MAKING DISCIPLES

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves (Mt 23.15) ."

Christ commands us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, teaching them to observe all things he has commanded us (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20). But we are preaching and teaching a 'plan of salvation' instead of the gospel and exporting it abroad.

The Evangelicals have taken the gospel away from the people, substituting their own gospel for it and the Catholics don't believe in preaching the gospel with their mouth. St. Francis said, "Preach the gospel to every creature, if necessary use words." But it is necessary to use words! The Apostle Paul, who wrote half of the New Testament, wrote that we must utter the gospel with our mouth (See Eph 6.19-20 and Col 4.3-4). Because of these errors in doctrine the gospel is not being preached as it ought to be and we are making false disciples here at home and abroad.

The evangelical's 'plan of salvation' can only be preached from a pulpit (See PLAN OF SALVATION on www.preach-the-gospel.org) which explains why their missionaries cross land and sea and make only one proselyte, twofold more the child of hell than themselves (See Mt 23.15 above.). It doesn't take four years of seminary to preach the gospel. Anybody willing to place it on their lips can tell the good news. Satan is smirking. Because the gospel is not being preached he has more time to kill, steal and destroy (Jn 10.10) (See THE BIG LIE on www.preach-the-gospel.org). The Plan of Salvation has leavened the whole lump (See Mt 16.6 and Gal 5.9).

The gospel according to the scriptures is -"Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." By telling it to others in person with our mouth (preaching it ) we turn the world right-side up and speed the return of Christ (See IMAGINE and THE BLESSED HOPE on www.preach-the-gospel.org). To preach the gospel simply ask another if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.) and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." Telling it to others saves them the instant they believe on Christ (See Jn 6.47, Acts 16.31, Rom 1.16, 1 Cor 1.21 & 4.15 and Eph 6.19).

Let's not be deceived by the so-called church's false doctrine (Mt 15.14). Instead we must do the work of telling others the good news (preaching the gospel) and teaching them that believe to do the same (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20).

For encouragement to preach the gospel and to teach others to do so read a one-page paper each day on www.preach-the-gospel.org.
