Is There Such A Thing As A False Gospel?

 Please consider:

"Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints." (Jude 3)

 Imagine that, Jude a “REAL CHRISTIAN" wanted to write about salvation but he dedicated this letter for other Christians to be warned about something extremely important. What could be so serious that Jude addressed it? Please ponder: 

"For certain men whose condemnation was written aboutlong ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord." (Jude 4)

Paul had similar concerns about godless men:

"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospelwhich is really no gospel at all. "(Gal 1:6)

In other words, in 1st century Christianity, certain men who claimed to be Christians were actually godless men. They polluted the original gospel preached by Christ and Paul with an enticing sounding gospel that paved the way for aspiring bible believers to be swayed into thinking they could commit awful sinful acts such as adultery, fornication and drunkenness…etc and still be considered a real Christian inline for salvation.

Unfortunately, this subtle and deceitful message is still being polluted among God’s people in our day.  Please always remember what the Bible says:

"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God"(1 Cor 6:9-10).

Furthermore:

"The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life." (Gal 6:8)

Moreover:

"The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. "(Gal 5:19-21)

Please repent if any of these evil acts describes you. I must repent if these acts describe me. The World must repent as today’s times are marked with this wretched behavior.

Love,

These exponents of the false Gospel are readily identified by their fruits.<br />
The Prosperity Gospel is alive and well via Televangelists.This false Gospel is transmitted via syndication worldwide and have gatherd unto themselves followers from all walks of life and in so doing have enlarged their personal fortunes. Does Matthew 10:8 only allude to spiritual gifts? or do those that Merchandise the Gospel have a fire escape, freely you have received freely give, doesn't sound like a licence to profit from your spiritual gift to me no matter what. Yet so called evangelicals and fundamentalists seem to believe they are entitled to money from books CDs, and anything else you can name, books cost money to produce undoubtably, but what happened to faith<br />
relying on the Lord to recoup if such writing is His will, no matter what the Spiritual gift from God is to any individual it is not for merchandising.The Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, and a star studded cast are preaching a false Gospel to the gullible, but all others selling what Spiritual gift they have are not without blemish.
