2 Corinthians 5:19 - that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:20 - Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

We are here to preach the correct gospel to all who will listen........


1 Corinthians 1:17 - For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.


The gospel is not flowery words you make up but the one Paul was given in 1Corinthians 15:1-4

In so doing we glorify God and love Him who first loved us......

Blind guides teach what your post says--Jesus teaches the opposite--Matthew 7:21-23-- a worker of iniquity= a practice of sin or willfull sin= 99%
The bible says most want their ears tickled rather than truth.

You do know many have read the Bible through but have not understood it.......it must be rightly divided, and few know how to do that it seems. You CANNOT read the Bible like an ordinary book.......the meaning on those pages is largely hidden in plain sight.......most of the books are written to the Jews of OT days and is presented today as a history lesson for believers of today, a "how did we get here" summary.

No one said to read it like a book, nor to leave your comprehension/understanding at the door.
But what you believe should come from within, not through the few who make a certain claim.
