The True Gospel Versus False Gospels.

Below Are The Marks Of The True Gospel And The Marks Of The False Gospels.


  • Teaches That The Source Of The Gospel Is God.

Galatians 1:11-12 (NIV) says I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.”

  • Knows That Life Is Obtained Through Death; We Trust In The God Who Loved Us And Died For Us So That We Might Die To Sin And Live For Him.

Galatians 2:20 (NIV) says I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

  • Explains That All Believers Have The Holy Spirit Through Faith.

Galatians 3:14 (NIV) says He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.”

  • Declares That We Cannot Be Saved By Keeping Laws; The Only Way Of Salvation Is Through Faith In Christ, Which Is Available To All.

Galatians 3:21-22 (NIV) says Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.”

  • Says That All Believers Are One In Christ, So There Is No Basis For Discrimination Of Any Kind.

Galatians 3:26-28 (NIV) says So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

  • Proclaims That We Are Free From The Grip Of Sin And That The Holy Spirit’s Power Fills And Guides Us.

Galatians 5:24-25 (NIV) says Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.”


  • Treats Christ’s Death As Meaningless.

Galatians 2:21 (NIV) says I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”

  • Says People Must Obey The Law In Order To Be Saved.

Galatians 3:12 (NIV) says The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, ‘The person who does these things will live by them.’”

  • Tries to find favor With God by obeying certain rituals.

Galatians 4:9-11 (NIV) says But now that you know God—or rather are known by God—how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable forces? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again? You are observing special days and months and seasons and years! I fear for you, that somehow I have wasted my efforts on you.”

  • Counts On Keeping Laws To Erase Sin.

Galatians 5:2-4 (NIV) says Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.”

Trying to be saved by keeping the law and being saved by grace are two entirely different approaches. “Christ will be of no value to you at all” means that Christ’s provision for our salvation will not help us if we are trying to save ourselves.

Obeying the law does not make it any easier for God to save us. All we need to do is accept His gracious gift through faith. Our deeds of service must never be used to try to earn God’s love or favor.

John 3:16 (NIV) says For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
