TOPIC:  Beware Of These False Gospel

Read: Galatians 3:23– 4:7(NKJV)

STUDY: As the good news about Jesus began to be preached and welcomed among people who were not Jews, the question arose as to whether a person must obey the Law of Moses in order to be a true Christian. Apostle Paul, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, pointed out that this was not necessary.

According to him, the only basis to become a true Christian was faith by which all were put right with God (John 1:12-13). But among the churches of Galatia, there had come people who opposed Paul and claimed that one must also observe the Law of Moses in order to be in right standing with God.

Paul emphasized that with genuine faith in Christ Jesus, Christians are no longer slaves to Sin or Satan but are sons and daughters of God and heirs according to His promise (Gal. 3:26, 4:7). Beloved, beware that there are many false teachings today.

Some preachers project that once a person is saved, he is saved for ever. In other words, it does not matter how a person lives after his conversion, he has eternal security! This is not the truth of the Gospel. The Bible affirms that Christians should live to glorify God in all things. As a child of God, you must note that false teaching is either a reduction or overstretching of the truth and any teaching that does not promote the knowledge of Christ and the holiness of the Church as prescribed by the Holy Bible is not for you (1 Cor. 10:12; Heb. 12:14).

The scripture warns – “But know this that in the last days, perilous times will come for men shall be lovers of themselves … from such turn away” (1 Tim. 3:1-5). Beware of false teachers!

PRAYER: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world (1 John. 4:1).
