The False Gospel of Universal Atonement
And the Faith that Accompanies It

The False Gospel of Universal Atonement

    The vast majority of people who have ever heard of a person named Jesus Christ, also believe that He died for everyone in the world that has ever been born. Theologians call this doctrine Universal Atonement and it falls under the system of theology called Arminianism or Pelagianism, both named after false prophets who died long ago. In this scheme of thought it is explained that Jesus died for all, to make all POTENTIALLY SAVABLE and all you have to do is believe that Jesus died for you. If the majority of everybody already believes that Jesus Christ died for everybody that has ever been born, that means they already believe that Jesus Christ died for them.

    The devils are said to "believe and tremble." So even the devils are familiar with the historical facts of the death, burial, and resurrection. This goes to show that the gospel is not just the fact of the death, burial, and resurrection. The gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection "ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES" (1st Corth 15:1-4). The gospel is said to be the "gospel of the grace of God" (Acts 20:24). Also the gospel has the righteousness of God revealed in it (Romans 1:16-17). Also the word gospel means good news. These are just some of the things that make up the ingredients of the gospel.

    So the idea that the gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection, nothing more or nothing less, is NOT a scriptural teaching. Questions that are in relation to the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ are of vital importance for a gospel declaration. He cares about the glory and honor involved in His own Person and work. Many people want to be so ecumenical and inclusive because they are afraid the will offend those they preach to. The scriptures clearly teach that the gospel is an offensive message and when the offense is taken out the gospel looses it's power and is make of no effect, worthless. How is that done? By taking out grace or imputed righteousness, adding works, allow space for self righteousness, making salvation conditioned on the sinner, or describing a jesus the Scriptures know nothing about. These are just a few ways the gospel is being perverted today. Do not be fooled!
