|Today’s Scripture: I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. Galatians 1:6-7|
|Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” He taught Himself as the only way to Heaven. All the religions of the world are based on man’s opinion on what he must do to appease the gods of that religion. God has provided eternal life through the death of Jesus Christ to pay for our sins; however, it didn’t take long for man to pervert the message of salvation as we see the Apostle Paul was already dealing with it to the Galatians.
However, many of these perversions of the gospel still continue today. Most of the cults come from changes to the Word of God, and many teachers in the main denominations also teach things that are contrary to God’s Word. The Roman Catholic Church has gone so far as to teach in direct contradiction to its own Bible.
Here are a few examples. The following Scripture quotations are taken from the Catholic Bible at Catholic.org. (New Jerusalem Version ©1985)
Let’s make sure our doctrines line up with the Word of God, or we, too, will end up in contradiction to the truth of God’s Word.
