GOD'S ONLY GOSPEL
- ONLY ONE GOD, ONLY ONE JESUS, ONLY ONE GOSPEL -
"...addicted...to the ministry of the saints.…For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ."
(1 Cor. 16:15; Eph. 4:12)
“…we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved…”
Grace and peace to all who love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity and in truth, and who believe and rejoice in His name according to the Scriptures. We trust you are well, and that you continue to believe, judge by, and have great joy in, God’s one and only Gospel which alone contains His Testimony that must be believed in, of the Person and Work of His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The following is an excerpt from my new book, ‘A Reason and Purpose for Everything’: Are we to allow ourselves to be swayed by a collection of particular moral values, of doing ‘good’ rather than ‘evil’, in a life which allegedly has no meaning or purpose other than death? And why for that matter would a good life be any better than an evil one in a morally relative, empty world which has no meaning? “…if God does not exist, there really is no foundation for objective moral values and duties. Nothing would really be objectively good or bad, or right or wrong, if God does not exist. All our actions would lack objective moral meaning; every act would be morally neutral… If God does not exist, that’s all that morality is—not an objective reality, but a matter of personal taste and preference—an illusion.” Where does the reason and purpose for a good life come from? ‘It’s better to be good than bad’. ‘Be a good boy’, ‘Be a good little girl’, ‘Be good’. WHY? ‘Don’t’ do anything I wouldn’t do’, WHY NOT? If reason and purpose do not exist, who is to say what is good or evil? How does one defend absolutely that which is only subjective? People say, ‘Well, evil hurts people’, granted, however, those performing the evil actually enjoy it, it makes them feel good, so who is to say that being good does not also include doing evil? In a world where morality is subject to what each individual says it is, who is to say that the pursuit of pleasure and happiness cannot also include hurting, or even killing, others? If the pursuit of pleasure and happiness are the order of the day in a Nihilistic world, where does anyone get the notion to regulate how a person derives pleasure and personal happiness? Why set up restrictions and barriers to a person’s pursuit of happiness when the pursuit of happiness, according to many, is all there is? I mean, if the pursuit of happiness includes the murder of a child yet in its mother’s womb, why bother with any petty restrictions such as speed limits on roads, or laws preventing cruelty to animals? If the pursuit of happiness is the order of the day then everything must fall into line with what a man wants to do in his pursuit of said happiness. ■

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy” (Jas. 3:17).
EVERY DAY WITHOUT FORGIVENESS
WOUNDS THE SOUL MORE, AND MORE.
Sacrifice is not forgiveness, it is a pitiful, selfish, attempt to score points with God on your terms whilst avoiding mercy and obedience to forgive like God forgives.
The following is an excerpt from my book, ‘That’s Just Your Opinion!’:
These last days may with certainty be described as the age of views and opinions. They number in the hundreds of millions perhaps even billions. It seems that everyone has a view about one thing or another. And, never has there been so many forums such as Internet Web Sites, Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets through which to express, or to come into contact with, those opinions. Many think this is right while others are just as convinced that is right. In the current climate, replete with an overwhelming amount of information available at the click of a computer mouse, it would seem that the truth of just about anything is being slowly eroded even to the point of it not being that relevant because of the tide of people's opinions constantly washing in. Because there are so many varying opinions out there that all claim to be the truth, and with increased access to all this via the Internet, many have reached the point of information overload and apparently given up on their 'search for truth'. Not coincidentally, many teenagers, who are among the most prolific users of the Internet, in particular those aged between 15-17, have ceased to believe in the very existence of truth. Others have become docile, and, in some cases, unquestioningly submissive to what they have been told the truth is and what they have become familiarly comfortable in believing. It would appear there is something that has risen above truth in these last days. That there is something which has superseded even truth in the minds of men. Subjectivity! Subjectivity always places the emphasis on what a man thinks rather than on what the truth is. The question is no longer 'What is Truth', but, 'What do you think the truth is?' What matters now, what is becoming increasingly important in the minds of many, is a person's personal opinion. Man is become so puffed up that even when faced with undeniable truth he still values an opinion despite its glaring denial of that truth. Opinions, according to the world, must at all costs, in this ever so delicate and increasingly politically correct climate, be respected. The accuracy of one's opinion is not what's important. Nor does it matter whether we agree with another's view or whether we believe it to be right or wrong. We must never judge, contradict or criticize but always respect and consider another's view, especially when it comes to religion. Failure to do so will label you closed-minded and bigoted, unloving and insensitive. Some will even be ostracized. It's not that people are against judging, for people judge others, especially in their private thoughts, in a myriad of ways every day of their lives from their physical features to the clothes they wear, from the car they drive to the house they live in. To judge in a positive light is the only accepted form of judging another particularly when in the company of others. It is only negative judging, be it fact-based or not, that is frowned upon particularly in the religious world. Ironically, the only time judging in a negative light meets with the religious world's approval is when one judges a person who claims that another person's beliefs are false and the person who believes them as lost. (continued on page 3)…

Such a person immediately draws criticism from all corners and is accused of being judgemental and unloving. These people, who pride themselves on their tolerance of error in those who believe differently to them who claim to be Christian, reveal their capacity for tolerance to be quite limited for they are utterly, and hypocritically, intolerant of those who genuinely are Christians who bring with them the Gospel of God. It seems that the only thing these tolerant ones have no tolerance for is Truth. ■
A false gospel is not to be judged so when its errors reach a certain point, but in the fact that it contains any error at all! - “Christ Shall Profit You Nothing”
If there is anything different about a gospel, anything in it which differs from that great Gospel of God, it is a gospel that cannot save, and God will not tolerate anyone who believes in anything that differs from His Gospel!! After all, isn’t salvation about believing what GOD has said and repenting of what man’s doctrines teach, of everything that contradicts what God has said? - “Christ Shall Profit You Nothing”
God has promised to save His people from their sins, and the Gospel of the grace of God explains how He does it. - The Doctrines Of The Gospel Of The Grace Of God
For salvation to be all of grace, it stands to reason that ALL of salvation must be all of grace.
