    Preaching The False Gospel Today

    You hear this gospel almost weekly from the pulpit, "God loves you and sent Jesus to die for your sins."

    The hearers are right to respond that if God loves me that much and Jesus died for my sins then I am okay and have no need to worry about dying and what follows death.

    Hearers are right to respond, "How could the God,of such love and sacrifice, cast anyone to eternal conscious torment in hell?"

    This is today's gospel, but it is not the gospel preached by Jesus and the Apostles. It is not the gospel preaching found in the Book of Acts.

    The Gospel is Christ's Resurrection.

    Matthew 28:6 KJV Mark 16:6 KJV Luke 24:6 KJV

    He is risen. 1st Corinthians 15:14 KJV
    "Those who believe in Christ" are all the Christians, Catholic or not.

    I said
    The pulpit leaves out the IF's. And everything about a Christian has an If to it.

    ONLY CHRISTIANS IF? ONLY LOVED IF? IF IS A CONDITION

    Heb 3:5-6
    5 And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward,
    6 but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are IF we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.
    Eph 4:21
    21 IF indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:
    John 6:29
    29 Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent."
    Matt 11:27
    27 "All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
    1 Pet 4:17-18
    17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and IF it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
    18 Now "IF the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?"
    Heb 3:14
    14 For we have become partakers of Christ IF we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,
    I Jn 1:8-10
    8 IF we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    9 IF we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    10 IF we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
    2 Cor 10:3-5
    3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
    4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
    5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
    I Jn 2:4-5
    4 He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
    5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
    John 15:10
    10 "IF you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
    John 15:14
    14 "You are My friends IF you do whatever I command you.
    I Jn 2:3
    3 Now by this we know that we know Him, IF we keep His commandments.
    Matt 6:14-15
    14 "For IF you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
    15 "But IF you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
    I Jn 5:3-4
    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
    4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith.
    Rev 22:18-19
    18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: IF anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;
    19 and IF anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
    Matt 28:20
    20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
    (NKJ)Col 1:23
    23 IF indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
    (NKJ)

    xxx The IF's in the Word of God are conditions of love. There is no such thing as unconditional love. God says He will(not is) but will be a Father to us. If has always been one of the biggest conditions for love in God. God will love you IF.

    2 Cor 6:14-18
    14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
    15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?
    16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people."
    17 Therefore "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you."
    18 "I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."
    (NKJ)


    2 Pet 1:5-10
    5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge,
    6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness,
    7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.
    8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
    10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble;
    (NKJ)


    Gal 3:29
    29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
    (NKJ)

    Gal 5:24-25
    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
    25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
    (NKJ)

    John 15:7
    7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
    (NKJ)


    John 14:15
    15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments.
    (NKJ)

    John 15:10
    10 "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
    (NKJ)


    Heb 8:6-7
    6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.
    7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second.
    (NKJ)


    John 6:65
    65 And He said, "Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father."
    (NKJ)

    Luke 13:3
    3 "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.
    (NKJ)

    Luke 13:5
    5 "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish."
    (NKJ)

    God's love is not conditional upon our obedience. Such conditional love destroys any notion of grace. Such conditional love means people calling themselves Christians would have no peace and no assurance of salvation and no hope of glory. Only one's perfect obedience would receive God's love in return. Your unconditional love destroys the gospel!
