I found this on the internet ‘The Two Minute Gospel’ – What is wrong with it?
You and I were originally intended to have a relationship with God. If we look back in the bible we find that God had a relationship with us in the Garden of Eden (Gen 1:27-31), but sin came into the world when man disobeyed God and ate fruit from a forbidden tree (Gen 2:8-25).
This is true!
God wants to have a relationship with me and you but he can’t stand sin. Many people would think of sin as murder etc. The bible teaches that we sin in thought and word and deed. So it is not what we do but also what we think. Oh no! That seems to cover all of us. (Rom 3:23). Imagine writing down all the things that we have done wrong in a big book. How many volumes would you or I get up too!
This is true!
God has a problem. He wants to have a relationship with you and me but he can’t because our sin cuts us off.
This is true!
However God provided a way so that our sins (the things we do that separate us from God) can be forgiven by coming down to earth in the form of Jesus. When Jesus was crucified on the cross he provided a way to allow our sins to be forgiven and restore our relationship with God. This is good news!! (John 3:16)
This is true!
Once we say we are sorry to God he will take away our sin and make us a brand new person (2 Cor 5:17), a Christian. He also gives us the free gift of Eternal Life. This means that when we die the next phase of our life begins, spending eternity with Jesus (John 27-29).
This is not true!
All they say is that you become a Christian. That eternal life is a free gift and that heaven awaits you because you say sorry to God.
What it does not say is that when you love and obey the Lord Jesus, both he and his Father come and make their home with you. Read what Jesus said on this matter. John 14:23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”
Now why don’t they say that?
It does not say that those who disobey the Lord Jesus, do so because they do not love him. Jesus went on to say. John 14:24 “Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.”
How can a person who does not love the Lord Jesus claim to be saved by him?
They can’t claim that and to do so proves them to be a liar and all liars are the children of the devil. Read what Jesus said to Lost Souls. John 8:44 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
Why then does the Lord Jesus give us who are saved commands that have to be obeyed, if we don’t have to obey them? An example from the mouth of Jesus. John 13:34 ‘A new command I [Jesus] give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’
Why then do we see Christians hating each other if they are saved?
Why then are we all to be judged for both the good and the bad that we do, if we who are saved are no longer under judgement? This is what the Apostle Paul said. 2 Corinthians 5:10 ‘For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due to us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.’
Notice that Paul said, “all” not “some”.
It’s simple, God’s moral law demands that we get rewarded when we obey it or punished when we disobey it. It’s not rocket science that is hard to understand.
Is it possible for Christians to go to hell?
It certainly is! Though not because Mike Hill says so. This is what the Lord said in
Matthew 7:20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognise them.
‘True and false disciples’
21 ‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?” 23 Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”
The Christians who go to hell are the ones who teach Lost Souls that they don’t have to obey the Lord Jesus Christ who is supposed to be their Saviour. They teach that doing the will of God is not compulsory once you have said sorry to God.
And why do they teach that?
They teach it because they believe it. And they believe it because they are Lost Souls themselves and thus have the mind of a Lost Soul. They do not have the mind of Christ that comes through living in a loving relationship with Him and his Father through the gift of the Holy Spirit of God.
Christianity without the Holy Spirit in control is just Man’s Religion and totally worthless when it comes to saving Lost Souls from Hell. In fact they are doing the work of the devil in stopping others from being saved.
The person who came up with the 2 minute gospel is in all probability a Lost Soul and thus unsaved. Or they just got it wrong because they have not learnt the truth yet.
