[Last week as we started in our study of Galatians we saw,]

         [How we are delivered from this evil world by our Lord Jesus Christ.]

[Today we will continue in our study by examining the confusion that surrounds the Gospel message that has the power to deliver us from this evil world.] 

[The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is the Key to your salvation and deliverance in this world.  Fail to find the one and only Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and its truth and you will fail to be delivered in this evil world. ] 

[Our text today reveals that there are Other Gospels in our world.] 

[Read Text]  

[Glory to God, our Heavenly Father has given us the clear and unmistakable Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We are blessed beyond comprehension by the life changing Gospel of our Lord.] 

[Things we know from the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ include,] 

        [The Gospel was taught by our Lord Jesus Christ (Matt 4.23)]

        [Many who hear the Gospel have and will believe (Acts 15.7)]

        [The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation (Rom 1.16)]

        [The Gospel brings glad tidings of good things (Rom 10.15)]

        [We are begotten through the Gospel (1 Cor 4.15) We become the children of God through the gospel.]

        [We stand in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 15.1)]

        [The Gospel is the light of Christ for the lost (2 Cor 4.4)]

        [To carry the Gospel to this world is our Mission (2 Cor 10.16)]

        [We are partakers of the Promises of God by the Gospel (Eph 3.6)]

        [And much more . . . ] 

[The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ brings every person face to face, so to speak, with,] 

        [Their Current State Lost and undone in sin and on their way to eternal condemnation.]

        [Their Bought State The full realization that they have been bought with a price, the penalty for their sins has been paid in full by the Lord Jesus Christ.]

        [Their Chosen State All must choose to either be redeemed (saved) by the Lord Jesus Christ or reject the Lord Jesus Christ which will condemn them for eternity to come.] 

[That is the work of the true gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.  That my friends is the goal of the simple gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Its goal is to bring lost mankind to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.] 

[However, the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is complicated by the schemes of the devil and the many false gospels that have been developed by mankind.  These many false gospels have developed in to many false religious systems that complicate and confuse the simple and clear Word of God.] 

[Our text clearly declares that there are other Gospels,] 

[Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: ]

[Folks, there are many other gospels in our world.  The sooner one realizes this fact that plagues Christendom the sooner you can study to find the true Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and live the Life Christ has planned for you.] 

Notice first, 

A.   The Reality Of Other Gospel’s (vs 6) [– There are many false gospels in our world.   Let’s consider a few of them.] 

[Now, as we consider these other gospels we need to understand that almost all of these other gospels seem, on the surface, to make sense in one regard or another.  Some of them may even have some misused Bible verse that seems to support them.  There are also likely multitudes of people who are following these false gospels.  We must always remember that our Lords said,] 

[Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:]

There is the Gospel of, 

1.     Universalism (John 14.6; Acts 4.10,12) [– This is that gospel that teaches that all Roads lead to heaven.  There are many in our world that teach this condemning heresy.  Most of the big church names viewed on television teach this gospel.]

[This gospel essentially teaches that God is who you believe that He is, so as long as you believe whatever you believe about God, and are true to your beliefs then you will be ok. ]

[Hence, the Muslim is ok because he really believes what he believes about god.  The Mormon is ok because he really believes what he believes about god.  The Jehovah’s Witness is ok because he really believes what he believes about God.  And on and on it goes.]

[The problem with this other gospel, false gospel, is that it completely denies that God has revealed Himself to us, clearly and undeniably, and we must come to God as He asks us to come to Him.  Folks you cannot know anything about God apart from His revelation and His revelation is the written Word of God, your King James Bible.]

[The Lord Jesus Christ said,]

[John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.]

[This is the Christ who arose physically from the grave and has ascended up on high, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.  He is the one who declares that there is no other way to come to God the Father but through Him.]

[There is no other way.  None!]

[The Word of God declares,]

[Acts 4:10,12 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead. . . . 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. ]

[So Universalism does not line up with the Word of God and is another false Gospel.]

[You can dream up anything you want to about god and call that imagination your god, but if it does not line up with the Word of God, then your god is no god at all.]

[[Universalism is another false gospel.]

2.     Roman Catholicism (1 Tim 2.5; Matt 23.9) [– There is so much wrong with Roman Catholicism that we cannot possibly expound all that is present.  They practice baptismal regeneration, transubstantiation, the worship of Mary and the saints which is nothing less than idolatry, the confessional, indulgences, and penance to list just a few of their errors.  Throughout the dark ages born again Christians referred to Romanism as the devils church and Satan’s Religion.]

[In essence, in Roman Catholicism the Priest, on behalf of the Pope, decides when you are saved.  The priest absolves you of your sins.]

[Now, I could spend hours examining the Word of God and unfolding the many errors of Romanism.  However, for the sake of our survey let me just lightly unfold one error.]

[The current Pope has decreed that next year will be the year of mercy and grace.  He has granted that all priests can show mercy and forgive the terrible sin of abortion.  I’m sure there are other sins they can be absolve as well.  However, does any human being have the power to forgive sins on behalf of God?]

