MANY DO NOT REALIZE THAT “SOUND DOCTRINE” CONFORMS TO THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” THAT WAS ENTRUSTED TO THE APOSTLE PAUL BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. (1Tim 1:11) “Sound doctrine that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me”.
THE APOSTLE PAUL EXPLICITLY SAID THAT THE GOSPEL THAT HE PREACHED TO THE GENTILES CAME FROM THE EXALTED CHRIST HIMSELF.
(Gal 1:11-12) “I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.”
IN FACT, HE CONSIDERED HIS LIFE WORTH NOTHING TO HIM IF ONLY HE CAN FINISH THE TASK OF TESTIFYING TO THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE.”
(Act 20:24) However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the Gospel of God’s Grace.
HE FURTHER CLARIFIED THAT THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” WAS REVEALED TO HIM BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS KEPT SECRET SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN BUT NOW MADE MANIFEST FOR THE OBEDIENCE TO THE FAITH; OBEDIENCE TO THE DOCTRINE OF GOD’S GRACE.
(Rom 16:25-26) Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith—
THE APOSTLE PAUL EVEN PRONOUNCED A CURSE TO ANYONE WHO PREACHES A GOSPEL OTHER THAN THE ONE REVEALED TO HIM BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
(Gal 1:8) “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!”
TODAY, THE “BOOK OF ROMANS” WRITTEN BY THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS CONSIDERED AS THE “MAGNA KARTA” FOR CHRISTIANITY.
DOES THE DOCTRINE OF YOUR CHURCH CONFORM TO THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” REVEALED BY JESUS CHRIST TO THE APOSTLE PAUL?
REMEMBER, THE PHARISEES KNOW THE OLD TESTAMENT AND OBEYED THE LAW TO THE LETTER AND YET JESUS SAID, “YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE!”
THE TRUTH THAT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS TALKING ABOUT IS THE TRUTH OF GOD’S GRACE.
(Rom 6:17-18) “But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching (didache/doctrine) to which you were entrusted. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.”
THE QUESTION YOU NEED TO ANSWER IS, DO YOU KNOW THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” THAT CHRIST REVEALED TO THE APOSTLE PAUL AND WAS TAUGHT TO THE GENTILES?
