Another Gospel

    From time to time there arises a debate on what constitutes “another gospel.”  We all know that there are differences among true and honest believers over various doctrines. When do these differences cross the line from mere differences to heresy? When must we cry, “That is another gospel!?” The answer is so simple that there should never again be a debate on the issue. It is “another gospel” when the message is of “another Jesus!” 

    This is the only issue worth dividing over, and on this issue we must divide with all who disagree. Who is the true Jesus? Of all the adjectives I could use to describe our Lord in the gospel, the one that seems most fitting to me is “the successful Jesus.” The true Jesus is the one who “by Himself (actually did) purge our sins” (Heb. 1:3), the one in whose hand the will of Jehovah prospered (Isa. 53:10), the one who is the Word from God that does not return to God empty but actually accomplishes what God sent Him to do (Isa. 55:11), the one who has already successfully “obtained eternal redemption for us, (Heb. 9:12) That Jesus, and only that Jesus in the Jesus of the gospel! 

    Other Jesuses may be very nice and kind; they may fill your heart with warmth and your eyes with tears, but they cannot save your soul! Only the Jesus of definite, successful, and therefore, particular redemption can deliver your soul to God without spot and blemish. Trust Him, and tolerate no other! Fix your soul fast to Him and your soul shall live! Trust any other Jesus and you shall perish.!!!