[Concerning the confession to the priests the Word of God states,]

[1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; ]

[There is only one who can forgive sins and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. No worldly priest has been granted by God the power to forgive sins.]

[Also notice, ]

 [Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. ]

[To even call a Roman Catholic priest Holy Father is a violation of the Word of God.]

[Roman Catholicism is one of those other false gospels.]

3.     Baptism - Baptismal Regeneration (1 Pet 3.21; Rom 10.9) [– There are a number of denominations that teach that Baptism Saves you.  The Christian Church teaches that one must be baptized in order to be saved.  Yet the Word of God clearly teaches throughout the New Testament that Baptism cannot save any one.]

[1 Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:]

[Folks, Baptism is a picture of what Christ did for us.  Christ died, was buried (under that water), and rose from the grave.  Every Christian ought to be baptized by immersion, because God commands baptism.  But baptism does not save us.]

[Consider,]

[Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.]

[Notice that baptism is nowhere listed as a requirement for salvation in this passage of Scripture.]

[Baptismal Regeneration is another false gospel.]

4.     Mysticism (Matt 7.21-23) [- Mighty Works – This is the belief that Miracles Save You, or the notion that miracles must prove that you are saved.  Notice carefully what our Lord Jesus Christ is saying in this passage.]

[Matthew 7:21-23 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. ]

[You can do mighty miracles and still have the Lord Jesus Christ say, “I never knew you.”  If you ever hear someone say, “I know I’m right with God because I have worked miracles; Prophecied, Spoken in Tonges, Cast out Demons, Healed other people, etc . . .   Watch out.  That person is relying on some miracle as evidence of his salvation and they are likely not saved at all.]

[Mysticism is another False Gospel.]

5.     Emotionalism/Euphoria (Prov 16.25) [– This is the gospel of whatever makes you happy – or – whatever you think or feel is right.  This is the gospel that says, “If I feel it is right then it must be right.”  This sounds a lot like the Universalism we started with.]

[Euphoria - 1. a state of intense happiness and self-confidence: She was flooded with euphoria as she went to the podium to receive her Student Research Award.  2. Psychology. a feeling of happiness, confidence, or well-being sometimes exaggerated in pathological states as mania.[1]] 

[Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.]

[Folks, you may feel you are right with God because it just feels right in your heart, but if you are not coming to the Lord Jesus Christ the way the Word of God says you must come to Him then you are lost and undone in your sin.]

[Emotionalism is another False Gospel.]

6.     Intellectualism (Col 2.8; Rom 1.22) [ This is the gospel of Education.  There are many people today who have gone to college and they think that with their degree they are just to smart for religion or faith anymore.  Now, there is nothing wrong with getting a good education, that is until your education spoils your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.]

[Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.]

[Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, ]

[Intellectualism is another False Gospel.]

7.     Humanism (Titus 3.5) [– Humanism is the gospel of you.  Ultimately this is you becoming the lord and god of your life.  This was the lie of Satan to Eve in the Garden, he told her that they would be as gods and eve was deceived.]

[Humanism is the religion of every unchurched, godless person in America today.  They have decided that they will be their own god and they will decide what is right and wrong for their life.  They have decided what righteousness is to them and they are doing what is right in their own eyes. The Book of Judges reveals what doing what is right in your own eyes will get you.]

[Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; ]

[Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. ]

[Humanism is another false gospel.]

B.   The Ruin Of Other Gospel’s (vs 7) [- What do false Gospels do to the true Gospel? ]

[Galatians 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. ]

[These false gospel’s will trouble you.  They seek to confuse you, they seek to confuse Christians.  They certainly confuse the lost world around us.] 

[Notice that they also pervert the Gospel of Christ.  They twist and manipulate the true Gospel and the Word of God.  By the way, that’s what modern version of the Bible do, they change the Word of God which is to pervert the Word of God.]

[Don’t let these other Gospel’s trouble or pervert you.  You need to know the Word of God and the true Gospel of Christ and cleave to it.]

C.   The Revelation Of The True Gospel (vs 7; 1 Cor 15.1-4) [- What is the Gospel of the Bible?]

[1 Corinthians 15:1-4 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: ]

[The True Gospel is simple, It is,]

        [The Death of the Lord Jesus Christ (vs 3)]

        [The Burial of the Lord Jesus Christ (vs 4)]

        [The Physical Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ (vs 4)]

        [According to the Word of God (vs 3-4)] 

[If you will put your trust in this simple gospel and the Word of God then you are born again and saved.] 

[The True Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ has the power to save you, to redeem you.] 

D.   The Result of Other Gospel’s (vs 8-9; Matt 7.23) [– What is the result of believing the wrong Gospel? ]

[Galatians 1:8-9 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. ]

[Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. ]

[Every other gospel will lead to your condemnation.  If you proclaim or teach a false gospel then you will be accurse or condemned by God.]

[What Gospel is your Gospel?]

[Are you trusting in the ONLY gospel that can save you? ]

[The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as it is given in the Word of God is the only true gospel.]
