The Gospel of Inclusion…

2 Feb


Galatians 1:8-9, “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.”

The Gospel of Inclusion is a New Age belief, made popular by Bishop Carlton Pearson a Minister in the United Church of Christ. Pearson who around the turn of the new millinium began to teach a very distorted take on the finished work of Christ at Calvary. This doctrine states that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, granted salvation to all men and women whether they realize it or not, this “Gospel,” states that one does not have to believe in Christ to be saved because Power of the Cross totally engulfs all Humanity without the need for them to believe or repent of sin. Followers of this dangerous teaching also do not believe in Hell being a literal place of torment, but rather a state of conciousness that we put ourselves in by not putting all our Faith in God. On His website Minister Pearson wrote, “A person who spends every day getting drunk, will ruin their health, marriage, family, and career; they will make their lives a living Hell. But that still falls far short of the chronic alcoholic being condemned by a just God to literally burn in Hell forever and ever.” This is very dangerous teaching because if true, their is no need for Holy living. If we are all justified and do not have to repent of our sins, why not just live life the way that we want to, indulging in every sin before we are called into perfect living by God. If their is no Hell, then the Bible cannot be the true Word of God because in Matthew 25:41, it clearly states, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” Also in Revelation 20:10, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” It is true, that the Cross of Christ did indeed justify all of Mankind, but only upon Their recognition and need to be born again through the Cross, John 3:7, and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the sacrificial Lamb of God for all sin Acts 16:30-31. The Cross is all inclusive but it is only through the small doorway of Jesus Christ, Matthew 7:13-14 reads, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” I pray that all keep a Spiritual ear towards sound Biblical Doctrine, and pray for those who have fell by the wayside such as Minister Pearson and His “gospel,” that Love of Christ will once again convict His heart, Shalom…
