Another Gospel

In John 17:17 we find the basis for believing the Bible. There we
read  the  words  of  Jesus "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy
word  is  truth."  We  can  believe the Bible because it is true.
Therefore anything concerning God and religion in general that is
not  found within the pages of the Bible is therefore false. This
is  exactly  the point that Paul is making in Galatians 1:6-7. By
inspiration  of  God,  Paul  writes that "I marvel that ye are so
soon  removed  from  him that called you into the grace of Christ
unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that
trouble  you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ." There were
apparently  opponents of Christ that were subverting the faith of
the  disciples  by  declaring  something  to  be from God when it
really wasn't.

This  kind  of  thing is still happening today. Men and women who
proclaim  to  speak  the  word  of  God  are  really  speaking  a
"perversion"  of  it. Things like saved by faith only, saying the
"sinner's  prayer",  speaking  in  tongues, and even names people
give    to  their  churches  (Baptist,  Catholic,  Methodist  and
Presbyterian  to  name  a  few)  are  things not found in the New
Testament.  Since  the  Old  Testament has been done away with in
Christ  (Col.  2:14,  Gal.  3:24-25,  Romans 6:14) even those who
believe  we are to follow the Ten Commandments are perverting the
true  gospel of Christ. There is only one place to find the truth
about  God  and  faith.  That  place is the Bible. It is the only
place to find the words of truth.

In Christ, Steve Preston
