In popular, evangelical Christianity, nearly everyone who names the name of Christ seems to get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the Gospel. Yet, Scripture is clear that the greatest threats to the true Gospel will come from inside the Church. There will be some who profess to know God, but they deny him by their works (Titus 1:16). Therefore, even if an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed (Galatians 1:8).
Do you test the Gospel taught by your church? by your pastor? Do you examine the gospel preached by the missionaries that you support? How about the gospel taught by your favorite Christian celebrity or athlete?
This begs the question: What is the Gospel that was once handed down to the saints? We will answer that question in an upcoming Sound Church Guys video. Will the true Gospel be popular or will it be offensive?
