Gospel Distortion

Last Sunday, I went to The Brook church.  The pastor, Brian Mayfeild, is preaching a series on the book of Galatians.  The first chapter of Galatians is a warning to believers.  Paul tells the church to avoid those that preach Gospel distortion.

The main points of the sermon were:

  • Distortion of the truth leads to perversion.  Ultimately, perversion leads to death.
  • In the Gospel, we find forgiveness and freedom.
  • To reject the salvation Christ offers is to reject Christ.

I enjoyed the sermon, but I have a question.

There are so many denominations and cults that use the Bible, how can you be sure you are not being deceived?  How do you know if you are being taught a distortion?  These groups can look at the exact same scripture and come up with completely different interpretations.  It all seems so confusing.

One thought on “Gospel Distortion

  1. For me the answer lies in this: “By their fruits you shall know them.” I evaluate based on love, as Jesus has told us. “Where charity and love prevail, there God abounds.” And ask guidance of the Holy Spirit. One time I went with something that offered me an easy way out. It took a while, but finally I realized I was not at peace within myself. Hope this helps.
