"We live in a country that exports the majority of the world's pornography, slaughters its unborn children, hands out grammy awards to devils, redefines marriage, uses education to teach that life is meaningless, pushes sex, drugs, violence, greed, deceit etc. And after 50 years of this mess you thought that you were going to get to vote for candidates with some type of conviction and integrity? It's not just our politicians who need to repent, it's America as a whole! Music: "Sin" by Ivey Conerly, Result and Shai Linne "

Acts 20:27 ""For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God."


Introduction

In light of Acts 20:27, Galatians 1:6-9 and 1 John 4:1, this article is a response to the website "Gospel Brew" and its counterfeit gospel(watered down/false gospel)  and its false belief that "Hell is generally a stumbling block to people believing in God".

Here is Gospel Brew's version of the gospel found here - http://www.gospelbrew.com.au/what-is-the-gospel/


"You might have heard of The Gospel before. “Oh yeah, the four gospels. Aren’t they in the Bible somewhere?” But the Gospel is so much more than a section in a book…

It’s the Good News, not the Good Advice.

The Gospel is simply “The Good News”. When we read or watch news – we understand that it’s news about someone else, and what happened to them or what they did. Sure, if we have a new Prime Minister, for instance – it effects us and we may want to change a few things, but we don’t have to do anything for the news to effect us. It already did. It’s effects are already in motion.Contrary to popular belief, the Gospel is not the good advice, the good commandments, or the good to do list. The Gospel is the good news of what God has done for us. If it were advice, or about what we had to do, or behave or achieve – it wouldn’t be news about what God did, it would be a good recipe book;
A cup of church, two prayers, a bible reading, a tablespoon of ‘lift your hands in worship’, 1/10 of a cup of tithe, some evangelism, a slice of service to God and don’t forget your journal – praise it together and bake in a passionately hot oven. Serve with other Christians. Be positive too. Don’t forget to believe for the impossible. And the five P’s of faith. The three T’s of generosity. The Seven W’s of influence. 
It ends up being exhausting and deflating… Sending groans through our being as we look at all the things we have to do in our already busy lives. This isn’t the life that was promised in the brochure, and it ends up being more like karma, than Christianity.

The man who broke ‘Karma’

You see, we understand karma because it makes sense. “If I do good things, I’ll be repaid with good things”. We assume, of course that the good we do will outweigh the bad and it’s consequences – so that makes us good right? Surely my charitable gifts and being a good friend and son or daughter outweigh my bad temper or my selfishness? Surely, the argument goes, I’ll be repaid for my good but my bad will just be forgotten about?
God says and shows us through Jesus, that sin is not simply an action. It’s not just the failure to do the right thing – or to do good when faced with needs or the evil of humanity. It’s a state of being – it’s in our thoughts, our hearts and penetrates us through and through. We squirm because God places the bar of “what is good” higher than Mother Theresa, higher than Ghandi. He places it at perfection. It’s a to do list impossible to fill, a karma bridge too far. A recipe not even the finest chef would be able to follow. It’s not polite nor popular to talk about how we are not as good as we think we are; it’s rather awkward in fact – but we can’t deny that this is what the Christian God says.
But this is why we need good news; and we have some very good news indeed!
When Jesus lived on this earth – he lived the perfect life. A life devoid of sin. A life filled with love (even to his enemies), compassion, humility, kindness, forgiveness, patience, joy, generosity and miracles. The ONE man who deserved favour with God, the one man who earned every reward and deserved every good thing to happen to him. Jesus, the only one who truly deserved to end up in heaven – broke Karma. What he actually got was separation from God, betrayal, hatred, jealousy, lashes, whipping, loneliness, pain, suffering and death. He got the cross. He received humanity’s karma – what we deserved for failing to do good when we could have, for doing evil when we should have done good – for our sin. But what did we get in this karma exchange?
EVERYTHING.We get everything Jesus earned.
We get his perfect performance record. We get his CV, as it were. The flawless resume that leaves employers clamouring to be chosen. A clean sheet. A new start. But ultimately, most beautifully;  we get to be family with God – we get all the benefits of being God’s son. God’s daughter.

