|Without the understanding
of the real Biblical Gospel,
it is the lost leading the lost.
Do not be devoured by those
who have cast away the understanding
of the Gospel for the second time,
first after the Apostles,
and now after the Reformers:
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge?
who eat up my people as they eat bread,
and call not upon the LORD.
(Psalm 14:4 KJV)
Most of the thousands of denominations
have cast away the real Biblical Gospel,
and those few who have not,
have so clouded up that Gospel,
that people just end up
trusting in their own "righteousness" anyway.
Turing away from the real Biblical Gospel
is the worst folly possible:
people may profess with the mouth
to believe the truth,
but with their heart they disregard Christ
by disregarding his Gospel :
The fool hath said in his heart,
There is no God.
They are corrupt,
they have done abominable works,
there is none that doeth good.
Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses,
so do these also resist the truth:
men of corrupt minds,
reprobate concerning the faith.
But they shall proceed no further:
for their folly shall be manifest unto all men,
as theirs also was.
(2 Timothy 3:8-9)
Paul in Romans 3 verses 10 thru 12
is referring to Psalm 14 verses 1 thru 3,
and makes it clear in the verse before,
that the Scripture describes the whole world:
What then? are we better than they?
No, in no wise: for we have before proved
both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
There is none that understandeth,
there is none that seeketh after God.
They are all gone out of the way,
they are together become unprofitable;
there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
But in the real Biblical Gospel,
the righteousness of God is revealed,
the righteousness of Christ
that Christ reckons to us as though it were ours,
when he gives us faith to trust him
to be righteous for us for salvation;
and that is the way Christ saves all that he saves:
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation
to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed
from faith to faith: as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.
Even the righteousness of God
which is by faith of Jesus Christ
unto all and upon all them that believe:
for there is no difference:
For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God;
But to him that worketh not,
but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly,
his faith is counted for righteousness.
Even as David also describeth
the blessedness of the man,
unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
