We know that the Bible teaches that nothing can be done to earn salvationâ€¦but our Lord says if you are going to follow Him it is going to cost you something. Many churches today and many preachers are teaching another gospel. A gospel that says or implies that you can be saved and yet not be a disciple. Often implying that you can go to Heaven and yet live like hell. A lot of modern day Christianity teaches that there areâ€ťtwo classesâ€ť of Christiansâ€¦â€ťregular and high testâ€ťâ€¦ Normal Christians and Super Saints.
This is a perverted gospel. The late missionary, James A. Stewart said, â€śSo great has been the perversion that many congregations are astounded when they hear the true Gospel of the Lordship of Christ. They believe that we are preaching a new gospel.â€ť
