The Gospel of Money

The gospel of money

There are many gospel being preached throughout the body of Christ today. There should only be one Gospel and that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ; The power of God unto salvation. However, you will be hard pressed to hear the real Gospel preached in the world today. I would go as far as saying that if you want to hear the Gospel you'd be more likely to hear it from the guy or old lady preaching on the street corner with their megaphone in one hand and bible in the other.

So what has happened to the Gospel message. Most preachers are so concerned about numbers in there church that they will preach anything to get people through their doors.

2 Timothy 4: 3-43
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

1 Tim 6: 3-10
3If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, 4he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 5and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
6But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. 10For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Flee from this kind of teaching which is plaging the body of Christ.

Amos 8:11
"The days are coming," declares the Sovereign LORD, "when I will send a famine through the land— not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.

We must content for the Gospel which was passed to us by the Apostles, as you can see Paul admonishing this to Timothy since een in his time other gospels where being preached.

Remember it is only the true Gospel of Jesus Christ that can save you and others.

Yours in Christ,

Father God, please forgive us for being a greedy society. Father forgive us for exhaulting money above You and Your Word. May we repent of our own desires and turn to You and seek You first as Matthew 6:33 states.

Dear brother in Christ, I can honestly say that I have purchased some of these teachings, not understanding what I was doing. Thank you for revealing the evil one's plot. Continue on in Christ's Name.
