Summary: The gospel that saves is different from the other gospels that we are warned not to believe in. They still offer a popular message.

The gospel of your salvation

Eph 1:13 in whom ye also, having heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation,-- in whom, having also believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,

How important is this word of truth in ensuring a gospel leading to salvation?!

Gal 1:6-8 I marvel that ye are so quickly removing from him that called you in the grace of Christ unto a different gospel; which is not another gospel only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach unto you any gospel other than that which we preached unto you, let him be anathema.

The lies of the other gospel …. the one not based on the word of truth.

1. You can be saved based on moral values

Rom 3:12 They have all turned aside, they are together become unprofitable; There is none that doeth good, no, not, so much as one:

Rom 3:23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

Jer 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

Jesus words to the scribes and the Pharisees in Mathew 23 is a clear example of how men can score high on moral values but low on the gospel message.

Still a gospel but not the gospel of salvation.

2. You can be saved while still standing in the middle

Jam 1:8 a double minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Jam 4:4 Ye adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore would be a friend of the world maketh himself an enemy of God.

Jer 7:9-11 Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods that ye have not known, and come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered; that ye may do all these abominations? Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it, saith Jehovah.

Jer 7:28 truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

Luk 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Luk 11:23 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

A Christian in the middle like a student without a school, a soldier without an army ….

1Ki 18:21 And Elijah came near unto all the people, and said, How long go ye limping between the two sides? if Jehovah be God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

Still a gospel but not the gospel of salvation.

3. You can be saved by just hearing a lot

Pro 29:1 He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

Eze 33:31-33 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but do them not; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their gain. And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument; for they hear thy words, but they do them not. And when this cometh to pass, (behold, it cometh,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
