Have You Believed Another Gospel? (GLMX #418)
This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #418 titled, “Have You Believed Another Gospel?.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
The Bible teaches that the Gospel is Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection for our sins. According to God’s Word, placing your complete trust in Christ’s atoning death is the only way to Heaven. Jesus Christ said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Although this message is clearly presented in the Bible, there are many people who teach other ways to God. Have you believed another gospel?
The word gospel means, “good news or glad tidings.” The apostle Paul declared in 1 Corinthians 15:1; 3-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” Trusting in Jesus Christ for your salvation is the Gospel the Bible teaches. Have you believed another gospel?
Another Gospel Deceives Your Mind
The Bible states in 2 Corinthians 4:4, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Many people are blinded by vain teachings. The Bible states in Ephesians 5:6, “Let no man deceive you with vain words:” The word vain means “having no real value; worthless, empty.” The only message of real value is that salvation comes by faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Another Gospel Damns Your Soul
Peter asks in 1 Peter 4:17b, “…what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” God gives the answer in 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction…” If you think your good deeds, church backgrounds, or obedience to a set of religious rules will help you escape this punishment, you are not obeying the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Have you believed another gospel?
Another Gospel Denies God’s Word
Paul states in Galatians 1:7-8;11, “…there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.” The Bible clearly teaches that a person must believe the Gospel to go to Heaven. To teach any other way of salvation is to deny God’s Word. Have you believed another gospel?
The Gospel of Jesus Christ Gives Assurance of Eternal Life
Paul stated in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;…” Friend, God does not want you to go to Hell when you die. In fact, the greatest gift ever given was the Gospel, because it shows God’s love for you. The gospel reveals that even though you are a sinner and deserve an eternal punishment in hell, you can be forgiven if you will believe God’s Word and place your complete trust in Christ’s atoning death. God promises in Romans 10:9-10, “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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
If you want to be saved from the wrath to come and from an eternity in Hell, and if you believe that Jesus Christ suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead and you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
