The definite objective in Gospel Light’s work of examining the general history and doctrine of religions in America, with particular attention to those with cult-like attributes, is to bring to light their detrimental effect upon the eternal salvation of our neighbors and friends. Most people in today’s society are unfamiliar with the true Word of God and the way to heaven, having neither interest nor education with these spiritual matters. (Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6.) Thus cults can have profound influence upon the uninformed and the naive. Having been brainwashed into believing all religions are equally valid, most Americans have overlooked plain and simple logic. Among the many faiths, each of which claims to be the only truth, in reality only one can be “true” because they contradict each other. This is even more significant when dealing with the doctrine of salvation, for this is where the rubber meets the road.
The real tragedy of false teachings, whether from a main line religion or a small cult, is when people are misdirected or deceived as to how to obtain life after death. It is easy to deceive an uninformed public, to utilize ceremonies and doctrines that appeal to the flesh in controlling their spiritual beliefs. It is in a sea of misinformation, with Satan’s hindering influence, that Gospel Light struggles to reach our unsaved brothers and sisters. Our efforts to seek out the lost and show them God’s truth through the inspired Word is continually troubled by wicked enemies with vile motives. Yet, unless this be done, souls will perish needlessly. For those with the profound and fundamental knowledge of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection and the gospel of grace, the failure to reach out is an act of moral negligence. We must as Christians acknowledge the importance of individual evangelism, not resting upon the efforts of others. This is an issue of highest importance with eternal consequences.Note: Brother Gabriel is leading a team of volunteers to head to the Public Market this Saturday to spread the Word.
