These are indeed strong words. The article below is by Arthur W. Pink, who is know worldwide for his Studies in the Scriptures from which many, many large and small books have been published.
But we want TRUTH, do we not? You can know that something is wrong when the majority of what Christians believe today is a long way, even sometimes opposite, from what the majority of Christians believed even 200 and 400 years ago. And that bespeaks of what the Bible calls a "falling away" in the last days.
Today, some of the best-known and most popular preachers on TV paint a gospel and tell people that Jesus died for every son of Adam; the He wants and is trying to save every son of Adam; that He died for every sin of every son of Adam,--so that it you end up in hell, it will not be for your sins, but because "you did not believe in Jesus." According to them, this new gospel, since Christ died for every sin for every person, then the only thing that now will take you to hell is to reject Christ.
But I am bold to say that is NOT true; that is "another gospel," and it is NOT according to Christ's own words! Hence, just what or WHICH "Jesus" are they saying to believe in? One that the Bible does NOT reveal; even one of their own fantasies! A savior of their own imagination! You don't believe it? Well, just search the Scriptures and especially engage Jesus Himself to describe His accomplished work HIMSELF! You can even bypass these pages here and get a "red-letter" edition of the Bible and study the words of the Lord Jesus Christ.
For example, IF so many popular preachers are right in saying that there is now only ONE sin that will carry a person to hell, the sin of rejecting Christ, then explain WHY Jesus told many of the unbelieving Jews, "I go My way, and ye shall seek Me, and shall die in your SINS: whither I go, ye cannot come" (John 8:21). "And this is the Father's will which hath sent Me, that of all which He hath given Me I should lose NOTHING, but should raise it up again at the last day" (John 6:39).
It will be better to own up to and turn from error NOW than to go through life deceived and realize later that you have been "sold a bill of goods"--even Satan's lie, i.e. Satan's Gospel.
So if you are sincere, study what is here, and study the very Word of God who is the God of TRUTH. Yes, we see as through a glass darkly, but He has revealed Himself in His Word.
When all the dark clouds are blown away by the wind of truth, when the cobwebs are torn down, do you want to see a weak and failing Jesus who has no sovereign will that He can accomplish, a "Jesus" who failed more than He succeeded,--or do you want to see a strong, sovereign, successful and VICTORIOUS Lord Jesus Christ, the Almighty God who has all power in heaven and in earth? Indeed, Jesus who has lost NONE that were given to Him by the Father to SAVE!
NOTE: We are not saying that all the preachers who teach this gross error are bad men. I would like to think most are good men, but ignorantly deceived in some major errors, thus causing them to pervert the true gospel of God. They simply don't understand Christ aright. Their doctrine tickles the fancies of the natural mind. They don't bother to search out "historic Christianity" and what the Bible is REALLY saying about certain passages. For example, the verse that speaks of God not being willing that any should perish, He being "longsuffering to USWARD." They don't bother to see who that word is addressed to,--who ARE the "usward." Another misconception is that "God is not a respecter of persons." An Arminian twist and false interpretation is put on that, making it APPEAR that God really wants every son of Adam saved, even though it will NEVER be accomplished. They pervert this scripture too. And it IS true, that God does not save us by repecting our "persons." He does not bestow His grace based on our status in life, rich or poor or whether we come from royalty or from slave status. That is gloriously true.
Is there hope for such men? I know of one man who was nationally known years ago. He preached for about 25 years before he realized he had never really been born again, and that his Arminian doctrine was false. He repented and started preaching the true gospel of God and His sovereign and free grace in salvation. There IS hope. "Salvation is of the Lord." The knowledge of salvation is by revelation.
