There are people walking the streets worldwide offering what they say is the correct gospel.
But most of these gospels being offered are different so they cannot be all working for God.
They come from many different denominations who do not accept that others offer truth.
Does it matter? Yes because if they are offering falsehood they are offering death, not life.
And the people they offer them to may be disillusioned and never trust our loving God again.
They may be among those travelling over land and sea to make proselytes more fit for Gehenna.
We are warned about false prophets, false Christs, false gospels and powerless human religion.
The best choice is not to listen to the world’s denominations but to go back to the revelation of God.
Read what Peter taught in Acts 2 and follow the evangelists who we can trust by reading the whole of Acts.
Along with the words of Jesus Christ in Jn 3 we can read how God built His Church.
You will not find the popular false gospels such as GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST , BELIEVE AND YOU ARE SAVED etc

Variations on the false gospel include:
Accepting Jesus as your saviour.
Inviting Jesus into your heart.
Claming Jesus as your Lord.
Follow scripture and not men.April 19, 2018 at 3:34 pm #822368
Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge, you yourselves did not enter, and you hindered those who were entering.
Woe to you, scribes and pharisees, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
So those who preach the gospel must first enter the kingdom themselves, according to the teaching of Jesus and Peter, including offering them an opportunity to be given share the key of knowledge, the Holy Spirit.

And when they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they found a magician, a Jewish false prophet whose name was Bar-Jesus, Who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence. This man summoned Paul and sought to hear the word of God. But Elymas the magician( for so his name is translated) was opposing them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. But Saul, who was also known as Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze on him, and said
’You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord.?Now, Behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and not see the sun for a time’
And immediately a mist and a darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking those who would lead him by the hand, then the proconsul believed when he saw what had happened, being amazed at the teaching of the Lord.
If you preach the word expect some serious opposition.
Paul, like Jesus, worked in the power of the Spirit.
The teaching is of the Lord and not of man.April 27, 2018 at 9:03 am #822744GeneBalthropParticipant
