The Truth Shall Make You Free Part II

Since the Bible is clear on the WHOSOEVER will and the ALL of who can accept Christ, let's talk about that false teacher who promotes anything other than the true gospel of Christ.

A doctrine that teaches God has chosen some of us for Heaven and the rest of us for Hell is a lie and nothing but religious rhetoric and heresy.

Jeremiah, speaking to Hananiah the prophet, in Jeremiah 28:15 said, "The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie."

Anyone who promotes this type of doctrine is deceived and those who preach it are liars.  Plain and simple.  Their gospel is a gospel of man.  Not the gospel of Christ.  Jesus said that He came to SEEK and to SAVE that which was lost and that WHOSOEVER called upon His name would be saved.  Anything contrary to that is a lie.

People who teach anything other than the TRUE gospel of Christ are grace perverters.

Galatians 1:6-8 says, "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.  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach ANY OTHER GOSPEL unto you than that which we have preached unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED"

Accursed?  That means let him be under a curse. Let him be condemned.  They take grace and make it only for themselves.  It is a selfish gospel of man.  An arrogant gospel of man.

People who teach anything other than the TRUE gospel of Christ are truth resisters.

II Timothy 3:8 says, "Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of CORRUPT MINDS, REPROBATE concerning the faith.

Jannes and Jambres were the magicians who stood against Moses when he approached Pharaoh to let God's people go.  Of course, we know the outcome of that.

In this verse, Timothy is comparing those who speak against the truth to those magicians.  They are of corrupt minds.  That means they're dishonest.  Well yeah.  They're speaking a false doctrine.  They are of a reprobate mind.  Anywhere in the Bible  you see the word reprobate,  you can know it means this: bad, corrupt, degenerate, immoral, foul, wanton, improper, incorrigible, lewd, rude, sinful, unprincipled, vile, and wicked. 
Anyone preaching anything other than the TRUE gospel of Christ are these things. 

People who teach anything other the TRUE gospel of Christ are destitute of truth.

I Timothy 6:3-5 says, "If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is PROUD, KNOWING NOTHING, but donting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and DESTITUTE OF THE TRUTH, supposing that gain is godliness: *FROM SUCH, WITHDRAW THYSELF.*"

To withdraw ourselves from these people that preach another gospel is to stay away from them.  We're to have nothing to do with them.  We don't promote them, we don't read books they've written, we don't watch videos of them on youtube, we LEAVE THEM ALONE!  The reason it's necessary for us to do that is because no matter how well we THINK we know the Bible, the more we have fellowship with lies, the more we begin to believe them.  God knows that.  That's why we're told to withdraw ourselves from them.  Also, to protect our reputation and the truth of the TRUE gospel of Christ, we need not to associate ourselves with those who preach a lie.

Ephesians 4:14 says, "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; BUT speaking the truth in love, many grow up into HIM in all things, WHICH IS THE HEAD, even CHRIST:" 

We need to stay focused on the true gospel of Christ.  We need to take our eyes off man and his teachings and get our eyes on Christ and HIS teachings. 

The gospel of Christ says that a holy sinless God was birthed from a virgin, lived a holy and sinless life on this earth, died the death of a guilty man, even though He was perfectly innocent, rose again the third day, and ascended into Heaven where He awaits The Father to tell Him to come back and catch His bride away.  The gospel of Christ says that WHOSOEVER believes this and calls on Him and accepts Him as their Savior can and will go to Heaven. 

If God had chosen beforehand who goes to Heaven and who goes to Hell, then what would be the point of leaving the Holy Spirit here on earth to woo and draw us unto Him?  What would be the point of suffering on the cross?  What would be the point of any of it?

Christ came for the WHOSOEVER will.  That included me.  And that includes you too!
