THAT'S JUST YOUR OPINION! (PART 13)
"...after the wisdom of man, an human invention and contrivance, a device and fiction of man's brain; nor was it after the mind of man, or agreeably to his carnal reason, it was disapproved of by him, and beyond his capacity to reach it; nor was it of his revealing, a discovery of his; flesh and blood, human nature, could never have revealed it... that is, by man; he did not learn it of men, as men learn law, physics, logic, rhetoric, natural philosophy, and other things at school: meaning, not through Christ being revealed to him by the Father, as in (Galatians 1:16) though it is a sense not to be overlooked; but by Christ, the revealer of it to him...without the interposition, or use of any man, or means, gave him such light into it, and such a furniture of mind for the preaching of it, that he directly, as soon as ever he was baptized, set about the ministration of it, to the admiration of the saints, and confusion of the enemies of Christ. These words furnish out another proof of the Deity of Christ; for if the Gospel is not after man, nor received of, or taught by man, but by Christ, then Christ cannot be a mere man, or else being by him, it would be by man; and which also confirms the authority and validity of the Gospel, and carries in it a strong reason for the apostle's anathematizing all such as preach any other" (see Galatians 1:11,12). The Gospel is seen, understood and believed in by the Faith of God given by the Grace of God to the people of God. No elect child of God can be saved without it. No mere gospel of, and by, man has ever saved anybody. Only God's Gospel is authorized and validated, if you will, by God. False gospels simply do not have the same DNA as God's Gospel. God's fingerprints are nowhere to be found on false gospels. God recognizes only one Gospel as His Gospel and so do all His people. IF GOD HAS NOT SAVED YOU, YOU ARE NOT SAVED! So simple and yet so profound. No man is saved by God unless God has drawn that man to Him by the revelation of the Gospel (see John 6:44,65). If you believe another gospel you are not saved. God does not save through any other gospel but His own! God saves His people by revelation which comes by grace granting Faith to savingly believe His Gospel and reject every other god and every other jesus of every other gospel. Salvation is all God! This is how He saves. Man's believing is all a work of God: "...This is the Work of God, that ye believe on Him Whom He hath sent" (John 6:29). To believe in the Lord Jesus is a work of God in the heart of man; To believe in a counterfeit savior is not the work of God, it is not the evidence of salvation but it is the evidence of lostness. A person is saved by God's Work and not his own. THAT is grace. That is salvation by GRACE. Man does not choose God but God chooses man (see John 15:16). Man's choosing God, even if that choosing is attributed to grace, would still be a work of man's for salvation would depend upon it. It would be something which man has to do before salvation could take place. Conversely, believing is not a work of man's but the fruit of saving grace. God's people are not a generation of choosers but a chosen generation. Choosing implies something you must do; a decision you must make; being chosen implies something done by, and according to, another's will not because of you but for you. "...ye are a chosen generation..." (1 Peter 2:9). When someone turns on the light, you do not choose to see it, you just see it. You have been made to see what you cannot deny. God's salvation work upon a man causing him to believe in His only Gospel is grace in action. There is no other way to salvation than by believing in the true Son of the true God as He is revealed in God's one and only true Gospel. The Gospel of God is not some subjective thing. The Gospel is not filled with an indeterminable number of doctrines for the doctrines of the Gospel teach what grace had to do to save God's elect from their sins. The Gospel is not open to opinion about what you believe it is or isn't. God's Gospel is God’s property and if what you believe it is, however sincerely, is not what God says it is, then you are not a believer in Truth but in a perverted image of what the real Truth is. You are in love with a reflection of that which lies within the souls of spiritually dead men. All this is said not to criticize anyone. It is not said with some high brow prideful, elitist or even hateful attitude towards anyone. The warnings made, and evidences provided, in this book have been written in love. This author has sounded the warning bell loudly and clearly by showing what God's Word says on the matter. The trumpet blast has been made distinct for of what use has an alarm which makes a quiet or indistinct sound. The aim is to announce the True Gospel providing Scriptural evidence which cannot be denied, and to warn people of the subtleties of false gospels. I beseech you all to "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the Faith; prove your own selves..." (2 Corinthians 13:5).
