Romans 16:17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”
Tragically, because of a woeful lack of preaching against sin in churches today, a false social Gospel has emerged in recent decades. This is the pseudo-Gospel of imposters like Martin Luther King Jr., who openly denied the deity of Jesus. And yet to this day people refer to Mr. King as the “Reverend.” What a farce! Another fake preacher is Jesse Jackson. I triple-dog dare you to search the internet to find out what Jesse Jackson believes about Jesus Christ theologically. Good luck! You won't find his Christian testimony anywhere, about how he came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Something is very wrong folks!
These infidels merely get ordained and use the title of “Baptist minister” to open doors, for prestige and influence, and not for the cause of Jesus Christ. Jesse Jackson couldn't care less if you get saved or go to Hell forever. I seriously doubt if he is a true believer himself! We know for a face, according to his own writings which deny Jesus' virgin birth, deity and bodily resurrection, that Martin Luther King Jr. was not a born-again believer. Unless Mr. King repented on his death bed of his unbelief, the Bible says he went to Hell forever (1st John 2:22-23; Revelation 20:12-15). I say these things kindly with love, not hatred. Jesus made it very clear in John chapter three that in order to enter into the Kingdom of God, “Ye must be born again” (John 3:7b).
I read in the newspaper years ago about a man who literally sent in $10 to have his pet dog ordained as a Baptist minister. Sure enough, the ordination credentials came in the mail a couple weeks later. I think the title “Reverend Rover” kind of has a ring to it, huh? The ridiculous neo-evangelical movement today propagates a shallow ecumenical message of love, compromise and unity above all else, uniting in sinful compromise and apostasy. Check out how insane Pastor Paul White has become! Instead of dividing over truth as the Bible commands, they unite in error in sinful compromise with unbelievers. This is the Rick Warren, Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen crowd. Their remedy for humanity is a false social Gospel that simply requires a person to follow the teachings of Jesus.
Today's unsaved religious crowd are woefully ignorant of truth. 2nd Timothy 2:25, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.” Repentance is “a change of mind” (Greek: metanoia). It is a change of mind from unbelief to BELIEVING. The verb form of the word "repent" is metanoia is metanoeo, which means, “to think differently.” Acts 20:21 speaks of “repentance toward God.” Notice the words “TOWARD GOD”"!
As we just read in 2nd Timothy 2:25, repentance is changing one's mind to acknowledge “THE TRUTH.” What truth? Of course, the truth of the Gospel. A social Gospel has “a form of godliness,” but “denying” the saving-power of the Gospel (2nd Timothy 3:5). In a social Gospel there is no faith in the Gospel. There is no remission of sins. There is no cleansing blood of Jesus. This is why 18% of the Unitarian Universalist churches' members are Atheists! This is the corrupt fruit of a social Gospel.
The SIMPLICITY of the Gospel has been corrupted, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” It is simple to be saved by trusting upon the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ; but it is absolutely essential for that person to come to Jesus on the basis of being a guilty sinner. God saves sinners who helplessly trust upon the Savior, not the self-righteous who trust in the arm of man to get them to Heaven. Man has no part of God's salvation. Eternal life is free and clear, paid in full, a gift waiting to be accepted by faith in the Gospel. Just believe and the work is done. John 6:29, “Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” John 6:29 speaks of “the work of God,” and not a self-righteous work of man.
God pity the preacher that the world don't hate! I wouldn't give you a dime for all these worldly preachers today like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others, who merely preach a social gospel of racial equality, gender inclusion, wokeness and giving diehard support for their favorite Democratic candidates for political office. Yet, no one ever gets born-again. These are Baptist pastors? Really? Remember, the Bible warns in 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15 that the Devil himself is transformed into an angel of light to deceive his victims, and his ministers also are transformed (actors) into ministers of righteousness to deceive. Please don't allow them to deceive you. Tell them that you are NOT FOR SALE!!!
