The New Jesus



Beware of the New Jesus

A new Jesus

is slipping into our churches.

___


The real Jesus doesn’t change.

His standards don’t change.


The New Jesus

Many people in the world (and some in the church) are promoting a Jesus who never lived on earth.


The new Jesus is a false Jesus. 



The new Jesus changes with the times.

The new Jesus has changed his opinion about certain sins.

The new Jesus is tolerant toward sin.


The new Jesus says:

“I love you, and you can live any

way you want and

still go to heaven.”



But the Words of the real Jesus

clearly show us that is not true.


Jesus clearly tells us in Matthew 7:22 below

about the horrible future

of many people

that we know and love.


Jesus said:

Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,'
shall enter the kingdom of heaven,
but he who does the will of My father in heaven.


Many will say to Me in that day
'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name,
cast out demons in Your name,
and done many wonders in Your name?'


And then I will declare to them,
'I never knew you;
depart from Me you who practice lawlessness!"

Matthew 7:21-23 NKJV


___


Lawless 

Not governed by  - or obedient to -  the rules and laws of God


Jesus said in verse 22:



"Depart from Me you who practice lawlessness."


Jesus is telling us:

Those who have accepted
Him as their Lord,
will not practice lawlessness.


Jesus is telling us:


A person who loves God will sin sometimes

but that person is still dedicated

to being obedient to God.


A person who loves God will not practice lawlessness.

___


How do you know

if you are Going to Heaven?


The little book of 1 John

near the end of the Bible

answers that question.


1 John 2:3-6 says -


3 And how can we be sure that we belong to him?

By looking

within ourselves:

Are we really trying to do what he wants us to?


4 Someone may say, “I am a Christian;

I am on my way to heaven;

I belong to Christ.”

But if he doesn’t do what Christ tells him to, he is a liar.


5 But those who do what Christ tells them

to will learn to love God more and more.

That is the way to know whether or not

you are a Christian.


6 Anyone who says he is a Christian

should live as Christ did.


The above verse,

is talking about a person who is trying

to obey God.


The verse is NOT talking about the need to be

a perfect person.

~

Jesus said

in Matthew 14:23 says,

"If you love me, you will obey me."

~

Jesus is calling people to repent.


Jesus came to earth

to call people to repentance

and Jesus came to be the offering for sin.

The new Jesus says:

“You don’t have to try to obey
the words in the Bible.”







The new Jesus says:

“I need to be your Savior,
but you don’t have to make me your Lord.”


~ ~ ~


The new Jesus says:


“Wide is the way to heaven.

Most people go to heaven.”



But Jesus says in Matthew 7:14:


Narrow is the way to heaven

and few find it.


Narrow is the way


God tells us that

The road to heaven is NARROW.

The road to Hell is WIDE.



In Luke it says:

Then one said to Him [Jesus],


"Lord, are there few who are saved?"


And He [Jesus] said to them,


"Strive to enter through the narrow gate,
for many, I say to you,
will seek to enter and will not be able."

Luke 13:23-24 NKJV



If Jesus is telling us the truth,
then many people that we love
are in deep trouble.




Tolerance


The new Jesus wants us to be tolerant toward sin.

The new Jesus says being tolerant toward sin is called love.

___


The REAL Jesus never taught tolerance,

instead he taught real love.


Real love speaks the truth of the Bible.


Real Love speaks the truth

  while always honoring the one we are talking to.


Love never makes a person feel small and insignificant.


Jesus told us to TEACH the things he taught us.

We cannot do that if we practice tolerance.


Jesus said,

"Therefore go and make disciples in all the nations,

baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son

and of the Holy Spirit, and then

teach these new disciples

to obey all the commands

I have given you..."

Matthew 28:19-20 TLB


Video:
Which Jesus do you Serve?


The following video looks at the subject of this page in a different way than I do.


The following video is complementary
(and I believe helpful)
to the full discussion of the topic of this page.



This video is about the differences between

The Historical Jesus and the Real Jesus


I have been contrasting the Real Jesus with the New Jesus.

So after listening to him, I'd say there are three Jesus'.


The video starts off with a bang.

Get ready!


The Historical Jesus vs. the Real Jesus



Disclaimer: I do not know this speaker,
but I agree with the above video


We must Follow the Real Jesus!



Many church leaders are becoming "enlightened"

and deciding to follow the new Jesus.

They are falling into the trap of the devil.

~ ~ ~

I have a seminary degree.

I've lived a long time.

I have only recently heard people preach and teach on the

New Jesus.


Beware



People who follow the new Jesus

will one day die

and realize

that the new Jesus

could not save them from suffering in hell.





The Bereans



The Bible teaches us to be like the Bereans

in Acts 17:11.


Each of us need to imitate the Bereans.


The Bereans took everything Paul said

and checked it against the Old Testament scriptures.

And

We are to check with the Bible before
accepting what someone tells us.


We are to follow the Bible - not follow our beloved pastor or our friends or our family members.

~ ~ ~

We are to be the light that speaks the truth,
even if everyone else refuses to listen.


Noah and his family - eight people - got on the ark.


Theologians believe there was well over
a million people on the earth at that time.


We must live for Jesus and

get in the ark of the Lord

even if no one follows.


"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus
shall suffer persecution."

2 Timothy 3:12 KJV



More Ungodly Beliefs


There are a growing number of people who

call themselves "Christians" but are not.

These people

actually believe one or more of the following:

 

The following are   FALSE   statements


“There are many different ways to heaven.”


“All gods are really the same.
There is only one God, but he goes by many names and
is worshipped by many religions.”


“You don’t have to take the name ‘Christian’ to follow Jesus.
You can stay in your religion and practice its tenets.”


 “Everyone who says “Jesus is Lord” is my Christian brother or sister regardless of who that person actually thinks
God the Father and Jesus are."

 
For example:
Mormons say that God the Father was once a man on another planet, and Mormons still call themselves Christians.

"You must say 'Jesus is Lord' but besides that, it doesn't matter what you believe about Jesus.
You can believe that Jesus isn't God's son and part of the trinity."


“God would never send anyone to hell”


“Only really bad people go to hell.” 





Something to Think about


Note that

Many churches are now

becoming more concerned

about saving the environment

than they are about

saving souls.



Beware


Beware of the New Jesus.


The real Jesus doesn’t change.


His standards don’t change.


Jesus won’t change to accommodate you.


Jesus won’t change to enable you to go to heaven.

One Final Thought:

The New Jesus takes the

beauty of purity

out of the Gospel.
