Beware of the Cross-Less gospel
Beware of the Cross-Less gospel. It states that Jesus picked up His cross, but you don’t have to. Sacrifice is still a major part of the Christian’s walk, but sacrifice only what the Lord commands you to. Your spiritual maturity is determined by how much you are willing to sacrifice for the Lord.
Matthew 16:24 – Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
Carrying your cross doesn’t mean that its mere acceptance of the cross but also that you carry it daily.
Luke 9:23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
There is only one true Gospel which comes from Christ. You can read it in the Bible. Don’t go by what others ‘feel’ is the Gospel. Don’t go by what others ‘suggest’ is the Gospel. Go for the facts, go by the Bible only.
Galatians 1:8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.
