If you preach another gospel there is a very important question that needs to be asked and in today’s society like in Sodom and Gomorra this question is taboo because it will lead to the light and no false preacher or teachers wants you to know the truth and that is why no one asks WHY?
So why do we have a heresy such as easy believism and the answer has a duality but is very simple and that is it drives numbers to the church and it gives the pastor and is doorknockers a false sense of importance, they are winning souls they think. So for this concept to work you need a glue to cement it and that is the man made doctrine of once saved always saved.
I can with confidence declare that once saved always saved is a doctrine of devils and for this statement I refer to Hebrews 6:4-6 it says if you have been saved and then return to the world will not be able to store to repentance again and you are lost forever. Next look at 1 Corinthians 6:9 and see that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God!
So if you are saved and return to the world there is no more hope for you so once saved always saved is a lie. We can add more verses about willful sinning but how many verses do you need because for me one negative word from God is enough, if it is unacceptable for God I say amen!
So, with easy believism you drive membership and to make this lie work when the questioning starts you add once saved always saved to the mix and immediately itchy ears will hear because show me one sinner who does not love the justification of their sin, once you are saved you can return to your vomit like the dog in 2 Peter 2:20, well as we saw in Hebrews 6 the answer is no.
Now many will say well we are all sinners and we sin and yes that is true but we are not to return to the world and partake of the world for we will lose our salvation as we just saw, and today most denominations has made the world part of the church and all you need to do is look at the LBGT fiasco, talk about supporting the world!
Ok, now many will say that well easy believism cemented by once saved and backed up by preaching tithes is a great little money spinner as the easy believism draws the crowds and then the once saved always saved gives justification and allows the holier than holy attitude, but then the kicker is tithing the money maker. The marketing concept complete!
Now many will say that well this is not really working out for those that use this marketing strategy as their numbers are low, like the Baptist so why? Well the answer is simple and when we look at the mega church and a man like Joel Osteen we see that he understands the marketing concept perfectly. Joel realizes that people need not be reminded of their sin nor of the consequence of sin so he judges no one he does not even let God judge through His word, no our Joel writes some self-help books and tells the congregation of Satan that they must be all they can be and do it for themselves and TADA!
The Baptist preaches hell and with the first part of their marketing strategy it leads to circular reasoning and question that that leads to un-Biblical answers and this in turn leads to enlightenment as people turn to the word of God and through the hearing of the word comes faith and through faith comes understanding and God will give you the wisdom for wisdom is not yours but like faith it is another free gift from God, God and His word and the salvation and forgiveness offered to you is and will always be free!
