The False Gospel - The Additions
In the previous article, The False Gospel – The Subtractions, it was revealed that the modern church proclaims a me-centred gospel that puts man in control with a 'Jesus' that conforms to what man wants; therefore, they subtract from the conditions of salvation to appeal inclusively to everyone. This article will reveal the additions that have been added to the true Gospel of Christ, which makes it a bastardized gospel that is an abomination to God.
Addition of a 'Personal Saviour'
When man takes the helm instead of Christ, they attempt to become the Saviour instead. They offer a personal Saviour that serves their own needs. Accepting is simply acknowledging that Christ died on the cross for them. That’s about it. This means that you now considered a ‘believer’ and Christ is now your personal Saviour who is under your control of what you want him to do for you.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit - John 15:16
- We are to follow Christ, not just accept him.
- We are to conform to Christ, not the other way around.
- We are called to a locality, not isolation within a religious building.
- We are called to serve, not to be served.
- We are not saved just for ourselves.
The concept of accepting Christ as your personal Saviour is not found anywhere in Scripture. In the church system, it is on the extensive menu items that is offered when you make a decision to become a member of organized religion. You become an official tithing club member immediately upon ‘accepting the Lord,’ and assured that they you are saved without even having to deal with your own sins. You are supposedly saved, even though you continue to walk in disobedience. All you have to do is accept what man is doing and all will be okay, if not, there is an extensive menu of options in some other institutional church building somewhere else.
The Addition of 'God’s Favourites'
The counterfeit Gospel makes God have personal favourites. The god of their making is more partial to people who embellish their self-interests by exalting themselves in their titles, prosperity, social status and achievements. Every church has their group who are considered the celebrities and the groupies that fawn over them. They are the rock-stars of the Gospel of their own making.
The Addition of the 'Altar Call'
The altar call is always a crowd pleasing technique used to manipulate the masses. It can be used in many different ways to coerce, extort, blackmail and intimidate. If you don’t walk down the aisle or come forward, then you are not accepted as a genuine member of organized religion. The reality is, the altar call is not found as a practice among the early ekklesia in the New Testament anywhere.
The Addition of the 'Sinner’s Prayer'
The pulpiteers of spiritual Babylon preach about all the prosperity and blessing you will receive when you accept their Christ as your own personal Saviour at the altar call. Once you walk down the aisle and kneel at the feet of one of the esteemed salaried clergy, you will be asked to recite the sinner’s prayer. This canned prayer is parroted word-for-word as your personal salvation prayer.
The scripted words of the sinner’s prayer do not reflect the individual, nor are they the words of the person either. It is a pre-packaged ritual that is recited to get something out of God. These people become parrots at the altar of man voiding the work of the Holy Spirit.
All those who partake in this canned declaration at the altars of men often walk away with unconfessed sin and open themselves up to the condemnation of Satan that is meant to continually oppress them. They do not grow, but actually digress into an illusion that they have achieved salvation. The fact is, they have not even started their walk with Christ. They just have entered into a four-walled social club that promotes self and salvation through carnal means instead of allowing the Holy Spirit reveal their sin. An appointed salaried membership specialist upon the podium leads them right into the oppression of spiritual Babylon through his sophistry.
Without confession, there is no cooperation with the spirit of Truth that works in each individual. It is not through some prepackaged canned tradition. The sinner’s prayer script is nowhere to be found in the activities of the early ekklesia.
The sinner’s prayer is a man-made device that is a fraudulent practice to control others. It is not the road to life, but one that leads into spiritual manipulation and control by bowing down in front of professional clergy who want you to accept them as the mediators between you and God.
The true Gospel is an admission and confession of our own sin and disobedience towards God. By His grace, we are then able to follow the call that Christ has given us to expand the Kingdom of God.
The Addition of 'Works'
The peddled Gospel of the the church system is a counterfeit scam and an easy ticket to salvation. It is a wasteland of empty promises and spiritual foods devoid of any sustenance. It is a works based salvation that says if you keep going to church, revival meetings, conferences, seminars, prayer meetings, and also purchase books, CD’s and DVD’s, you will prosper and receive many blessings.
The sheeple become deluded indoctrinated drones who are zealous for the next quick-fix striving for what they can do for themselves instead of allowing the Holy Spirit to do the work of what Christ has done. The counterfeit Gospel makes people into failures and the products of disillusionment and bitterness towards the Christ of the genuine Gospel.
The Addition of Abominations
The true Gospel has become a backdrop to the addition of abominable practices that merchandise the things of God through rituals and traditions that He has clearly forbidden in Scripture. The modern Gospel condones occult and pagan practices with open displays of witchcraft called movements of the Holy Spirit. These practices are redefined and redeemed through religious lingo. Their made-to-order Jesus is actually Satan who is eager to customize the Gospel anyway that they see fit by making them feel comfortable in their own sin.