Brewing Gospel ale

Dave Harvey says, “The Gospel is the heart of the Bible. Everything in Scripture is either preparation for the Gospel, presentation of the Gospel, or participation in the Gospel.” Many Christians act as if that this good news is merely the entry into the faith – and are ready to load you up with another to do list once you get in. But the Gospel is the lens for how we view all of scripture. It makes sense of the troubling bits in the Old Testament… it helps us live without having to be overwhelmed by impossible moral or spiritual to do lists.
The Gospel is about heart transformation, not about behaviour modification. To-do lists modify behaviour, while the good news begins to modify our hearts. God’s ultimate gift for us, his ultimate sacrifice – is what motivates us into life, and impacts how we behave. The Gospel melts our hearts, and moves our hands. It’s the beautiful melody that captures our imagination, delights our heart, and we can’t help our feet start tapping to its rhythm… So if we see that our behaviour needs changing, we don’t just simply just try harder to change – we realise how sad the world has become without that amazing song; how did it go again? We need to get the Gospel down deep into our hearts and minds so that we can’t help but start moving to a different beat. This gives us both greater faculties to assist change than guilt and to-do lists ever could – but the strength and the desire to do so.
The Gospel needs time to brew. It needs to ferment, permeate and change. It needs to be mulled over, talked about, talked through and celebrated. And sometimes by dancing long into the night. Good beer takes time to create, and refine. And it gets better with age – but when it’s done, it’s a beautiful thing that makes parties come alive, celebrations complete and lazy Sunday afternoons all that much better.
Come join with us in brewing, drinking, and dancing to this wonderful news.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ."


There are a few major problems with this presentation of the gospel thus making it false because it is diluted and on top of that when I  confronted the gospel brew twitter page about  this presentation of a watered down gospel- the reason given was not biblical at all but very heretical.


I came across this blog when I made a tweet stating the biblical truth that if you have sinned you deserve the fair and righteous judgment of God which is an eternity in hell and the gospel brew twitter page responded to me as seen below -




I read the article and misinterpreted some of the things conveyed in the article after which I apologized for due to poor and hasty judgement on my part. The article is poorly exegeted as well too.  I looked for a statement of beliefs for this blog in light of 1 John 4:1 and did not find one. I looked at their "what is the gospel" page twice.
When I noticed there was something wrong, I proceeded to voice my concern privately with the gospel brew page in their dm.





Here is the conversation -







































As you can see from this conversation many claims were made by the gospel brew twitter page , however none were biblical.





Biblical Problems with the diluted gospel presented by Gospel Brew and points used to justify spreading a false gospel

Galatians 1:8 " But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!"

The precious gospel is an essential belief- a belief that one cannot die in order to be a Christian. In fact, the Bible states that the gospel is of first importance as seen in 1 Corinthians 15:1-3. Essential beliefs are beliefs that one cannot deny in order to be a Christian. For more on the essential beliefs of a true Christian please read this - https://carm.org/essential-doctrines-of-christianity
The fact that gospel brew blog is diluting the gospel according to scriptures is very concerning.

1. On the "what is the gospel" page offered on this blog, there are many problems. There are no scriptures cited in light of 2 Timothy 3:16 to explain what the gospel is according to scripture,   no mention of what sin is according to the scripture, God's righteous judgment on the sinner being hell, who Jesus is according to scripture (God-man, 2nd person in the trinity, Son of God) , no mention of what Jesus actually saves from- God's righteous  wrath , no precise biblical statement on how Jesus rose from the dead in the same body he died in physically but a glorified body to save etc This is a major points to leave out because they are essential to the gospel message and without all these mentioned you have a false gospel. Many cults are successful at diluting details of the gospel to get a false gospel. This blog is no different. This blog in their false gospel presentation compares Jesus's work on the cross for God's glory to "karma". Karma is not biblical and is false . "Karma is a theological concept found in the Buddhist and Hindu religions. It is the idea that how you live your life will determine the quality of life you will have after reincarnation." https://gotquestions.org/karma.html Such a lie is incompatible with the truth of Christ in the gospel yet this blog uses it. It should not be a surprise because this blog has no proper doctrinal statement on the essentials of the truth of the Christian faith and dilutes the gospel by leaving out key details. This is a classic example of people attempting to appease the carnal man at the expense of God's word. This blog even goes as far as comparing the gospel to beer with an analogy. Focused on analogies but not giving the whole counsel of God with scripture in context? Very dangerous.

