Are There 2 Gospels?

Are There 2 Gospels?
By David J. Stewart

Romans 4:5, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”

My question to you is:

Are there 2 Gospels?

  1. The false gospel of John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, Paul Washer, Jack Chick, Aiden Tozer, David Cloud, and others; require a person forsake (or be willing to forsake) their lifestyle of sin, make amends, and change their ways, as a prerequisite to saving faith. This false gospel confuses the FRUIT of a changed life with the ROOT of saving-faith. The sinner is required to change their own life. Believing is not enough, the sinner must commit to stopping all their sins to be saved. This is a false gospel.

  2. The Biblical gospel teaches that sinners are saved solely by Christ's righteousness, and that no self-righteousness of any kind is required, because we have none to offer (Isaiah 64:6); neither does a person have to quit any sin to be saved. A changed life is the FRUIT of genuine repentance, and not a part of the ROOT of saving-faith. We don't give up our sins to BE saved; but rather, we give up our sins because we ARE saved. God makes the changes. Our part is simply to believe, God does the rest. Romans 4:5 teaches that a person's faith is COUNTED for righteousness!

One's salvation is solely based in Christ's righteousness and God's PROMISES (Titus 1:2), having absolutely nothing to do with a sinner's desire to cease from committing sins. Lordship Salvationists place the cart before the horse. Romans 4:5-6 plainly teaches that salvation is without works of self-righteousness, and that the ungodly are saved by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ (2nd Corinthians 5:21). Salvation is of the Lord.

A changed life is the FRUIT of genuine repentance (James 2:18-21); and not a part of the ROOT of saving faith (Romans 4:5-6). Abraham was saved in Genesis 15:6 when he believed upon the Lord; but Abraham's faith was demonstrated in Genesis 22:10 when he offered up his son Isaac in obedience to God. A person gives up their sins because they ARE a Christian; and not to BECOME a Christian. The changed life comes AFTER a person is saved, as a person grows in the milk of the Word (1st Peter 2:2).

A lot of Christians have brushed the issue aside as a matter of semantics, but the difference between the 2 Gospels is day and night. One includes a certain degree of self-righteousness, which is a false gospel; but the other is solely based upon Christ's righteousness and God's PROMISE, which is by the precious literal, physical, blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Salvation is not something that we do to get; it is a gift that we receive to have.