Counterfeit Christianity is a dark and idolatrous group of people who refuse to give up their beloved traditions. They set up their icons, idols and symbols in their churches and in their homes ignorantly giving homage to Satan in the name of Jesus. They have not dealt with their unrepentant flesh; therefore, they continue to embellish their traditions and persecute those who stand on the spirit of Truth in all that they do.
The false Gospel tolerates what God considers an abomination and attempts to mix the holy and profane with uncleanliness and idolatry.
The true Gospel is about purity, holiness, righteousness and singular worship to the one true God.
Addition of Marketing Techniques
The message of the true Gospel is a narrow road that gives no credence to the commercial merchandised religious products of the world and their producers. The mass-marketing efforts of the church system affirms the sales tactics and methods of the world. They say that it is okay to practice these methods and call it the Gospel. T-shirts, bumper stickers, bracelets, special clothing, toys, symbols, signs, titles and labels are created to flaunt their own versions of the Gospel. The fact is, all these things are tools of manipulation into accepting their brand of personal Saviour.
The challenge to those who buy into all of this stuff is, where do you find these things in Scripture?
The Addition of Follow Ups
People are being manipulated into attending a canned meeting in a building being pressured to go down the aisle to an alter call, recite the sinner’s prayer and accept Jesus as their personal Saviour.
Additionally, they are stalked with a follow-up to be coerced into continually coming to their pre-orchestrated man-driven meetings because those who run churches see the convert as an investment product. They know how to get people hopped up on their versions of the Gospel till they empty their purses and wallets into their coffers. They love to hand out glossy pamphlets full of specially designed words and symbols to instruct and guide people every step of the way right into kingdoms of their own making. It is making sure that their spiritual abortion was a success. They now own a new captive dead soul enslaved in spiritual Babylon ruled by the prince of darkness.
The soul winning tools are an up-sell of their imitation Gospel. Lies are promoted as truth with each denomination convinced that they are the owners of the truth. This is the biggest con of the church system that coerces people to accept their brand of Gospel. They make a complete mockery of Christ and what He has done with their man-made substitutions. These grotesque versions keep people slaves to their fleshly appetites ignorant to the fact that they are still lost in their traditions.
It may be a shock that most of what is called church and what is called the Gospel is an abysmal knock-off of the real thing. All the zeal, hustle and bustle of those who proclaim Christ are all in vain. They have been conditioned into drinking the Kool-Aid of instant salvation. The drink is a short-lived sugar high that leaves those who consume it craving for their next fix. They have no idea what it is like to drink from the fountain of life.
Many fail to understand that we have no right to pronounce salvation upon anyone. By doing so, it is man giving assurance to man. Man gives themselves the authority of Christ and put themselves on the throne of judgement.
It is Christ who will be at the judgement seat and say, ‘I never knew you’ to those who were deluded into believing that there was assurance in their own created versions of the Gospel.
Stop Playing the Church Game
This is a message to all those who are playing the church game. It is time to leave the ploys of Satan and his minions and come out of religious bondage. Run from all the noise and confusion and listen to the call of God through conviction of the Holy Spirit. Time is running out. Turn from the corruption while there is still enough time to make it into the Kingdom of God.
The antichrist kingdom is a system with roots that run very deep. Only discernment from the Holy Spirit will expose the counterfeit for what it is. Many have been deceptively grafted into the harlot church system. The original disciples constantly warned of these things.
It is only the Holy Spirit that can speak to our hearts giving us strength through the grace of Christ to be separated from the harlot church system and be made into living stones for the building of God’s kingdom. All the work and effort in the man-driven church system is a complete waste of time, energy and resources because it has a defiled purpose. The harlot is a prideful and relentless prostitute mocking the genuine Gospel by posing as a pure bride offered to a bloodless Christ.
The harlot and all her converts are seduced men and woman who desire to have their ears tickled in a spiritual brothel of excitement, entertainment, pleasure and gratification.
We must return to the true unadulterated Gospel before it is too late. Time is running out. We need to repent of our fornication with her.
The true Gospel is not about an extensive menu of endless options that caters to everybody’s flavours and appetites. It is an exclusive message that preaches and proclaims the plan of Christ. The window of opportunity is winding down. Many are duped into believing that the broad road is the narrow one. Don’t be deceived.
Waking up requires that we humble ourselves to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Christ is not calling us to a building, but to a quiet place to hear him. Come out of her and meet the true Teacher who will be the lamp unto your feet and the light to your path.
Does the Church you represent add to the true Gospel?
- The Bastardized Gospel - The Subtractions
The “gospel” of the modern church is only bits and pieces of the pure Gospel, which miss many of the key components to the original Gospel that that was given through Jesus Christ and the Apostles.
- The Gospel is Not About What You Do
There is a problem when acts of kindness are equated as being true Gospel. Many believe that being a friend to someone and being kind to lost people is the Gospel.
