Exhortation Day 3

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to another gospel – not that there is one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the on  we preached to you, let him be accursed.  As we have said before, so now I say again If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed”  Gal. 1:6-9

There is no “Jesus and” if the ‘and’ is contrary to the gospel of Christ.

There is no “Jesus and” if the ‘and’ adds to the gospel of Christ because Christ said “it is finished” John 19:30.

We can only know if it is ‘contrary’ or ‘in additon to’ if we know the Gospel of Christ.

We identify Christ as the Messiah based on the fulfillment of Old Testament Prophecy. 

When you open a cookbook, you can pick and choose which recipes you like.  Each one is distinct from the other, a separate entity.

But the Bible is intertwined. One Book expounds on another.  One book explains another, one book confirms another. 

I am familiar with many false teachings that teach the ‘gospel of Christ -and’.  That ‘and’ is clearly contradictory to the Word.  You can’t believe both. 

Tune out the ‘and’ and tune in to God. 

 Read His Word.  Know His Word. Measure all teachings according to His Word.
