OH FOOLISH (fill in the blank), WHO HAS BEWITCHED YOU?”

This comes from Paul’s letter to the Galatians who Paul was trying to awaken from a spell of salvation by works that had been cast over them. After telling the Galatians in ch.1 that whoever would bring them a gospel that was a perversion of the gospel Paul had already preached to them is accursed. And in ch.2 telling them that justification, which is righteousness, only comes “by the faith of Christ” and not by works of the law. Paul asks them in ch.3, “who has bewitched you?… This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?…. Having begun in the spirit are you now made perfect by the flesh?” This is Paul’s message of shaking throughout this letter. The message that justification which is righteousness…

THE GOSPEL OF: GOD, JESUS, THE ATONEMENT, RIGHTEOUSNESS, JUDGMENT,…..

Edward: Gospel means good news. And it is the good news. It can be good news about pretty much anything. But, the gospel that is found in the Bible is that which describes for us who God is. Who Jesus is. And what the atonement is for. And how these have provided deliverance from the mortality that causes men to seek God. To eternal life for all who will believe in the Biblical Jesus.  The new believer is not going to know immediately every detail about this gospel. None of us will ever know all that is to be known about the gospel while we see through the dark glasses of these mortal minds. But, he will know that Jesus loves him. And will learn more and more about His love and what God has done for him because of His…

Watchman: Daily Devotional, Reject the Gospel as False. Unbelievers Reject the Good News That All Sinners Can Be Saved Through Faith in Jesus Christ. Atheists Have No Faith Because They Reject the Bible as God’s Inspired and Authoritative Word

Daily Devotional: You will also notice that a major characteristic of nonbelievers is a hatred of the truth and wisdom found in God’s word. Those who reject the Bible’s claims are more likely to embrace the lies of the devil, which cater to their fallen nature, than they are to embrace the truth of God, which is revealed in the Bible. They readily accept the falsehoods of this world, which are unable to provide them with the eternal life their precious souls require. The truth of God’s word is offensive and painful to those who reject God. And Revelation 21:8 says that those who refuse to believe will be tossed in the fiery lake of fire with Satan and his angels. If you don’t believe in Jesus Christ and what He did for you on the cross, you’re already damned…

UNDERSTANDING GENESIS–The Lord God sent him forth from the garden…

I read a meme recently that made the claim that it was the gospel in a nutshell. It said God made it- Adam broke it- Jesus fixed it. If you believe this is the Genesis account in a nutshell then you do not know the first thing about the true and living God. His Son Jesus. Or what the atonement was for. In Rom.5:12,13 Paul tells us that when Adam sinned it brought sin into the world. Not all sin. Just his. And Paul also said this sin was not imputed to him or anyone else. This means that God did not hold this sin against Adam. So that he, nor anyone else for that matter, was not punished for it. So how could Adam be accused of breaking anything? And how can the rest of mankind be punished for…

Why Churches Are Choosing Pragmatism Over the Gospel

HNewsWire: Pragmatism is the practice of churches abandoning the gospel in order to appeal to people’s senses and bring them to the church for the wrong reasons. Pragmatism To appeal to people’s senses and bring them to the church for the wrong reasons, more and more churches are watering down or abandoning the gospel. It’s known as pragmatism. Pragmatism is similar to democracy. If the majority of people agree with it, it must be correct. Whatever works best is best for the people, yet we all know that a man’s methods seem correct in their own eyes, but we all know that this path leads to ruin (Prov 21:2). Pragmatism essentially argues that truth is optional and that popularity triumphs. Whatever the majority believes must be correct. Pragmatists in the church don’t want to hear sermons on hell or repentance…

DON’T BE SATAN CLAUS-ED BY THE PAGAN DOCTRINE OF ORIGINAL SIN!

Because Santa(satan) Claus Christianity can not save you. That’s the perversion the pagan doctrine of original sin has made of the gospel. Saying that just as Santa Claus watches and knows who is naughty or nice, so the false gospel message that salvation is based on whether one is good or bad has made God into Santa Claus by the charlatans that teach this garbage who claim to be Christians.  Think of it. Why do most people who say they are Christians believe Jesus needed to come? They say it’s because people are bad and need forgiveness for the bad things they have done so God will accept them, right? And that if they don’t get forgiveness from God for the bad things they have done, or have in their view inherited, they will get the proverbial lump of coal. Which means…

We Must Finish the Race Part of Being an Athlete Is Having

the ability to endure and not give in. We are saved by grace, through faith, and are eternally secure in Jesus’ hand (Ephesians 2:8–10; John 6:39–40). Yet we are also called to ” … work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure salvation” (Philippians 2:12–13). Salvation is a work of God, but it is a transformational work that ushers us into a new life in which we are called upon to stand firm and endure (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Corinthians 16:13). We remain faithful in the midst of trial (2 Timothy 3:12; 1 Peter 4:12–13; John 16:33). We stand against the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6:10–18; 1 John 3:16–18; 4:7–8). We battle against our own sinfulness (Galatians 5:1). We press on in doing good works out…

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT FOR SALE

When Jesus was on this earth preaching The Gospel, He showed us how to preach it. He neither made money with The Gospel nor ask/beg humanity for provision. See true servants of God do not ask/beg humanity for money and provision. If you are not preaching The Gospel Jesus way, you are not preaching His Gospel. All apostles and true servants of God in The Bible never made money with The Gospel neither ask/beg humanity for money and provision. Money and The Gospel of Jesus Christ do not go together. You will never see the power of The Holy Spirit where The Gospel is used to make money. You cannot love money and worldly riches and love God. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve money and God. Luke 16:13: No servant can serve two masters: for either he…
