Greetings: The greatest conspiracy in all of Scripture surrounds the existence of two gospel messages in your New Testament. The major denominations have blended the two gospels together to create a ‘man-made’ gospel that God sent to NOBODY. John the Baptist, Christ and the Twelve preached Gospel #1 below, while Paul’s “my gospel” (Rom. 2:16, etc.) is Gospel #2 totally separate from the “gospel of the kingdom.” Terral [Edited by Don W]
Flyer >> There are four gospels in the New Testament. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. That's it. It's been that way for 1700 years.
“Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures . . .”. 1Corinthians 15:1-4.
“In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation--having also believed, you were sealed in Him (one baptism = 1Cor. 12:13) with the Holy Spirit (One Spirit) of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of His glory.” Ephesians 1:13-14.
Greg >> It seems you have studied this for years and present it very well. It has me very interested in reading your post and hope I can study them some more this weekend while I am off work but my computer has gone for good at home.
Greg >> I printed some of your post and charts off so that I can read them tomorrow. I think you may have planted a seed in my mind as some of these theories seem to make sense to me after reading them a couple of times.
Greg >> It looks to be a very extensive study on your part and thanks for sharing your views. I keep waiting at work to read your other posts when I am not busy and have the time!
Harp >> I can't find the right words to open this post so I'm just going to 'go with the flow' and let you know that I have been reading this entire topic of yours plus the other comments for the past hour. I have a lot of thoughts regarding this topic, but for now I'll keep this as short as possible-or try to.
Harp >> Paul's Gospel is one that cause's a great confusion. It never fails, that every single time I, myself began reading Corinthians I back track through the Bible or ask for confirmation from the Holy Spirit for understanding. A great deal of what Paul teaches can be viewed as contradicting to what Jesus taught.
Harp >> Let's just look at this as the mind of a child would or in layman's terms: You have stated that there are (2) Gospel's. One which Jesus teaches. One which Paul teaches, and termed as such, certainly gives off that impression.
Harp >> Keeping in line with the OP-there are actually more than 2 and yet there is only 1. This is very confusing to/for the Spirit or should I state, confusing to the mind as I'm sure the Spirit understands all of this completely.
Harp >> What I mean by the above is that the Bible from beginning to end is not unlike a song, the chords change and the beat goes slow then faster, but the song remains the same. The Bible is ONE Gospel.

Heh . . . That is because you have absolutely nothing to offer beyond your unbelief . . .
My writing is directed at ‘believers’ and nobody is forcing anything on anybody . . .

My suggestion to you Terrel is get off the road and back on the playground. Your heart is in it and your words are wise and you love our Savior, no doubt! However this is what can happen when man goes above the law or bypasses the Holy Spirit and simply relies on wisdom. This very thing is warned of through and through the Bible.
Annie >> Terral - I second HarpStrings advice and hope you realize what that means, if you truly look to the Lamb's book of Life for guidance.