Here is what the gospel is according to  the Holy scriptures - http://www.stand4thelord.com/p/the-gospel-only-good-news-and-only.html

Now I will respond to some of the  unbiblical points made by the gospel brew blog to justify their diluting of the gospel. The gospel brew's comments will be in italic and are taken from the screenshots above.


2.  "I think because at the time I wrote that I had just left a legalistic performance -Christianity church.......Fear of hell has never brought me to follow God more: it was his awful , incredible love displayed at the cross" - This statement was in response to my question why the reality and biblical truth of Hell was left out in the blog's false gospel presentation. As you can see here,  the gospel was diluted the gospel because of personal preference and experience instead of glorifying God by giving the whole counsel of God with regards to the gospel . Experience and feelings do not determine truth and Christians are called to give the whole counsel of God.


Acts 20:27 ""For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God."
Proverbs 30:5-6 "Every word of God is tested;He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar."

God is clearly against adding or subtracting from his word yet this gospel brew blog has no problem in diluting the essential truth of the gospel. This blog will be held accountable for all the people they mislead - Galatians 1:6-9, James 3;1.


3. "Hell is generally a stumbling block to people believing in God, so I wont make it a large focus because I want the work of Christ to be" - Nowhere in the Bible does it state this false sentiment made by the gospel brew blog. God calls us to give the whole counsel in sharing the gospel not just what sounds good. God does not also call us to withhold certain parts because of how people will react. As Christians we are to declare the whole counsel and let God do the saving. God is sovereign in salvation(John 6:44) yet He has given Christians the reposnsibility of sharing the gospel(Mark 16:15)

The Bible speaks of false teachers like gospel brew who twist and dilute the word of God tickle people's ears and get a favorable response 2 Timothy 4:3 "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires," . Gospel brew claims to spread the gospel yet leaves out major details of the gospel therefore preaching a false gospel. Why would anyone follow such a group- a group that does not love the Lord and their neighbor enough to give the whole counsel according to scripture?

4. "Where in the Bible does it explicitly say that the  preaching of the gospel requires mentioning hell" -  This question is a poor attempt from the heretical blog gospel brew to avoid the fact that it does not preach the whole counsel of the gospel according to the scripture. Gospel brew asked this question even though as evidently seen in the conversation screen shot above, the Bible is not the blog's standard of authority. The mention of hell and other parts of the gospel left out by gospel brew in an attempt to appease the masses need to be mentioned because they are part of the gospel message. Scripture defines how we are to preach scripture. Nowhere in the Bible does it say explicitly the word "trinity" but we know the truth of God being triune is to be taught by looking at all of scripture. I also even brought up to gospel brew that Jesus does not explicitly condemn "gay marriage" however we know "gay" marriage is wrong because Jesus defined what marriage is in Genesis 2:21-25 and Matthew 19:5-6. A Christian knows that he must preach the whole gospel by mentioning all details because God in his word clearly defines what the gospel is- to leave out any truth in the gospel is to present a false gospel that does not glorify God and leads nobody to repentance and faith in Christ. It does not matter whether people will like it or not and we are not to dilute it to make it easier to accept at the expense of God's word.


