We are often told that too much of anything can be really bad. Dentists love to tell us to lay off the sugar or it will rot our teeth. And too much sugar-coated gospel will damage your soul or maybe I should say it will lead to the condemnation of your soul.
I like sweet things! I know the Lord is love, he is mercy, forgiveness and grace BUT he has rules he established that we should all live by and they are for our good! He will not accept anything less. He will not change his word to suddenly declare a behavior acceptable after he has already said that it is not. I want people saved and I know what is being taught today, so please read these scriptures, read the Bible for yourself and never let anyone “fool” you out of your soul by pleasing your flesh.
Last time we looked at scriptures that were given to give us a heads up about these people and the dangers of being anywhere near them and believe me that did not even skim the surface of the amount of Bible teaching on the subject.
Titus 1:10-11,13,15-16: “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially those of the circumcision: WHOSE MOUTHS MUST BE STOPPED, who subvert whole houses, TEACHING THINGS WHICH THEY OUGHT NOT, FOR FILTHY LUCRE’S SAKE (MONEY) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke the sharply, that they may be sound in the faith. Unto the pure all things are pure: BUT UNTO THEM THAT ARE DEFILED AND UNBELIEVING IS NOTHING PURE; EVEN THEIR MIND AND CONSCIENCE IS DEFILED. THEY PROFESS TO KNOW GOD; BUT IN WORKS THEY DENY HIM, BEING ABOMINABLE, AND DISOBEDIENT, AND UNTO EVERY GOOD WORK A REPROBATE.”
2 Peter 2:12-14,17-19: “But these as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of things they understand not: AND SHALL UTTERLY PERISH IN THEIR OWN CORRUPTION; and shall receive the reward of their unrighteousness, as they count it pleasure to riot in the day time.
Spots they are and blemishes, SPORTING THEMSELVES WHILE THEY FEAST WITH YOU; HAVING EYES FULL OF ADULTERY, THAT CANNOT CEASE FROM SIN;
BEGUILING (ENTICING) UNSTABLE SOULS: AN HEART THEY HAVE EXERCISED WITH COVETOUS PRACTICES; CURSED CHILDREN:
THESE ARE WELLS WITHOUT WATER, CLOUDS THAT ARE CARRIED WITH A TEMPEST; TO WHOM THE MIST OF DARKNESS IS RESERVED FOR EVER.
FOR WHEN THEY SPEAK GREAT SWELLING WORDS OF VANITY,THEY ALLURE THROUGH THE LUST OF THE FLESH, THROUGH MUCH WANTONNESS, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
WHILE THEY PROMISE LIBERTY, THEY THEMSELVES ARE SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is overcome, and of the same he is brought in bondage.”
Jude:11,12: “WOE UNTO THEM! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward (profit), and perished in the gainsaying of Core, THESE ARE SPOTS IN YOUR FEASTS OF CHARITY, WHEN THEY FEAST WITH YOU, FEEDING THEMSELVES WITHOUT FEAR: CLOUDS THEY ARE WITHOUT WATER, CARRIED ABOUT OF WINDS; TREES WHOSE FRUIT WITHERETH, WITHOUT FRUIT, TWICE DEAD, PLUCKED UP BY THE ROOTS; “
We are told almost verbatim, a couple of things, they claim to represent God but their actions prove otherwise, they are wells who have no water, dry and lacking the spirit, they are clouds being blown in every direction with every new fad because they go in the way that will profit them financially and in pleasing the popular crowd.
So let’s look at their ultimate end and what GOD has to say is their demise.
Isaiah 5:18-21,23,24: “Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were a cart rope: That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
WOE UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL; THAT PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT, AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; THAT PUT BITTER FOR SWEET, AND SWEET FOR BITTER!
WOE UNTO THEM THAT ARE WISE IN THEIR OWN EYES, AND PRUDENT IN THEIR OWN SIGHT! WHICH JUSTIFY THE WICKED FOR A REWARD, AND TAKE AWAY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RIGHTEOUS FROM HIM!
Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, SO AS THEIR ROOT SHALL BE ROTTENNESS, and their blossom shall go up as dust: BECAUSE THEY HAVE CAST AWAY (DISREGARDED) THE LAW OF THE LORD OF HOST AND DESPISED THE WORD OF THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.”
Finally, flee from them, have no part and do not listen to their poison doctrine, even out of curiosity because it is a disgrace. and it is cursed!
.Galatians 1:6-9: “I marvel not that you are so soon removed (turning away) from him that called you into the gospel of Christ UNTO ANOTHER GOSPEL: WHICH IS NOT ANOTHER;BUT THERE BE SOME THAT TROUBLE YOU, AND WOULD (WANT TO) PERVERT THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST.
BUT THOUGH WE, OR ANY ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL UNTO YOU, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. AS WE SAID BEFORE, SO SAY I NOW AGAIN, IF ANY MAN PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL UNTO YOU THAN THAT YE HAVE RECEIVED, LET HIM BE ACCURSED.”
He wants you saved, He died for YOUR SINS, so if the candy coats tell you that there is no sin, well as the Bible says that if any of us say we have no sin, we are liars, just think of them as a little too sweet, fake friends who smile in your face as you pull a knife out of your back, because a real friend will love you enough to tell you the truth.
