False Humanistic Gospel spreading through MOST churches TODAY is dangerous & deadly..

 

Identity/humanism false gospel...

MANY false prophets will come in sheep’s clothing.... this means they will look and sound right. They will perform signs winders, healing, cast out devils, prophecy ALL in Jesus name and call Him Lord!!!! BUT by their fruit you will recognise them. Obviously the fruit is not the above mentioned, but rather Jesus tells us they are rejected into His Kingdom because they donot obey His commandments and are not subject to His laws and did not live in obedience unto his Word and commands. Sure they heard, received, believed BUT did not obey!.... “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. I Never Knew You “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:15-23


The New Testament gospel is not an attempt to improve people at all, but to kill them! To bring them to the place where they recognize that there’s nothing they can ever do to be acceptable to God, and that all their best attempts at it are like dressing themselves up in filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). Only when they come to see their total inability, their wretchedness and hopeless estate, can they embrace the true gospel which calls them to die to all their own human (sinful) efforts, and trust completely in Jesus Christ. He alone is God’s provision to save us, and we can add nothing to His accomplishments for us.... then and only then after a heart is humbled in repentance and contrition understanding mans true position condemned in our sin and awaiting Gods fierce judgement and wrath will we cry out for mercy, pardon and forgives and THEN be truly born again and recreated as true sons and daughters, filled with His Spirit and radically changed to receive God’s amazing love and favour and be partakers Of His Devine nature in intimacy of restored relationship and acceptance to God! We have to stop being so seeker friendly, non offensive, politically correct man pleasers with giving people what they want, and come back to our calling which is to proclaim the gospel that people need. The church (and her ministers) is meant to be a prophetic voice that confronts, challenges and leads the culture. Instead, we have settled for being a mere echo of our culture — and all too often a mediocre one at that. But rather to preach the full gospel that can save !!!! The gospel that causes men to stumble. The Gospel that truly slays people in their sin until they cry out mercy, “my God have mercy on me a sinner” Then and only then will there be a true conversion, repentance, salvation and acceptance into the father arms, love, heart and Kingdom !! The Gospel of Humanism An article by Andrew Strom. What is Humanism? It is all around us. It is the dominant spiritual creed of much of Western society today. It is rampant in the media, education, medicine – everywhere. And sadly it has infiltrated the church in a huge way in recent years. In Humanistic thinking, MAN is the center of all things rather than God. Everything revolves around making MAN happy. To talk about “SIN” makes people feel unhappy and guilty – therefore it is ‘wrong’ to be so “judgemental” as to preach strongly against sin. Humanism is very tolerant. “They are not hurting anybody,” it says. “Let them do what they like.” In fact ‘TOLERANCE’ and the ‘HAPPINESS OF MAN’ are the great mantras of Humanism. So in what ways has this insidious philosophy invaded the church? Well, whenever you hear an evangelist sounding like a television commercial, then you are witnessing the invasion of Humanism. You will hear them say things like, “God wants to give YOU an exciting life. God wants to bless YOU. God wants to take away all your hurts and give you a happy life.” – Now of course there is truth in this. But what has happened here is that the EMPHASIS has shifted from “salvation from sin and judgement” to ‘God wants to make you happy and blessed.’ The focus is no longer on the fact that our sins offend a holy God, and that the CROSS is our only remedy. Rather, the message becomes more of a ‘toothpaste commercial’ – using Jesus as a means to have a happy and successful lifestyle. He becomes simply a means to our own selfish ends. It becomes all about “What can I get out of it?” As the advertising industry has learned, there is a lot of money and success to be found in “eliminating the negative” and stressing only the positive and happy things. And a lot of preachers today seem to simply go along with this Humanistic tide – preaching mainly “blessings and grace” and forgetting about conviction of sin and ‘taking up the cross’. – For we wouldn’t want to “offend” anybody, would we? But this is not what Jesus or the apostles were like. They preached ‘sin, righteousness and judgement’ in a very direct and piercing way. Often it is quite clear that their hearers were greatly offended – just as with the prophets of old. They preached real Repentance, ‘counting the cost’ and the loss of all things. But in many churches today that kind of talk would get you “never invited back”. And thus they become ripe for deception. God is not primarily concerned with man’s happiness. He is more concerned with our HOLINESS. But for many preachers, “Grace and Blessings” have become the recipes for success. And many are now treading that wide and seductive path. Quite a few of them have even learned how to raise their voice in such a way that you THINK they are preaching powerfully and challengingly. But when you actually examine what they are saying, it is usually more of the ‘blessings and excitement’ formula – simply ratcheted up a notch. And sadly, the church that feeds on such a “sugar and junk-food” diet will very quickly become utterly ‘fat’ and lukewarm.