Recently, I heard a person expressing their dismay, anger and frustration at a man they'd heard claim that only he and those who believe like him are going to heaven. The man who made the statement was only a professing christian for he does not believe in the Gospel of Christ, however, it made me wonder what such people think when they read Scripture and see Christ's own words that only those who agree with and believe God's Gospel will be saved and that those who do not believe that one and only Gospel of God will be damned. "...Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned" (Mark 16:15,16 cf. 2 Thessalonians 2:12). Only those who believe not the Gospel of God shall be damned. Only those who believe God's Gospel shall be saved. Notice the terminology of the apostle Peter writing to the elect: "For the time is come that Judgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God" (1 Peter 4:17). Observe how Peter makes a clear distinction between the elect of God, us, and all who are not elect, whom he refers to as them who do not obey God's Gospel. The implication is obvious in that the chosen of God are not among those that obey not the Gospel but are the only ones who do obey it. In the following verse Peter further impresses upon his readers the distinct difference between the two groups: "And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?" (1 Peter 4:18). Here Peter refers to the elect, those who do obey God's Gospel, as righteous, and therefore saved. The others, who do not obey the Gospel of God, are referred to as ungodly and sinners and are definitely not among the saved. The Lord Jesus teaches this clearly in John's Gospel by highlighting the fact that the difference between salvation and condemnation is believing and unbelief: "...whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life....whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life....He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:15,16,18). The words believed and believeth mean to place confidence in and reliance upon and do not refer to some mere intellectual faith (cf. James 2:19). Further on in John's Gospel, the Lord Jesus again states: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life" (John 5:24 cf. 1 John 3:14). It must again be pointed out that Christ is speaking of Himself and not some false christ who also goes by the name jesus. What must this angry and frustrated person, and others like them, think of the words of Jesus which specifically state that believing anything other than His Gospel shows that one is already in a condemned state, or of the apostle Paul when He says that if anyone, even an angel sent from God, comes preaching a different Gospel to his it would be all the evidence necessary to reveal that person to be in an accursed state? Would they say Paul had an unloving and elitist attitude? Would they accuse him of being part of a cult? And what of the Lord Jesus Himself, Who said that only those who believe His Gospel will be saved and those who do not believe it will be damned? Would they call Jesus unloving, noninclusive, elitist and a cult leader? These people seem to live in a fantasy world that has convinced them that everyone is right despite their answer, despite what they believe. That everyone has the true God despite what they believe the Gospel of God to be, despite their denial of the very doctrines which define Him and what He has done for His people. That most will go to heaven because they were not that bad a sinner. That as long as a person is nice, kind and loving and is religious in some way, or has someone praying for them, they are heaven bound. That no one is wrong simply because what they believe is not true! That how a person presents themselves, what they appear to be, must be what they are. If they are religious then they must know God and be bound for heaven. After attending funeral after funeral and hearing eulogy after eulogy one would think that only good people die. That no one has any right to not take everyone at face value. If a person simply says they love God then it must automatically be the true God they love!
