For I am not ashamed of the gospel because I know it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes; first to the Jew then to the Gentile. Romans 1:16
Counterfeit Christianity Versus The Real Thing
Far too often Jesus Christ and Christianity are being distorted, and so many people reject a Jesus or Christianity that is not even a true version of it. There are so many people who don’t understand who Jesus Christ truly is or what He has done for us.
If only those people could understand what real Christianity is and what the gospel of Jesus Christ truly means; so that if they do end up rejecting it, at least they know in truth what they’re choosing to reject. Or if they decide to accept it, at least they’re accepting the true version of Jesus and Christianity - and not one of its many shiny counterfeits that aims to lead people astray and trap them through worldly desires, masquerading as the Truth..
..which is Satan’s ultimate goal in this world. The Father of Lies works so hard to steer people away from the one true God, away from their salvation - through half truths, lies, and deceit of counterfeit religion, human merit and achievement, and the endless chasing of self-love and self-sufficiency.
I love being a vessel of God and sharing the true gospel of Jesus Christ for others to hear. And it's only by the power of the Holy Spirit working in you that people can be brought to faith where the eyes of their hearts are enlightened to the Truth.
In the end, those who are truly meant to hear and receive the Word of God, will so, only by the power of God. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. (John 10:27)
All glory belongs to God - for this is His story, not ours. But by His grace, we are a part of it.
Here is an eight minute video of one of my favorite pastors, Paul Washer, on sharing the pure gospel of Jesus Christ. I encourage you to watch it, and may the grace of God help you truly hear it.