 

I am very concerned with a “God loves and accepts you” message that does not preach a full council and gospel of the requirements for salvation and how to be benefactors and receivers of Gods love .... This is a dangerous deceiving non representation of Gods whole council to man and what must be done to attract His love, favour and salvation!!! Just because He offers man His underserved love, does NOT automatically QUALIFY US for His salvation. ..... John 14:21 "The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who really loves Me; and whoever really loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and will show reveal, manifest Myself to him. I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him. " Romans 11:22 Then appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: to those who fell into spiritual ruin, severity, but to you, God’s gracious kindness—if you continue in His kindness by faith and obedience to Him; otherwise you too will be cut off..

 

Gods Word says “our righteousness is as filthy rags “ WE MUST preach heaven and hell, the kindness and severity of God, “the wages of sin is death and Hell AND the gift of God is eternal life to those who believe (and ALL that belief includes repentance, contrition humility and obedience) “.... BOTH must be preached .....All I Hear is only God loves you as you are and you are valuable to Him . There is no repentance, wrath, judgement or fear of God preached .... Do you too REALLY disagree with what Jesus Himself preached and commanded the disciples to preach “repent for the kingdom of God ( His judgement and rule) is near, turn from your sins!!! Yes, God do loved the world He gave His only son to rescue us from being condemned by sin BUT if we do not repent, we remain condemned. I am Simply balancing the false gospel preached today of humanism and speaking ONLY the value of man and how God loves him WITHOUT a call to repentance and contrition! We must preach true repentance and Gods love!!! Ezekiel 3:18 "When I say to the wicked, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.” 2 Peter 2:9 “then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,” Proverbs 17:15 “He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD” Proverbs 10:16 “The wages of the righteous is life, The income of the wicked, punishment.” This is the message Jesus preached ... Matthew 25:41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;”

 


The prodigal son did not come to his senses and repentance by realising his “ value and worth or heritage “ no no no BUT opposite!!! He was humbled, broken , Sorry, repentant, contrite and come back not even expecting or asking to be his Fathers son BUT a simple servant !!! Opposite to the Gospel I hear “the cross is not about my sin but about my value”

 

When our children are disobedience, disrespectful and sinful It is our responsibility to discipline them and tell them their actions and behaviour is unacceptable and will be punished THEN we take them in our arms and tell them we love them and seek the best for them only !!! And because of this we obey God’s Word “spare the rod, spoil the child” I donot want my children to grow up rebellious, selfish brats , undisciplined and ungodly!! That’s LOVE ..... not telling a sinner how precious they are and valuable and we love them no matter what with no accountability or consequences to their lifestyle, behaviour and actions!! That is NOT the gospel !!! And in fact is worse than saying nothing!!! Ezekiel 3:18 "When I say to the wicked, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.”

 

