          Peter preached the one and only true gospel to the Jews in Jerusalem on the day of pentecost.
          Who could possibly disagree with this long accepted truth!

            Show us where Peter preached Christ's resurrection prior to His crucifixion.

            You can't, because he didn't.

              In other words, there's more than one gospel.

                'But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned(Gal1:8)

                Paul and Peter preached the same gospel(Gal 2:6-9).

                There is only one gospel!

                  There is only one gospel!
                  If it was the same gospel, then why would God need another Apostle to preach it (Paul) alone (the twelve for the most part never left Jerusalem after Paul's conversion)? I mean, you'd think having 12 apostles to preach the same gospel would be enough, and then they don't even do what they're told (go out into the world). Why add a 13th? Wouldn't it be better to leave one in Jerusalem and send the other 11 out into the world, instead of not sending any of the twelve out and sending one into the world?

                  In other words, WHY PAUL?

                  Also, Galatians 2:7-9 specifically mentions two different gospels.

                  The gospel of the uncircumcised, given to Paul, and the gospel of the circumcised, given to Peter.

                  But on the contrary, when they saw that the gospel for the uncircumcised had been committed to me, as the gospel for the
                  circumcised was to Peter (for He who worked effectively in Peter for the apostleship to the circumcised also worked effectively in me toward the Gentiles), and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. - Galatians 2:7-9 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...9&version=NKJV

                  So either Paul lied about there being two different gospels, or you're trying to distort scripture to fit your beliefs.

                  I'M going to go with the latter, and believe Paul.

                      Paul preached the gospel to the gentiles and Peter preached the gospel to the Jews.
                      Paul an apostle to the gentiles and Peter an apostle to the jews.
                      Both were called by God to their apostleships.
                      But it was the same gospel. the only gospel, the one true gospel.
                      There was not a circumcison gospel and a different one for the gentiles.

                            Paul is writing to his Galatian converts. 'We' obviously refers to Paul and his co-workers.

                              Paul said,'we are ...of those who believe to the saving of the soul.' he was confident of their salvation.
                              God or Paul would never shy away from their 'dire warnings' when needed(Gal1:8).
                              Jesus spoke dire warnings about hell and judgement to the disciples and his hearers.
                              Such warnings are an integral part of the gospel and gospel preaching.
                              Unlike Paul and Jesus many today shy away from preaching such warnings.

                                you were only forgiven of the sins you had committed up to that point in time!

                                “For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his OLD sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for IF you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:9-11, NKJV)
                                “OLD sins” is also in the KJV, RSV, NLT, AMP

                                “having forgotten his purification from his FORMER sins.” (2 Peter 1:9, NASB)
                                “FORMER sins” is also in the ESV

                                “forgetting that they have been cleansed from their PAST sins.” (2 Peter 1:9, NIV)
                                “PAST sins” is also in the HCSB

                                Now for some confirming NT passages …

                                Paul wrote this to the Corinthian church concerning his words of rebuke
                                in 1 Corinthians that he had sent to them concerning some particular sin(s).
                                They really needed to be sorrowful and repent.

                                “… the pain (from his rebuke) caused you to repent and change your ways. It was the kind of sorrow God wants His people to have, so you were not harmed by us in any way. For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. … worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual (eternal) death.”
                                (2 Corinthians 7:8-10, NLT)

                                “Yes, I am afraid that when I come again, God will humble me in your presence. And I will be grieved because many of you have not given up your old sins. You have not repented of your impurity, sexual immorality, and eagerness for lustful pleasure.” (2 Corinthians 12:21, NLT)


                                Peter is warning believers about God’s destruction of all ungodly and unholy people:
                                “Then he used the water to destroy the ancient (ungodly) world … the day of judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. … He is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed (perish spiritually), but (he) wants everyone to repent. … what holy and godly lives you should live … (you) make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight. … I am warning you ahead of time … Be on guard so that you will not be carried away by the errors …” (2 Peter 3:6-17, NLT)

                                John gives the condition for the Lord to forgive believers’ present sins:
                                “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
                                and to cleanse us from all wickedness (unrighteousness).” (1 John 1:9, NLT)

                                “This is an extremely important verse … all men need to be repeatedly purified from all unrighteousness – from all their sins … We must confess our sins and turn from them …
                                We must also confess them with our actions … (John) is talking here about repentance …
                                we must hate our sins and turn from them. This is true repentance.”
                                (The Applied New Testament Commentary; Dr. Thomas Hale)


                                2 verses later, John reminds believers to ask Jesus to plead our case before the Father:
                                “My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin.
                                But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father.
                                He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous.” (1 John 2:1, NLT)


                                Believers are responsible for repenting of their sins after they are born-again!
                                They have been given the Holy Spirit, a totally new nature, and God’s word.
                                So, they have been enabled to be victorious overcomers over sin, the world, and the devil.
                                They have no excuse for failing to do this.
                                This is good and true.
                                Oh how I love the Word of God!

                                Don't just hear the word and believe it---do it.