CONCLUSION

What gospel brew is doing is what many professing "Christians" do  - i.e leave out the hard truths of the gospel in order to lead more people to Christ. This may seem noble but is very unloving and leads people to hell apart from God because it misrepresents who God is. God hates when is misrepresented, read Job 42. The gospel is an essential belief and to add details or take away details is worng and leads to hell damning heresy. If you read the screenshots, you see I responded to each point made by this wicked blog with scripture in context. Gospel brew had no scripture in context to support its heresy. Lots of "churches" are doing this, diluting the truth and not giving the whole counsel of God.

Gospel brew does not care about giving the whole counsel of God according to sound doctrine with scripture- you see this in its gospel presentation( a false gospel) and its absence of a proper doctrinal statement on the essentials. Please do not follow this blog, they will flatter you and mislead you to hell apart form God with a false gospel. If they won't tell you the whole truth on the essential belief of the gospel, what else will they not tell you the truth on? This blog spreads a false gospel that will lead you to hell apart from God.

Acts 17:11 - "Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with [great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.


Introduction

This article is a response to CARM's article - "What things should we look for in a church" found here - https://carm.org/look-for-in-a-church

In this article , the heresy of "conditional security" (a true Christian can lose their salvation) is categorized as a "debatable issue" in light of Romans 14:1-12.

Here is the direct quote from the article -

"Debatable Issues

  1. Romans 14:1-12 tells us not to judge a person on debatable issues.  We must be careful to continue in fellowship with other believers and not pass judgment on debatable issues.  Such issues are:
    1. Can you lose your salvation?
    2. Should we worship on Saturday, Sunday, or any other day?
    3. Is the rapture pre, mid, or post tribulation?
    4. Which is the correct view on the end times: Amillennialism, Premillenialism, or Post Millennialism?"


The purpose of this article is to correct CARM in light of Galatians 6:1 on this gross oversight.
We at 2 Corinthians 10:5 deeply respect and love our brother in Christ- Matt Slick- the president and founder of CARM, however he is simply wrong to state that the belief in the heresy of "conditional security" is a debatable issue based on Romans 14:1-12. CARM as a ministry has greatly blessed us and if you look at our website, we use so much of their biblically sound teachings as resources.

However, in light of Acts 17:11, our allegiance is to Jesus Christ and with that being said we must oppose the false teaching that the heresy of conditional security is a Romans 14:1-12 issue.
Adopting such a false view is very dangerous with many serious ramifications- a lot of which will be examined in this article.



THE HERESY OF CONDITIONAL SECURITY IS NOT A ROMANS 14:1-12 ISSUE

Romans 14:1-12 says "Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only. The one who eats is not to regard with contempt the one who does not eat, and the one who does not eat is not to judge the one who eats, for God has accepted him. Who are you to judge the [a]servant of another? To his own [b]master he stands or falls; and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
One person [c]regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it for the Lord, and he who eats, [d]does so for the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who eats not, for the Lord he does not eat, and gives thanks to God. For not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For it is written,
As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall [e]give praise to God.”
12 So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God."


Here is the proper context of Romans 14:1-12 as  delivered by Pastor John MacArthur  -

"So, our Lord established there a very important truth, and that is that we must take great care not to offend or look down on any other believer.  Now I believe that Paul picks this theme up and it brings us now to Romans chapter 14.  And Paul's great concern here is that we learn as believers in the church how to get along.  Now last Lord's Day evening, I mentioned to you that we're all aware of the fact that sin causes a rift in the fellowship.  Sin fractures the fellowship of the church.  But there is another area that can create great chaos and confusion and struggle and strife and conflict in the church and that's not so much in the area of overt sin as it is in the area of strong and weak believers being in conflict over preferential issues.  Not issues that are moral issues or biblical issues that are clear cut, but preferential issues.  And we talked about the fact that in the church you have people who prefer certain things and other people who prefer different things.  And the potential for clashing is very great.  The church is a mixture of Christians at all levels of spiritual growth, from brand new babies to very, very mature men and women in Christ.  People from all kinds of backgrounds, people who come from a wild kind of licentious, lawless background and people who come from a very traditional, very rigid, very ritualistic, legalistic background, and we all come to Christ and we all wind up in the church and there's a potential clash when our preferences for say external forms of worship, preferential styles of life vary and can create some problems.  And we went into that in detail last time.