Gods love is NOT unconditional as so many falsely declare....... Sure His love was unconditionally given to the world and all in it BUT to receive it and walk in it and know the benefits of it, we must receive it through repentance, faith, obedience and humility .... Paul's says "May our hearts be directed into the love of God" James says "keep yourself in the love of God" Jesus said "its those who obey my commands who I love and who my father and I will reveal ourselves unto intimately " John 14:21 "The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who really loves Me; and whoever really loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and will show reveal, manifest Myself to him. I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him. " Unconditional love of God Jesus said "remain in my love !.. If you obey my commandments you will remain in my love!" Jude says "keep yourself in the love of God" Let's not get confused with the fact God offers His love to the whole world and receiving His love and the benefits of His love, for if we are to experience and receive and walk in His love then we must humble ourselves and obey Him according to His Word .... To remain and keep ourselves in His love!!! The murderer or rapist is NOT living in or Knowing Gods love .... We must, as with all the other promises in Gods Word obey and have faith to inherit and walk in them to receive them... To say His love is unconditional is unbiblical as it is NOT found anywhere in His Word and has been another teaching made up to make everyone think they are safe, even in sin !!!! Hell is full of men and women God LOVED (as He loved the whole world and died to redeem All mankind) BUT we DONOT revive salvation or benefits of His promises or love unless we obey Him through faith repentance and surrender !!! John 14:21 The person who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who really loves Me; and whoever really loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him I will make Myself real to him.” John 14:23-24 Jesus answered, “If anyone really loves Me, he will keep My word teaching; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our dwelling place with him. One who does not really love Me does not keep My words. And the word teaching which you hear is not Mine, but is the Father’s who sent Me. John 15:9-11 I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love and do not doubt My love for you. If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing. Jude 1:21 and keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously and looking forward to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ which will bring you to eternal life. Romans 11:22 Then appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: to those who fell into spiritual ruin, severity, but to you, God’s gracious kindness—if you continue in His kindness by faith and obedience to Him; otherwise you too will be cut off.. Psalm 25:10 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and steadfast love, even truth and faithfulness are they for those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

 

True gospel Dear beloved .... There seems to be some great great confusion as to what is the Gospel and requirements of salvation ! May I clarify a few points It is not enough to just believe in God (“For even the devils believe and tremble” James 2:19) Jesus also declared “few will be saved” 13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 Therefore it is imperative we hear, see and understand the requirements of salvation!! Because Peter declares ..... And if it is difficult for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the godless and the sinner? 1 Peter 4:18 And Paul declared the seriousness of walking in and confirming daily our salvation.... “Therefore, my dear friends, ....., work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12 Then Jesus declared His terms to follow Him... “Then he said to them all, “If anyone wants to follow after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me.” Luke 9:23 Jesus is our greatest example of what to preach and teach and He preached and commanded the disciples to go and preach ... “He also said to them, “This is what is written: The Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead the third day, and repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in his name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” Luke 24:46-47 One cannot truly believe unless he repents, and one cannot truly repent unless he believes. Repentance in truth to turn from sins with a heart of contrition is a MUST for salvation. For without repentance there is no forgiveness of sins. We are commanded to repent if we desire salvation! “God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him.” Acts 17:30 “Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.” Acts 3:19 “No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well!” Luke 13:3 “..... Perhaps God will grant them repentance leading them to the knowledge of the truth. Then they may come to their senses and escape the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.” 2 Timothy 2:25-26 Repentance is a life changing serious heart wrenching action that must be followed through and proven by action! “Therefore produce fruit consistent with repentance” Luke 3:8-14 “Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart [with remorse and anxiety], and they said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what are we to do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways, accept and follow Jesus as the Messiah] and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ because of the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. And Peter solemnly testified and continued to admonish and urge them with many more words, saying, “ Be saved from this crooked and unjust (perverse) generation!” Acts 2:37-38,40 There MUST be a real understanding and sorrow for sin that God requires. It is not adding Him or we donot “sell the benefits or just receive Jesus” NO!!! We must understand that without Him we are lost for eternity and have true Contrition in our hearts ... “For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.” 2 Corinthians 7:10 “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.” Psalm 51:17 "But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me, the sinner!' Luke 18:14 The false Gospel we hear today is based in humanism and says “we are valuable to God and priceless to Him” Where God declares (Isaiah) “For we all have become like one who is [ceremonially] unclean [like a leper], And all our deeds of righteousness are like filthy rags; We all wither and decay like a leaf, And our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing], like the wind, takes us away [carrying us far from God’s favor, toward destruction].” Isaiah 64:6 Even Paul declares under the law and before He was saved.... Wretched and miserable man that I am! Who will [rescue me and] set me free from this body of death [this corrupt, mortal existence]? Thanks be to God [for my deliverance] through Jesus Christ our Lord! Romans 7:24-25 YES God does love us so much then He made a way to rescue us NOT because we are valuable BUT because He lives us . This is true love, grace and mercy!! Nothing to do with what we deserve !!! LETS GET THIS STRAIGHT !!!