That whether God calls a person blessed or accursed they will nevertheless go to Heaven despite what they believed and did not believe here on earth. It does not matter who or what they trusted but the fact that they trusted at all. It does not matter who or what they believed but the fact they believed at all. That their faith was in someone or something is enough to show they were loved of God. People such as these who are egregiously offended by such statements made by the Lord Jesus as 'believe the Gospel or be damned', all believe something about God. They all have their ideas and theories about God yet they collectively rear up in protest against the true Gospel believer who knows God and who righty points out why all others are false. So, are we to presume that such people believe that God does not have only one Gospel, but that God has many Gospels and that all the different faiths of the world all lead to the same and only true God? That there are many doors through which you may enter but all lead to the same room? That God is revealed not only in His Gospel but also in the opinions of men. That detail, though vital in all areas of life, is puzzlingly inconsequential when it comes to Who God is and what His Gospel says. That a person can place their faith in any god, or in anything they believe to be true of the true God, and still be accepted into Heaven? That believing that God's name is Jesus is enough to get anyone into Heaven. People who just take it for granted that when they say the names 'God' and 'Jesus' they are automatically referring to the true God and to the true Jesus, fail to realise that there are many false gods who go by those names. If one stops to listen to what they actually believe about God and Jesus one quickly sees that though they have the names right their doctrines teach another god and describe another jesus. People say, 'Well, the Bible says to believe in His name, doesn't it'. Indeed it does but to believe in the name of Jesus is to believe in the Person Jesus and His Works. The angel told Joseph to call His name Jesus "...for He will save His people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21). To believe in His name is to know and believe Who He is, and what He has done to save His people from their sins. The jailer's question "What must I do to be saved" in Acts 16, may well have been phrased: 'Who must I believe in and in what must I trust to be saved?' To truly believe in Him one must know what to believe. This is revealed in the Gospel of Christ. The Commandment of God is "...That we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ..." (1 John 3:23). To receive Christ is to believe on Him: "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power (the right, or, privilege) to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12). To believe the Gospel of Christ, and therefore the true Jesus, is to believe according to the Scriptures and not one's opinions as to who He is and what He has done (see 1 Corinthians 15:3,4). Christ's people are all, and only, saved by the Gospel of God. Belief in any other will not save you. "...I declare unto you THE GOSPEL which I preached unto you...BY WHICH ALSO YE ARE SAVED..." (1 Corinthians 15:2 cf. John 15:3; Ephesians 5:26). Did not the Lord Jesus state that He is the Truth? "...I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me" (John 14:6 cf. Hebrews 7:25). The way to get from A to C is B, not D, E, F or G. The way to salvation is TRUTH: the Lord Jesus Christ as He is revealed in the Gospel of God. And what is the means whereby a man comes to the Father by Jesus? By Grace through Faith in the Gospel of God. The saved man believes the Gospel of Jesus Christ which alone reveals the Truth about Him: Who He is, what He has done and for whom He has done it. If there is only one true Jesus then it must be that there is only one True Gospel which reveals Him, which reveals His Righteousness as the only ground of salvation. What need would there be for a second or third or even a fourth Gospel? What would such 'Gospels' reveal of the grace of God in the salvation of His people that the only Gospel has not? The apostle Paul's entire ministry was to "...testify the Gospel of the Grace of God" (Acts 20:24 cf. 20:32). Paul also referred to the Gospel of God as "...THE POWER of God unto salvation..." (Romans 1:16), not powers. He also spoke of "...the record that God gave of His Son" (1 John 5:10), not records of His Son. And in Galatians 2 the apostle refers to the Gospel he preached as "...that Gospel which I preach..." (Galatians 2:2) not those Gospels which I preach. All God's people, the true brethren of Christ who are one with Him "...for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren," (Hebrews 2:11), hold only to the Testimony of Christ, the Record that God has given of His Son.
