There are many people, even now, that follow another gospel. People who have perverted the true gospel have led millions of people astray into believing a lie. They have diminished the true gospel. For you to understand this, we must first understand what the gospel message is. Paul said, “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.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) So the true gospel is that Jesus died for our sins on the cross and was then raised from the grave on the third day. However, there is a cult out there called “The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints”, or Mormons, that have taken the gospel message and desecrated it. This all happened after Joseph Smith received a message from an angel of light. Yes, I am telling you the truth. It was after this visitation that new scriptures came forth that taught that the sacrifice for sin started in Gethsemane and ended on the cross. It didn’t matter that the Bible said that the sins of mankind were paid for only the cross, this subtle change has caused Mormons to follow another gospel. Jesus is the lamb of God who came to take away the sins of the world, but only for those who do not take away from this ultimate sacrifice on the cross.
Paul warned of people following another gospel and said, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:6-10) As Paul said, I bring this to people’s attention, because I wish all people could be saved. Unfortunately, I cannot force people’s hands into following the true gospel message of the cross and resurrection in the Bible. People, like the Mormons, must make this decision on their own before they can be saved and go to heaven. Now to help you understand that the penalty of sin only happened on the cross, Paul also said, “and you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.” (Colossians 2:13,14) Therefore I pray that people will forsake every false teaching and come unto God to learn, instead of man. Only through Jesus can we be saved and not through religion. He is the only way to heaven.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will do what is necessary to get the blindfold off of their eyes. Many people are blinded because of the corrupt teachings of men, of which have desecrated Your holy scriptures. So many people are manipulating the Bible into believing what they want it to say, instead of being led by the Holy Spirit. Your Words are true when it says that we must be born again to enter the kingdom of God, and I am afraid that only people are really reborn in the Spirit. Where are those people who are living different lives for You? I often associate with people of all races, young and old, and their lives are often like those of the world. You are non-existent in the lives I speak to and most chuckle when I mention You in conversation. Where has this world gone, dear Lord? Where are Your saints who still long for You and trust in Your every word? I don’t want anything that will cause Your words to be manipulated or changed in any way. Your ways lead to life eternal and therefore, I will follow You, Jesus. I have nowhere else to go than to go after You and find what lies ahead in this life. My soul is tired of hearing the lies from people who appear to be righteous. Can’t people live unto You and not just say they are Christian? There is purity and holiness in Your words and therefore, I would never wish to bring darkness therein. Another gospel is also in many false churches/cults, of wish I pray that people will one day see. Especially for those people who are mixed in with these false teachings. Lead them out in the name of Jesus. I believe in You, Lord. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
