I haven’t felt the need to write about this topic for a few years, but suddenly I see the same thing is happening yet again; thus it will continue to happen, over and over, no matter where I’m writing, reading, or interacting. People want to compromise on the bible and change it. People don’t like what it says because it offends. It does not compromise, so people tell us that we will have to. We must become “politically correct.” We must soften as Christians, we must compromise.
It’s the times we’re living in. It’s not coincidence. There are actually “new gospels” being preached over and over, offered by those who wish to give us a kinder, gentler, more updated gospel. Guess what! If you don’t like the old gospel, the powers that be can and will simply spin you a new one! But beware….
Believe it or not, readers, we received a stern warning in the bible in Galatians chapter one, via Paul.
In this part of the bible, Paul is lecturing passionately because apparently the same thing that is happening now was happening then. At that time, Paul was preparing the body of Christ for the trickery they would be exposed to, and thus it’s obvious that we must expect the very same thing and prepare ourselves and one another, just as they did then.
Historically-speaking, some things just don’t change; Satan attempting to trick and deceive the body of Christ is one of the things we can count on until this old Earth passes away and a new one is created.
Now let’s look at what Paul says:
“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all.
Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse!
As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ. –Galations 1: 6-12
And again we have yet another warning!
“For if he who comes to you would preach another Jesus to you, whom we have not preached to you, or you should receive another spirit which you have not received, or another gospel which you have not received, you may well be persuaded.” – 2 Corinthians 11:4
- Jesus was born of a virgin and is divine; His divinity cannot be questioned.
- Salvation is received through Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ alone.To get to God, one must go through only Jesus Christ.
- Jesus Christ is divine, the holy Son of God, but also came in a fleshly human body to walk the earth and die for the sins of the world, thus He is indeed both man and God.
- Jesus Christ was crucified for the sins of the world, rose on the third day, and ascended to the right hand of the Father. There is God the Father, The Holy Spirit, and Jesus Christ the Son.
- Jesus Christ will return for His church, the Second Coming.
- If we call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we will be saved.
- The scriptures are God-breathed, inspired, and sufficient to teach us.
We see these stated again and again for us within the Word:
That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10:9
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household.” -Acts 16:31
You crucified Jesus Christ, but God has brought him back to life. He is the stone that the builders rejected, the stone that has become the cornerstone. No one else can save us. Indeed, we can be saved only by the power of the one named Jesus and not by any other person.” -Acts 4: 10-12
JJesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. – John 14:16
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; – John 11:25
If anyone attempts to nullify or change these words and the plan of All Mighty God to save your soul, recognize what he or she is up to! It’s a trick. It’s a horrific trick to steal away your God-given right to salvation. You have a right to choose for yourself and be saved if you want to be. No one should be fooled or tricked out of it. Remember…
There. is. no. compromise.
Satan would have you believe that there is, though. He wants you to compromise on what the bible says. Who else desires that you not be saved? Who else would do anything he could to prevent your salvation through any means?
View the current and future twisting and mauling of these verses and what they promise with suspicion and wary caution. No one has anything to gain through stealing away our salvation but Satan and those who help him, (whether they know they are helping him or not).
Do not be fooled. There is no compromise. Don’t believe anyone who says there is.
