All Bible verses quoted are from the King James version of the Bible.
God left us with good news, He left on record through the Apostles and Prophets a clear understanding that the Gospel should not be deviated from, not added nor withdrawn from. Paul exclaims:
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Today there is no order within religious sects; only one groups saying, "we are right and another is wrong," many Churches do have "it" right, but many do not. What doctrine ought we utilize as Divine inspiration, the breath, the Word of God. The answers to these questions can be found in the answer book, the Bible. The first question we must answer is, what doctrine are we to go by? Joseph Smith, Muhammad; or possibly the smiling preachers who believe they should motivate proceeding a watered down Gospel? Well the Bible tells us specifically:
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Many have fallen by the wayside giving less heed to the relevancy of the doctrine taught in time past; of which was not a new Gospel, rather it was the Gospel; but (Paul said):
1 Corinthians 15:1
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