So, what Paul is bringing to our attention here in this matter of Christian living which he began in chapter 12 is the need to develop a loving compatibility among all believers in the church.


Now let me just remind you that there are two believers that he sort of focuses on: the weak and the strong.  And we define a weak Christian as a believer who because of some preference, maybe because of his past experience or orientation, but a believer who because of some preference cannot understand and fully enjoy his freedom in Christ.  He tends to be narrow.  He tends to be somewhat legalistic.  He tends to be rather intolerant of spiritual liberty.  He's confined because of some preferences that have been bound to him through some past experience.


On the other hand, a strong believer is one who does understand his freedom, does enjoy his freedom, is not constrained by ceremonies or traditions or rituals, or any kind of non-moral externals.  And so, the strong believer tends to just live his liberty to the fullest.  And the weak believer tends to be extremely confined.  And the potential problem comes when the weak believer looks at the strong believer and accuses him of being abusive of freedom.  And the strong believer looks at the weak believer and accuses him of being too narrow and not understanding what Christ has really provided.  And so there is conflict potentiated.  The disharmony then comes when the strong despise the weak as being small-minded, untaught, and narrow.  And the weak condemn the strong for abusing their liberty.

Now the church at Rome obviously faced this problem because it had in it many Jews.  The Jews who had come out of a very tight, very strict Judaistic background with laws that touched on every area of life, what you ate, how you cooked it, what you wore, the kind of clothing, the days you celebrated certain festivals and feasts. Myriads of rules and laws and rituals and routines had been built into their culture to the extent that they were almost an involuntary behavior.  And they came to Christ, and of course, in Christ all of those external ceremonies, rituals from the Old Testament and tradition were wiped away.  And it may not have been a problem for the Gentiles so they might have celebrated their liberty and greatly offended the Jews, who though having faith in Christ were unable to understand their freedom from the laws of ceremony that were so much a part of their heritage.  And after all, as we said last week, those laws were ordained originally by God. And so, it was very common.  In fact, it was the norm for converted Jews to hold on to Mosaic tradition, and in some cases to want to bind that externalism to the Gentiles as well.


On the other hand, there were some Gentiles who came out of a wild, pagan, religious background and there were certain things that were a part of their background such as feasts and festivals to the various gods and idols.  And we said that in those feasts they would offer food to their idol.  What food wasn't consumed in a feast or eaten by the priests would show up in a marketplace and be sold for money to support the temple operation.  So it is possible that you might buy meat that had once been offered to an idol.  And if you served that to a Gentile who used to worship that idol, it would offend him greatly because he would see it as having been desecrated.  And so it's possible that even Gentiles were very narrow in some areas of their Christian experience and unable to enjoy the fullness of their liberty in Christ.  An idol is nothing, Paul says in 1 Corinthians 8, don't worry about it.  But at the same time, we don't want to be offensive to one another.


Now remember, the issues Paul is dealing with are not sin issues, they're preference issues, issues of tradition, non-moral issues.  In order to help us to understand how strong and weak are to get along, he gives us four main thrusts from verse 1 of 14 through 13 in chapter 15.  I mentioned those to you last time, I'll just briefly mention them now.  First, in verses 1 to 12 he says you have to receive each other.  You have to receive each other, open your arms and take each other in." - http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/45-109


As you can see , Romans 14:1-12 is scripture that deals with how Christians are to relate with each other on preferential issues. Preferential issues are issues that are neither moral nor biblical and are not clear cut.

It is a serious eisegesis error on CARM's behalf to say conditional security is a Romans 14:1-12 issue  when in context Romans 14:1-12 addresses debatable and preferential issues.
By CARM claiming the heresy of conditional security is a  Romans 14:1-12   means God preserving a person he saves is debatable and is a preferential issue!!

How is the work of God in salvation debatable or a matter of preference? How is God's work in salvation not clear cut?

