I do know this...Mankind prefer the watered down Gospel..They want the emotional..for the moment feel good..Then after that passes ..what next.....Man is depraved today...Believing another Gospel..They do not want Christs Provision Alone..The want Faith Plus works...They want to be in charge of what the Believe he requires today(Its all about I will, I will, I will..They want to perform, they want to feel they have earned their position..They will not Trust Christ Alone..It is a sad sad day..
I agree that some do preach works, but also true is that others preach easy believism which is just a damning and any message that reject repentance is easy believism. Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus" (Romans 3:23, 24).
 
Prior to salvation, everyone is dead in trespasses and sin and by nature the children of wrath (Ephesians 2: I, 3). In this condition, the future holds only judgment and eternal punishment. However, God provided a remedy for our sin and its outcome by sending His Son to be a substitutionary sacrifice on our behalf (Romans 3:25). He paid the penalty for our sin and, therefore, redeemed or rescued us from our need to pay the penalty.
 
We truly have been bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:20). By shedding His blood, our Saviour paid the greatest price possible, and yet paid the only price that could meet God's requirement for righteousness. We have redemption through the blood of Christ, the forgiveness of our sins according to the riches of God's grace (Ephesians 1:7). As a result of this demonstration of righteousness, we have received the gift of righteousness (Romans 5:17).

By God's grace, Christ's death was our death, and His resurrection was our resurrection. God has made us alive together in Christ and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places (Ephesians 2:5, 6). This position is true for everyone who believes the gospel of our salvation (Romans 3:22; 5:8-10; I Corinthians 15: 1-4).
 
What should be our response to our redemption in Christ? Does our freedom from the penalty of sin give us a license to sin? God forbid! (Romans 6:1-11). On the contrary, our response should be to glorify God in our body,  presenting it as a living and holy sacrifice (Romans 6:13; 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 6:20).
"...to make all men see"(Ephesians 3:9)

We don't change God's message -- His message changes us.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
