The Apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians and warned them of the dangers of another gospel. “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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.” Galatians 1:6-8. Today there are other gospels being preached and many people are being deceived by them. Gospel means good news and there are many voices today that purport to preach good news, but they bring only deception.
The gospel of humanism is one example of a false gospel. This doctrine says that we are products of evolution and that we are constantly evolving into something higher. It is the worship of humanity as opposed to the worship of God. People are told to look into themselves and draw from an inner strength and become great. Eve had this desire in the garden when the devil tempted her to eat the fruit. He said, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5. The true Gospel says that we shall be as gods, but only if we are under the controlling influence of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13.
