Apostle Paul warns against those who preach a watered down Jesu


“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel which ye have not accepted ye might well bear with him.”

2 Corinthians 11:4

The Apostle Paul warns against those who preach a watered down Jesus, and a gospel that shys away from His hard sayings, simply because they run counter to the dominant values of the American middle class. Most congregations don’t want to hear that Jesus said that becoming His disciples requires radical giving away of our wealth; showing mercy to those on death row; and loving the enemies that threaten us; but that is what Jesus expect us to do. Red Letter Christians believe Jesus meant what He said, and said what He meant.
