FAKES Part 1

In my local paper there was an article written by a collector of many old different things, barb wire being one of them.

He visited all the antique shops in town and said he found them to be honest. This was in contrast to most of the sellers of old items. He called them crooks either on purpose or through ignorance. He warned about buying on eBay due to the fact that people around the world are creating imitation products that on the surface look like the real thing.

His father left him an old clock which he took to an appraiser who told him it was worth around $30,000.00 dollars, but when he tried to get him to buy it, it was no sale. He then had an Eastern appraiser value it, and he said it was not the genuine article but what we would call today a knock off.  He further told him who it was who copied the genuine clock and wherein lay the difference.  Had it been real, the value would have been around $100,000.00 dollars but due to the fact it was a fake the value was about $15,000.00.

The fact is there are those who are crooks in every field of endeavor, and the religious community is not excluded.

Paul says in Galatians 1: 6-9; “I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you by (the) grace (of Christ) for a different gospel (Not that there is another), but there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ.”

Paul continued: “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach (to you) a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed!  As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the one that you received, let that one be accursed!"

There are new “Gospels” created every day, and many flock to them. The sad part is that one day Jesus will have to say “Depart from me I never knew you for theirs is another gospel, not the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Along with the “another gospel” comes another god and another book with another set of rules.

Some of these gospels may walk like a duck and quack like a duck but it isn't a duck. It is only a decoy that is designed to fool other duck followers.

These false cults provide for some the needs of the people like fellowship and causes to support, but are unable to supple the real need, and that is reconciliation with GOD, this is only found in the gospel of Christ.

In the second part of this rant I will focus on some things that are not part of “The’ Gospel.