To be a Christian one must believe the Gospel of God. One must believe the essentiality of Faith and trust toward THAT one and only record that God has given of His Son which alone is the power of God unto salvation. To truly believe in the One God one must believe in His One Gospel and reject all others counting oneself and others lost before they ever heard and believed the true. No one can rightly claim to have been saved prior to Faith in God and in His one and only Gospel: His Testament, that which alone is to be trusted, about the Person and Work of Jesus Christ His Son. To claim to have been saved without, or prior to, believing the Gospel of God is to say that one was saved without God. Saved without His Grace, without His Truth and without the gift of Faith to believe it. To say one was saved without the Gospel is to say one was born again without His Word, a direct denial of Scripture: "Being BORN AGAIN, not of corruptible seed, but of Incorruptible, BY THE WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth forever....But the Word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the Word which BY THE GOSPEL is preached unto you " (1 Peter 1:23). A vegetable or fruit cannot be reproduced without the appropriate and necessary seed. So too, a Christian cannot come into being without the Incorruptible Seed of God: His Gospel. It is clear to this author that people claiming there is more than one Gospel to believe that can save, or that God will excuse people who have placed their trust in false gospels and save them anyway, literally hate the Truth. Why else would any person insist there is more than one Way to salvation, thus denying the very words of Christ, not to mention Christ Himself, Who declared: "I am THE Way...no man cometh unto the Father but by ME" (John 14:6), if they were not filled with the spirit of anti-Christ to begin with? Why else would a person insist there is more than one correct answer to an equation if they did not in some way oppose the only true and correct answer, or because they are simply too foolish and ignorant to see it? Attempting to circumvent the truth, denying it by adding anything to, or taking anything from, it is to aspire to evade, and therefore avoid, reality. Believing that any other gospel can save, apart from or as well as God's Gospel, is a foolish, vain and blasphemous attempt to evade the Truth of God, and therefore, the God of Truth. To not settle on and be satisfied with the Gospel of God as God's only power to save and yet claim one is a Christian, is to involve oneself in spiritual anarchy and the creation of an alternate 'reality' by insisting there are other ways to salvation as well as, or instead of, God's only Way. Curiously, no one who claims to be a Christian consciously subscribes to the lie that God saves through another jesus, one who is not His Son, and yet, they pay little or no regard to the Gospel of God which reveals His True Son and distinguishes Him from all impostors. On the one hand false Christians say 'Christ is the Way', and on the other they claim one can be saved via a gospel which does not teach THAT Way! The Gospel of God distinguishes itself from all others, it stands out from all others, because it is God's ONLY power unto salvation (see Romans 1:16,17). End of argument! The haters of Truth hate the absoluteness and finality of Truth and the exclusivity of it all as well as the fact that whatever they do or believe, however sincerely, will not do them one bit of good if what they believe is not the Truth of God. Natural man is extremely frustrated with the Gospel of the Grace of God for it says man can do nothing to either gain or maintain salvation. It says that God alone by grace alone saves only the ones He chooses. The sinful nature of man sees this not as an expression of the love and mercy of God, but only as an obstruction to his boasting of 'good works'. This sinful nature has given him an insatiable and voracious appetite to 'get in on the act'. If a man can't do anything to get saved, his sinful nature dictates that there is something he can do to lose his salvation. If a man does not believe the Gospel of God then he says a man can believe other gospels and still be saved, etc. Man has even twisted the very meaning of grace so as to include his own deeds as necessary to being and/or remaining saved. Someone once said, "Truth is hate to those who hate the Truth". If you doubt this, just try and tell someone the Gospel of God, and inform them that God saves in no other way but by grace through the gift of Faith that believes exclusively in His only Gospel plan of salvation, and you will see the 'nicest' most 'loving' of people turn ugly right before your eyes. Smoke will be coming out of their ears because of the hatred they have for the true God, His Truth and His true people. Jesus says: "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hatheth you....I have given them Thy Word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world" (John 15:18,19; 17:14). People are fine with what they believe the truth to be. They simply do not want the Truth defined for them by God. They claim to love the Truth yet rebel against it every time they hear it from one of God's elect. But the truth they love is merely a reflection of themselves. It is only a false image of the truth which they abide in. Within the world which they have invented through the agency of their sin-soaked minds, and formed by their heresies, everything is just fine and dandy thank you. Regaled and transfixed by false teachers, who appear as ministers of Christ, and deceived by the lies of the angel of light, these people are tragically out of touch with Scriptural reality for in the world of God's reality they are nothing but accursed people. The false gospels of such people, who inhabit a spiritual twilight zone, are nothing more than fantasies derived from their dreamlike state and substituted in the place of, what is for them, the unpleasant reality of God's true and only Gospel. Apparently, according to such 'thinkers', man has every right to believe what he wants to believe the Gospel of God is, but God has no right to declare what His Gospel is!
