"Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites...Full well you reject the commandment of God that you may keep your own tradition...making the word of God of none effect through your tradition (Mk 7.6-13)."

The scriptures state that a person is saved by believing on Christ (See 47 PASSAGES ON BELIEF on www.preach-the-gospel.org.) through the preaching of the gospel (Mk 16.15, Rom 1.16, 1 Cor 1.21 & 4.15). But the evangelical church has replaced the gospel with their 'plan of salvation' that can't be preached whereby a person is saved by a prayer. They have rejected the commandment of God, that they may keep their own tradition (Mk 7.9). Hypocrites!

They have replaced the gospel by their 'plan of salvation', hindering the preaching of the gospel (See THE SINNER'S PRAYER on www.preach-the-gospel.org). They teach that a person is saved through a prayer instead of by believing on Christ through the preached gospel as the scriptures declare. Christ commands us to "Preach the gospel (Mk 16.15)." not present the 'plan of salvation'. The gospel is clearly defined by the Apostle Paul - “Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (See 1 Cor 15.1-4.).” and it is easily preached by first asking another, "Have you heard the good news (Gospel means good news.)?"

Jesus commands us to - "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." Six and one half billion people in the world must have the gospel preached to them in person with our mouth before Christ will return and takes us to be with him for ever (Mk 16.15, 1 Cor 1.21, Mt 24.14&31 and 1 Thes 4.13-18) and the majority of them will never enter a church. We fulfil God's two greatest commands when we preach the gospel. We love God by obeying his command (Mk 12.30 & Jn 14.15) and we love our neighbor as ourself (James 2.8).” His command is - "Preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." We love our neighbor when we preach the gospel to them so that they might believe on Christ and be saved?

The church is full of hypocrisy because they have layed aside Christ's command, instead holding to their own tradition (Mk 7.9). Preach the gospel by asking others if they have heard the good news or declaring, "Good News" and telling them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day." then teaching them that believe to preach the gospel (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20). Let's start preaching the gospel and stop the hypocrisy!
