A certain writer said: “The Bible suffers more from its believers than from its opponents”. And it is that reality today our opponents do not resonate as strongly as those who “believe” in the Bible.Honestly, it is a pity to see everything that is happening in social networks, and is that there are thousands and thousands of people sharing videos of preachers who, without understanding and knowledge of the Lord, speak gibberish, making a lot of prohibitions about things that the Bible never prohibits.
Today many have taken the demand to say “what they believe is sin” as if they were gods. The Bible is the only word that has the power to tell us what is right and what is wrong.
The prevailing legalism is taking away a lot of territory as a church and we must put a stop to this. We must take the Bible to know what God’s good will is. Let us remember the apostle Paul when he wrote to the Galatians:
11 But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.
12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
The first thing is that Paul made it clear to the Galatians that the Gospel that he had preached to them was not something invented by man, it was not based on emotions or supposed superficial revelations, rather, the gospel that Paul had received had been revealed by Christ.
What gospel have you decided to believe? Do you believe in the legalistic gospel that is teached today, where they say things that the Bible does not say? Or do you believe in the gospel of the Bible?
It is time that in our churches we remember the true meaning of God’s grace, of God’s love, of the gospel of Jesus Christ, that we remove the veil, and that we stop preaching all those things that are not the gospel.
