What is the pure gospel of Jesus Christ?

Main scriptures: 

  • Mark 1:15 (KJV) “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
  • Luke 9:23 (KJV) And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me (Jesus), let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
  • Luke 13:3 (KJV) “I (Jesus) tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
  • Jesus Himself said: “You CANNOT be my disciple, unless you love me more than you love your father and mother, your wife and children, and your brothers and sisters. You cannot come with me unless you love me more than you love your own life. You cannot be my disciple unless you carry your own cross and come with me.” -Luke 14:26-27 Contemporary English Version (CEV) 

Today, not all churchgoers are true Christians.  Just because a person goes to church, that doesn’t automatically make him or her a true Christian.

Just because you go to the beach, that doesn’t make you a lifeguard!

Just because you get into a boat, that doesn’t make you a fisherman.

Also, just because you walk into a sheepfold, that doesn’t mean you are already a sheep.  Some are actually wolves in sheep’s clothing. (Matthew 7:15)

Likewise, just because you go to church, that doesn’t automatically make you a true Christian.

When Jesus came to Earth the 1st time, religious leaders like the Pharisees went to “church", and played church, but Jesus said they were not justified or saved. (Luke 18:9-14)

Jesus said that the Pharisees went to the temple to pray, pay tithe (a tenth of their income), and fast twice a week; but in fact they were not justified or saved. (Luke 18:9-14)

In fact, the Pharisees were:

self-righteous, (Luke 18:9-14), thinking they were justified/saved when in fact they are not!
arrogant,(Luke 18:9-14)
covetous, (Luke 16:14 KJV)
self-exalting, (Matt 23:12)
hypocrites, devourer of widows’ houses. (Matt 23:13-14)

Jesus said the Pharisees were full of greed, self-indulgence, spiritually blind. (Matt 23:25-26 NIV Bible)
On the inside, the Pharisees are full of greed and self-indulgence.(Matt 23:25 NIV)
Most importantly, Jesus said that the Pharisees are brood of vipers, not justified or saved(Luke 18:14), and headed toward hell. (Matt 23:33, NIV)

The Pharisees wanted to be baptized by water, but they don’t want to repent! (Matt 3:1-8)
They want religion, but they don’t want repentance and relationship with Jesus. They just want to play church.(Sounds alot like so many of today’s churchgoers and fake Christians!)

I repeat, just because a person goes to church, that doesn’t make him/her a true Christian.

Now, let me ask you this question.  First, are you in any way like the Pharisees?

I mean, are you self-righteous, arrogant, covetous, money-minded, full of greed and self-indulgence?  Have you ever repented of your sins before you got baptized in water? (There are at least 35 New Testament scriptures that requires a person to repent BEFORE he/she can be saved or justified.)

Do you want to repent and have a real relationship with Jesus, or you just want to play church like the Pharisees did?

If you are serious about wanting to repent and have a real relationship with Jesus, then you need to read and understand:  What is the pure gospel of Jesus Christ?

“True and False Christian Test”

What is true revival?
https://repent-pray-revival.org/2020/06/15/what-is-true-revival-2/

“Without the true gospel and revival, there will be more false gospel churches and false Christians than true gospel churches and true Christians. The false Christians and the non-Christians will continue to love self, love sin, hate God, hate God’s holiness despise God, desire money, sex, and power. They will remain unrepentant, continue to drink iniquity like water, not realizing God’s severity and the reality of hell.” -Johnson and Pearl