Satan’s primary goal is to promote himself. One of the principle ways he does this is through lies spoken in the very name of the God he so utterly detests. All deception is self-centred and Satan is the ultimate sociopath in that he lies to get his own way but also in order to cause as much confusion, destruction and misery to others as possible. His main method of operation is not to come out and openly declare his hatred for God and His Son but instead has opted for a much subtler war on the Holy God and all who seek to follow Him. SATAN HAS DECLARED WAR ON TRUTH, NOT IN ORDER TO DESTROY TRUTH, FOR HE CANNOT, BUT TO SUPERIMPOSE IT WITH HIS OWN VERSION. Satan hates the truth but not the idea of truth, for Satan wants people to believe his lies are truth. Satan does not want to abolish the idea of truth as much as he seeks to confuse and replace the truth with his own versions of it. Critical to the success of any deception is the innate desire of people to believe. At the very least, Satan needs the concept of truth just as people need something to believe in. It is in man's nature to trust. Man has a natural disposition, an inherent and desperate need, to trust, and Satan knows this all too well. One example of the many deceptions of the Devil concerning confusion and the replacement of truth with his own versions of it is that Satan will tell you that Jesus is indeed the Christ, that He is Lord, (Matt. 24:5), but what he says about ‘Jesus’ identifies him, not as the one and only Son of God, of Whom God bears record to, Who came to save His people from their sins, but as another jesus, a false jesus of whom God does not testify and who cannot save. One false minister, Kenneth Copeland, has a large 'JESUS IS LORD' sign in the background wherever he preaches, however, it is not the True Jesus that he is referring to but the counterfeit one he advocates through his preaching of a false gospel. Not everything that presents itself as truth is truth. And not every gospel presented to us is the Gospel of God. Not every jesus presented to us is the True Jesus of the True Gospel. In fact, there is no true Gospel except God's Gospel. One Gospel containing one Truth about the One True Savior. There is none other God but One "...we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one" (1 Corinthians 8:4). God says of the world: "...they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save" (Isaiah 45:20). Images of God are not limited to those made of stone and wood but are also commissioned by man's sinful nature and subsequently formed by false doctrine in the minds of men (see Jeremiah 7:24; 9:14; 11:8; 13:10). "Man’s imagination builds self-exalting structures." False gospels, indeed all false teachings, are in place of the true. They are in place of what God has said. False gospels are anti-God, they are anti-Christ being not only against His Gospel but in place of God. They do not present the true God, the true Christ, but another. When one believes a false gospel one is not believing in the true God but in a false god. Therefore all worship of false gods is nothing short of idolatry. It is to have fellowship with devils and, in effect, is a worship of Satan (see 1 Corinthians 10:20,21). The apostle Paul refers to those who follow false teachings as those who give "...heed to seducing spirits..." and abide not in the doctrines of the Gospel but in "...doctrines of devils" (1 Timothy 4:1). Those who believe in false gospels unwittingly worship the angel of light (see 2 Corinthians 11:14), and not the God of Truth. A false god is Satan in disguise. "Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods" (Galatians 4:8). "Whilst in Gentilism, and in a state of unregeneracy, they had no true knowledge of God; though they might know by the light of nature, and works of creation, that there was a God, yet they did not know who He was, but called either mortal men, or some one or other of the creatures, or stocks, and stones, and images of men's device, by this name; they knew not the God of Israel; they did not know God in Christ, and are therefore said to be without him; and a common description of them it is, that they knew not God: and whilst this was their case, what follows was true of them, only by name, and in the opinion of men, but have no divinity in them, are only called gods, mere nominal, fictitious deities, who have nothing of the nature and essence of God in them; for there is but one God by nature and essence, the Father, Son, and Spirit; ALL OTHERS HAVE ONLY THE NAME AND APPEARANCE, BUT NOT THE TRUTH OF DEITY; and these the Gentiles in their times of ignorance did "service" to, which is what the Jews call (hrz hdwbe) , "strange service"; that is, idolatry, concerning which there is a whole treatise in the Talmud, and which bears that name." The Lord God states clearly: "...there is no God else beside Me; a Just God and a Savior; there is none beside Me. Look unto Me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I