- The Gospel Of The Doctrines Of The Grace Of God
Be willing to know the truth as God has written It and be fully abandoned to it regardless of the earthly consequences. - The Blasphemy Against The Holy Spirit
According to the Word of God, the only unity that can exist is that between light and light or darkness with darkness. NEVER CAN THERE BE A UNION BETWEEN LIGHT AND DARKNESS. - The Blasphemy Against The Holy Spirit
Does doctrine not matter anymore? Does what a person believe not matter anymore? Are we to conclude that what a person believes about Jesus is unimportant or even irrelevant, that it has no bearing on the issue of salvation, so long as they have the name right? - Another Jesus
When has false doctrine about the true Jesus ever revealed a proper and right image of Who the true Jesus is and what the True Jesus has done? - Another Jesus
ONLY THE LOST DO NOT KNOW THE GOSPEL. - Believing Has A Beginning
The following is taken from my book, ‘Thou Shalt Surely Die’:
Not one person in the whole of Scripture was made alive by their will but only by the will of God. And yet people remain convinced that man has a free will that can draw him to God! Ladies and gentlemen I present to you the natural spiritual state of mankind: dead to God and dead to His Truth. Scripture teaches with abundant clarity that a man is saved not by the man's choice of God but by God's choice of the man. God chose man BEFORE the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4). In light of this single verse how could any person confuse the issue of who chose whom? How can anyone still fall for the lie that man chooses God? (cont. page 4)…
DECEMBER 2017 GOD’S ONLY GOSPEL 4
There can be no other answer but that those who believe man chooses God are spiritually dead, and that only those who have been made spiritually alive by God see clearly that it was God's choice of them. GOD CHOOSING MAN IS GRACE AND MAN CHOOSING GOD IS WORKS. It is as simple as that: "(For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him that calleth;)" (Rom. 9:11; cf. Eph. 3:11). Election is according to grace and not what a man does. In other words, election is according to God, His will: "...I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy..." (Rom. 9:15). For many people, the doctrine of election is one that simply does not make any sense, for it appears to contradict the teachings that God is Love and no respecter of persons. Salvation is based on the Will, Love and Grace of God, and is not conditioned on anything a person does which would make them to differ from others. Therefore, election cannot rightly be said to be an example of God being a respecter of persons. However, God’s saving those who have ‘chosen Him’ would indeed be a case of God’s being a respecter of persons for His saving them would not be based on His grace, but upon what they have done. Election is even seen as a doctrine which shuts many people out of heaven who desire entry. Thus, it is concluded by many that the doctrine of election is just not fair; that God would be unjust to select only some people to show His grace and mercy towards, in granting the gift of salvation, and simply leave the rest to themselves, or worse still, appoint them to His Wrath and consign them to Hell. The reason behind such a conclusion is the flawed foundation upon which these notions are based—a foundation which contradicts God's very clear and succinct warning to Adam that "...of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely DIE" (Gen. 2:17). Again, man is not a neutral creature, but one who is dead to God and at enmity with Him. All those who hate election are subscribers to the satanic lie that man is not dead in sin and dead to God. Consequently, they believe that, as in every area of life, man has the freedom, ability and capability to choose God. What they fail to accept is the fact that man is dead in sin and cannot choose God, nor can he even seek Him, for his will is in bondage to sin and heavily biased against the True God and toward false gods. All Arminians, and those like them, believe in election. Their idea of election is that man elects God rather than the Scriptural teaching that God elects man. The satanic lie, upon which the teachings of man's free will and Christ dying for every individual ever born are based, is seen in Satan's conversation with Eve wherein he replies to God's warning to Adam: "And the Serpent said unto the woman, 'Ye shall not surely die'" (Gen. 3:4). Those who remain firm believers in Satan's lie, rather than in the fulfilment of God's warning to the letter, shall die in their sins. ■
