I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed. Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. —Galatians 1:6-10

Beware of those who bring another Jesus and another gospel. Satan is the great deceiver along with the fallen angels, the demons— “But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed” (II Corinthians 11:3-4).

Satan is a subtle deceiver. Just “a” inserted into God’s Word changes all that Jesus is. John 1:1 says that “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” The Jehovah Witnesses’ translation inserts “a” and reads like this: “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was (a) god.” This changes Jesus from being one with the Father and equal to Him to being a lesser god, a god that was created and not eternal. It changes all that took place at the cross and changes the gospel.

Sin is an eternal issue and it took someone eternal to resolve the issue. Jesus, the eternal Son of God was that One that came to resolve that issue at the cross and through the resurrection. This is denied by the Jehovah witnesses and so many others who bring a false Jesus and a false gospel.

There is a very dire warning to those bringing a false gospel. Paul says to let God’s curse fall on them! Wow, I would not want to be in that situation. Those people who bring a false gospel are in danger of judgment and Hell! Fellow follower of Jesus let us proclaim the gospel of our Lord Jesus and not be swayed. May it be so!

Dear Father, as Your gospel goes forward be pleased to draw many to Your Son, Jesus. Oh, may Your Word blossom in those who have heard the gospel. May it be so in the power of the Holy Spirit and by the authority of Jesus.
