“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – which is really not gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!
Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:3-10).
There are many false teachers in the world today who would, consciously or unconsciously, astray from the truth of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many perversions of the gospel are in the world. Here we receive a firm warning – do not believe it! The gospel of Christ’s blood, death, resurrection and ascension is truth and life. Do not be led astray by those who do not believe and those who do not know truth from untruth.
If you do not know what the true gospel is, open the Word of God and read it for yourself. There are far too many people out there who talk about some things that Jesus said or did, but really they do not know anything about these things. A lot is hearsay from other people who do not know. Other things are based on misunderstanding. But the Word of God is truth and sets the record straight once for all. Read for yourself this gospel that was preached and received from the beginning. Take heed the warning against false teachers and false gospels. Do not believe them. Again, heed the words of the Lord Jesus: “Trust in God; trust also in me” (John 14:1).
