritual growth represents the only Gospel that can save Christians from Hell.
The chart below illustrates the growth stages that God the Father requires to see in His children on the Earth.
Please note on the bottom level representing the ‘Religious Life‘. This level represents the beliefs of Christians who prefer “the doctrines and traditions of men” (Mark 7:7). None of these beliefs can save anyone from spending eternity in Hell.
Since promoting Paul’s Gospel on my blog,I have contacted over 100 Christian ministry leaders to discuss this matter. In this, have found no Christians willing to enter into discussion on this topic. Could this be that fake preachers preaching fake gospels are among those contacted?
"For the time will come when they [today's Christians] WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves [false] teachers, having itching ears [to hear more of their lies]; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and [Biblical truth] shall be turned unto fables." (2 Tim 4:3-4)
Please watch this video, as it explains what the Bible reveals about ‘the race set before us‘ (Heb 12:1). It also explains spiritual growth and Initial and Final Salvation.
