The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were "turning to a different gospel," and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to "distort the gospel of Christ." These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the twenty-first century.
For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church's mission, followers of Christ need to ask, "What false gospels are being taught today?" and "How can I recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeits?" Answering these questions will be the aim of our WEBS study the four weeks following Thanksgiving.
We will consider the claims of Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including prosperity teaching that is so rampant across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this study, not only enabled to discern false gospels, but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and with peoples around the world.
The study is a video based study by David Platt. It is from the Secret Church simulcast broadcast back in April 2018.
David Platt is the Teaching Pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. Previously, he served as President of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. His ministry, Radical, is focused on awakening the church to deeper discipleship, evangelism and missions.