John 10:29 says "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. "

These are the words of God directly from Jesus Christ's mouth(God-man, 2nd person in the trinity, Son of God) on the eternal security of a person saved by God through Christ. How is this debatable ? How is this not clear cut? How are Jesus' statements which are full of the Spirit and of life( John 6:63) to be treated as matters of preference? Who is the man that can pluck a person from God's hand once he is saved by God? Who?!

Conditional security is heresy and distorts the essential belief of the gospel. It is an attack on God's faithfulness and promise to preserve all he saves.

Romans 8:29-30 says "For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; 30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified"


Conditional security cannot be labeled as a debatable issue in light of Romans 14:1-12 because conditional security is an attack on the gospel of Jesus Christ and the salvation he provides. How is Jesus saving  and obtaining an eternal redemption for the person who believes the gospel debatable , not clear -cut , or a matter of preference?!! It is not.
Hebrews 9:12 says "and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption."

The heresy of conditional security is an attack on God's character and nature. Consider Ephesians 1:4-14 which says 

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,  just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before [a]Him. In love [b]He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the [c]kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In [d]Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He [e]lavished on [f]us. In all wisdom and insight He [g]made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His [h]kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration [i]suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things [j]in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him 11 [k]also we [l]have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in [m]Christ would be to the praise of His glory. 13 In [n]Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also [o]believed, you were sealed in [p]Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is [q]given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory."

As you can see, God- the true Holy Triune God of the Bible saves us through the gospel. The Father selects, the Son saves and the Holy Spirit seals!! Every person of the God-head plays a role in a believer's salvation. This is not debatable!! To believe and teach conditional security is an attack on God's triune nature. To teach that attacks on God's nature is debatable with Romans 14:1-12 is wrong!!

Conditional security is simply heresy and has been tolerated under the guise of being a matter of "preference" with no scripture in context!! In light of Jude 1:3, believers must oppose this!! It is an attack on the gospel and who God is.

Questions for CARM

1. How is CARM promoting biblical fidelity when Matt Slick holds to the biblical truth of eternal security in salvation provided by Jesus Christ but is okay with his audience attending a church that teaches a Christian can lose their salvation?
Titus 1:9 says "holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict."
An Elder must be biblically sound and hold to the truth of the gospel in all areas, it is a lack of biblically fidelity to encourage others to attend a church where the gospel is diluted under the guise of Romans 14:1-12.

2. Mark 12:31 says "The second is this, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment greater than these." How is it truly loving to suggest that is okay to attend a church where the word of God is diluted on salvation ? How?

3. Jesus Christ is the only way to God- John 14:6. Jesus said it himself. This is not debatable . Jesus says no man can snatch the ones the Father has given him in John 10:29. This is not debatable. Why is Romans 14:1-12 being misapplied to the heresy of conditional security only ?

4. Would CARM be ok with doing evangelism with a Pastor or Evangelist  who claimed to be a Christian and  believed a true Christian could lose their salvation and taught it? Why or why not?
Amos 3:3 says "Do two men walk together unless they have made an appointment?" What do you do when the Pastor/Evangelist tells a  potential convert- "here is the gospel but you can lose your salvation". Would you refute that or tolerate it due to Romans 14:1-12 applied out of context? Is not a Pastor or Elder supposed to teach sound doctrine in light of Titus 2:1?

5. What do you do with the possibility of a new convert reading your article on what to look for in a church and because you say "losing your salvation" is a debatable issue by taking Romans 14:1-12 they attend a church that not only perverts the gospel on the eternal security of a believer but in other areas as well? A little leaven ruins the whole lump(Galatians 5:9), if a church is teaching a true Christian can lose their salvation what else are they compromising on?

6. 1 Timothy 4:16  "  Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will [a]ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you."  Are you truly paying close attention to what you are teaching and recommending for people to look for in a Church in accordance to sound doctrine? God will hold you accountable for the people you mislead.


