The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” He pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the twenty-first century. For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission, followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?
We will consider the claims of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will also explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including rampant prosperity teaching across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this Secret Church not only enabled to discern false gospels but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and around the world. In Secret Church 18, Pastor David Platt teaches Christians how to recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeit gospels.
