THE TRUE CHURCH: Jesus Christ And Him Crucified


But [now] I am fearful, lest that even as the serpent beguiled Eve by his cunning, so your minds may be corrupted and seduced from wholehearted and sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
For [you seem readily to endure it] if a man comes and preaches another Jesus than the One we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the [Spirit] you [once] received or a different gospel from the one you [then] received and welcomed; you tolerate [all that] well enough!  
[2 Corinthians 11: 3-4] The Amplified Bible 
The Gospel, for the most part, is so easy to understand. I got the message when I was just a little boy, although it was years later that I excepted Jesus as my Savior. There is nothing hard to understand about the Gospel. It is the Blood of Jesus Christ and Him being crucified on the cross, that is the true Gospel. There, brothers and sisters, is were the faith of all Christians lays, at the Foot of the Old Rugged Cross. There is the foundation of Christianity! The Cross!

We can read in Paul's Epistles where some of the preachers of his day (the Jewish priest) who, said that Jesus was the Messiah, the Savior of the world, but also wanted to make other conditions for people to be saved. They wanted the Gentiles to keep the law as part of being saved. They were allowing another spirit to sneak into the church. Down through the years since then it has been the same thing in a lot of churches it is always Jesus and some other requirement to be saved. This should have never happened. It is only happening because Satan is using weak kneed and dollar seeking preachers to preach another gospel to the people.

 People for years have tried to twist the true Gospel of our Lord. They are like the Jews in Jesus' day. They keep adding on different things and requirements to be saved. This should never be! We have preachers today, in the church, that preach a different Gospel that I never knew and all for their own benefit. The prosperity message is a good one to use as an example. Years ago there was a preacher who preached a prosperity message and it always included the following words: "Get your pie in the sky." Needless to say, he had a big following, but you never heard about the finished work of our Lord, Jesus Christ. In other words he was preaching a different Gospel. Although we do not hear about "pie in the sky" anymore, we still have preachers who still preach that same message which is another Jesus. Religious men are always coming up with a new scheme to put out to the church and carnal people will always go for it.

Sad to say, but what is being preached on most churches in America today is "another gospel". It is not the one that I heard when growing up. As I get older I see clearly what is happening and it is scary. It use to be when a person was saved they realized they were a sinner in need of a Savior, they expressed a Godly sorrow, repented of their sins and asked for forgiveness. Now there is a doctrine going around in a lot of churches were people "Have made a commitment to do better." That is not Bible salvation. People by the thousands are going to these kind of churches. A person can be committed to Christ, but he has to be saved from his sins first.

We, now, have churches all over this land that has brought a new gospel in the doors and into the pulpit and the pews. It is called "Chrislam" which is no gospel at all. A religion of hate and a religion of love cannot and do not worship the same god. Bitter and sweet water do not run from the same fountain, Can two walk together if they do not agree?  But yet church leaders are welcoming it with open arms. They are allowing another spirit to sneak into the church. It is the spirit of the anti-christ that has already come into this world.

How many churches in America can say, today: "Inside this church, silver and gold  have we none, but such as we have we give to you. Not many that is for sure. The church of our Lord should be a place where the sick come to be healed,  a place where a person can come to and when they leave they can say: "I was lost but now I'm found, I was blind but now I see. Now in the most of our churches we have signs out front that say anything but that!  Fried chicken dinners, garage sales, Rock concert, Chrislam here, and many other things. All theses things will not draw one person to Christ. It is the anointed word of God that does the work. It is The Holy Spirit that draws a person to the Lord and nothing else.That is the true drawing power, not these other things.

There is a saying going around the internet: "Lets take our country back!" But I say unto you: "LETS TAKE OUR CHURCHES BACK AND OUR COUNTRY WILL FOLLOW!"