Conclusion
The heresy of conditional security is an attack on the gospel and God's character. It is not a matter of preference. Romans 14:1-12 does not make this a debatable issue. God through his word determines truth - 2 Timothy 3:16 not church history, opinion etc   Apostasy is not to be confused with conditional security either.

CARM needs to repent.

2 Peter 2:1-3 "But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep."

Introduction

Erica Jacques is a false teacher on youtube who preaches a false gospel that will lead you to hell apart from God.  She also denies the truth of the trinity i.e God is one and three distinct persons at the same time - Deuteronomy 6:4 and Matthew 3:16-17.

False teacher Erica preaches a false gospel. She teaches that you must do good in order to be saved as opposed to faith in Jesus Christ(God-man, 2nd person in the trinity, Son of God)  alone to be saved from the wrath of God for your sins - Romans 5:1. Good works cannot save you yet Erica Jacques preaches this leading many to hell apart from God. Jesus saves not good works!!
Here is the gospel-  http://www.stand4thelord.com/p/the-gospel-only-good-news-and-only.html


Erica Jacques is a false teacher because she preaches heresy that will lead you to hell apart from God by denying the essential christian beliefs of the gospel, grace through faith and God being triune- i.e God exists as a trinity.

For more on the essential beliefs of christianity, read this - https://carm.org/essential-doctrines-of-christianity

Here are videos refuting her false teachings based of her own heretical teachings -


1. Erica Jacques denies the trinity







2. Erica Jacques teaches we are under the law and not grace in violation of Romans 6:14. She teaches the law saves not Jesus. This is heresy.

3. Erica Jacques accused this ministry of denying Jesus is God in the flesh even though our statement of beliefs affirm the truth that Jesus is God in the flesh
Conclusion 

Erica Jacques does not preach the gospel. Please avoid her. She will lead you to hell apart from God. Romans 16:17-18

Jude 1:3-4 "Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God[a] and our Lord Jesus Christ."



Introduction

The purpose of this article is to call for more discernment according to scripture for God's glory amongst all Christians . With numerous people claiming to be Christians and making music about Jesus Christ, it seems nobody is asking and checking Christian musician's beliefs in light of scripture like 1 John 4:1. Has Christianity become so shallow today that in order to be promoted at a church all I have to say is "I believe in Jesus"? In other words, as long as I believe in a "Jesus", it does not matter whether I believe in the true Jesus of the Bible?

Whether people like it or not , there are essential beliefs(beliefs that one cannot deny) in order to be a Christian. The Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Catholics etc would claim they believe in Jesus but the problem is they believe in a false Jesus- not the Jesus of the Bible.

Jesus was clear in John 8:24 " "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." Your faith is only as good as who you put it in.

Churches, Christian websites like Rapzilla, Holy Culture etc are you testing the spirits (1 John 4:1) before you promote these people to your various audiences and congregation? The people you promote do you check their beliefs of the essentials and also what church they attend? God takes false teachings seriously and you should too because false doctrine leads people away from Christ. (1 Timothy 4:16)
Here are the essential beliefs of  Christianity - https://carm.org/essential-doctrines-of-christianity

Cellus Hamilton


Cellus Hamilton is a rapper I discovered while browsing the website  Holy Culture. I listened to his music and it seemed to be glorifying Jesus Christ. However, in light of 1 John 4:1, I wanted to know what his beliefs were and what church he attended. I contacted him on twitter.

Here is our conversation -











As you can see Cellus Hamilton believes and defends a false gospel. He attends Hillsong which is a false church that spreads a false gospel known as the "word of faith" and also ignores God's instruction on how the church is to be run by ordaining women as pastors in direct violation of scriptures like 1 Timothy 3. Hillsong is led by false teacher Brian Houston.
Brian Houston also falsely teaches false god Allah and God are the same. When I exposed the evidence of this belief he attempted to interject in my conversation with Cellus by claiming I was lying as seen below -




The gospel is an essential belief - Galatians 1:6-9 and there being only one true God(triune) is an essential belief - Isaiah 43:10. You cannot deny these essential beliefs and be a Christian. The word of faith( the "prosperity" gospel or name it claim it) is NOT the gospel. God warned about such a false message in 1 Timothy 6:9-11. Women are not called to pastor. 1 Timothy 3 clearly shows this.
All these scriptures were given to Cellus and yet he refused to repent and even went as far as claiming I did not know what I was talking about defending Brian Houston a man who leads people to hell apart from God.