Am God, and there is none else" (Isaiah 45:21,22). God has also declared: "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me" (Exodus 20:3). False gods come via false gospels. Therefore, no true, saved child of God will believe in them just as he will never again serve a false god that cannot save (see Matthew 24:24). According to 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 there is only one Spirit, one Lord and one God: "...the same Spirit....the same Lord....the same God..." The Jewish culture and traditions were vastly different to those multiple cultures, traditions and superstitions of the Gentiles. Yet those among the Jews and Gentiles who were elect of God were all led by the Spirit of Truth to the one true God via His one true Gospel. All these ones did not continue in the various and contrasting religious traditions and beliefs from which they were brought out of. Once they became saved they did not retain their hold on their contrasting and contradictory beliefs about Who God is and what God has done to save, but let go of those fables for they now believed in the same Gospel of God. They were of one mind concerning the one God for they were all led to, and believed, His one Gospel. They no longer held onto opposing doctrines about God for their doctrines all came from the one Gospel, the Gospel about God, the Gospel of God. There is, and can only be, no other Gospel that is the power of God to save but God's only Gospel. One God Who is the God of Truth. One God, One Truth, One Gospel. One Grace that saves only through One Faith in One Gospel. How many true Gods can there be? How many true Gospels can there be? How many true Gospels are needed to proclaim the Truth of the one true God?
The following is a very brief telling of what the Gospel of God is. For more detailed teaching please refer to my other writings such as 'God's Only Gospel' and 'The Doctrines of the Gospel of the Grace of God' at www.godsonlygospel.com
The one thing that stands out like a sore thumb about all the lost is that they believe in a gospel that is not of God for they have a faith of which God is not the author. The faith they have is natural to man which is only susceptible to, and attracted by, the gospels of men. The principal evidence for a man having a faith that is not of God lies not only in the fact he does not believe the Gospel of God, but also that he has never turned away completely from false gospels, thus proving that he has never been led by God’s Spirit of Truth into all Truth, away from every false gospel to the only true Gospel of God, the one which says:
Man is dead in sin and cannot come to God in and of himself (Gen. 2:16,17; Matt. 19:25,26; Rom. 3:10,11; Eph. 2:1,12)
God chose a people for Himself before the foundation of the world. This election was obviously not based on anything they did for the world had not yet even been made, let alone man. Nor was election based on anything God's people would do for Scripture says that election was based solely upon God's will, wisdom, grace and mercy according to His purpose ( Rom. 9:11-18; 11:5,6; Eph. 1:3-6; 2 Tim. 1:9)
Christ Jesus, the Risen, was sent to the earth to establish a perfect Righteousness by obeying the law, and dying, for those people God had chosen and entrusted to Christ’s care (Jn. 10:27,28; 17:2,3; Eph. 5:25)
Their sins would be charged to Him and His Righteousness to them, thus making them wholly and forever acceptable unto God. Made perfect by His Sacrifice (2 Cor. 5:21; Eph. 5:2; Heb. 10:14)
All these people do/will believe His Gospel and be saved, for this is the will of God, and none of them will ever perish for they have all been given eternal life (Jn. 10:26-29; 17:2).
Why does God give His Faith to a man? So that he will believe that which is God’s only Gospel so much so that he will forever reject every other gospel he ever believed in as having any power to save.
This author is fully aware that a person's spiritual beliefs is an extraordinarily sensitive issue, particularly for those whose entire culture is built around religious tradition, but the Truth of God will not allow that sensitivity to stand in its way. However sensitive people are about their personal religious beliefs, when it comes to Who the True God is and Who His True and only Son is and what they did to save their people from their sins, when it comes to the matter of salvation and damnation, Truth overrides sensitivity. The True Gospel of God must always be preached to every creature. The Truth of God will not, indeed MUST NOT, be silenced no matter who or how many take offence at it.
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ" (Colossians 2:8).
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness" (2 Timothy 2:15,16).
"For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?" (1 Peter 4:17).
"Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?" (Galatians 4:16)
REPENT AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL OF GOD