The word of faith is NOT the gospel and it will lead you to hell apart from God - http://www.gotquestions.org/Word-Faith.html

Women are not called to pastor - https://carm.org/email-churches-women-pastors


Rapzilla and HolyCulture promote Cellus Hamilton's music. Did they check his beliefs in light of scripture and what church he attends and if they agree with his beliefs are they truly Christian?







This is a huge problem. Remember Jahaziel? He claimed to know Christ and rapped about Christ but now has walked away from the faith showing he never truly knew Christ to begin with(1 John 2:19). When people were promoting him, did anyone check his beliefs and what church he attended to see if he truly believed the essentials?

Cellus Hamilton is deceiving many. Cellus I encourage you to repent and believe the true gospel while God has given you time. I do not encourage anyone to follow Cellus because he defends  and promotes a false gospel that will lead you to hell apart from God.



This'l










I have listened to this'l's music and heard him rap about Jesus Christ. However, I did not know what his beliefs were on the essentials  and what church he attended. I went to his website to see if he had a statement of faith . I did not find one. His website is http://www.iamthisl.com.
I decided to just ask him directly what his beliefs were and what church he attended , so I contacted him on twitter. This is our conversation -






As you can see This'l - a professing Christian refused to answer my questions based on scripture on what he believed.  
  
What was his intention? I clearly stated why I wanted to know if he truly believed Christ. I even went as far sending him  private messages. Here are his responses -






This'l's reasons for not answering my question was not biblical. How is that one can profess to know Christ and make music about Christ but when asked what your beliefs are in light of scripture by some sincerely attempting know you brush them off because you are not a "church"? Something is wrong.

After the private messages, I attempted to find out from other people what This'l actually believed and what church he attended since he would not tell me. In the process, This'l insulted me and called me a troll because I was asking him his beliefs in light of scripture. This'l's responses are not shown because he deleted his tweets.  H even accused me of foolishness. How is it biblically foolish to ask someone what they believe and to test if they are of Christ?- 1 John 4:1

Here is the rest of the conversation -











I pray This'l is led to repentance. As of today, I do not truly know if he affirms the true Jesus Christ of the Bible and what church he attends to test and know if he is of the faith. He dodged direct questions pertaining the issue. What is sad is this man goes around speaking and preaching in addition to his music. The people that invite him, have you guys tested to see if he in the faith ?


Conclusion
God calls us to discernment and to be extremely critical of things concerning him - 1 John 4:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:21. Jude 1:3-4 is very clear on contending for the faith and shows how we are to be on guard in the church. How come when it comes to Christian music professing Christians do not check to see if the person they are listening to is truly of Christ? It matters. Many so-called Christian websites are promoting these acts but not checking their beliefs. We see this in Christian Hip Hop with false Christian rapper - Cellus Hamilton and in other Christian genres with heretical groups Jesus Culture and Hillsong. This'l is very suspect because he denied direct questions about the truth of scripture.   If you know him call him to repentance and ask him to provide his beliefs if indeed he is of Christ.

As Christians, it is not only the responsibility of Pastors to guard the flock. We have a responsibility too. We need to be on guard against heresy and apostasy in our midst as the book of Jude shows.

Rapzilla, HolyCulture , Churches etc everyone needs to do better in testing against scripture for God's glory. Next time you listen to your favorite "Christian" artist, inquire to see if they truly hold to the essential beliefs of a Christian.
Who is letting these wolves in the church?

People promoting these acts without checking their beliefs, are you doing this for Christ or personal gain?

John 3:20 "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."
