Today’s Evangelical landscape reveals a chilling spectacle—a dismal reality where the very foundation of Christianity has been grossly diluted. This watered-down gospel, prevailing in the vast majority of what calls themselves “churches,” caters to a cultural craving for affirmation and comfort while discarding the inconvenient truths of Scripture. It’s a grueling scene where many so-called “churches” have surrendered their duty to equip, teach, and evangelize. Instead, they’ve embraced an ethos of entertainment and delusional self-help motivational preaching that distorts the true function of the Church making a mockery of its God-given call.

And because of this, tragically, Hell’s corridors are teeming with such “cultural Christians,” souls who once believed they were right with God. They were the charitable givers, the choir singers, and those who sat and ate with sinners under the guise of “sharing Jesus’ love.” However, theirs was a love, a false one, that tolerated and even affirmed sin while embracing a counterfeit Christ—a Christ who contradicts the Scriptures by condoning that which the Bible explicitly condemns.

Or perhaps they even spent their lives fighting against such things the Bible condemns—sexual immorality, abortion, child trafficking—yet never truly knew Christ. “This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me…(Isaiah 29:13)”

These sad souls often felt secure in their spiritual status because of outward acts: repeating a prayer, attending church, or participating in community service. Yet, such actions, devoid of true repentance and faith, are ineffectual. They represent a profound misunderstanding of what it means to follow Christ, mistaking the appearance of outward fruits of genuine faith for the root of salvation itself.

Against the backdrop of this spiritual crisis stands the unchangeable truth of the gospel, which begins and ends with the holiness of God. It’s a truth that confronts us with the unsettling reality of human sinfulness and our desperate state due to this inherent corruption. The gospel does not cringe in declaring that every person is a sinner by nature who stands condemned, not by arbitrary standards, but by the righteous and holy nature of God Himself.

However, the Gospel also reveals the remedy—Jesus Christ. He is not a mere historical figure or a prophet among many but God incarnate, fully divine and fully human. “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily…” (Colossians 2:9)

Christ led a sinless life, fulfilling every iota of the divine Law, and His sacrificial death on the cross paid the penalty for our sins. This act of love was confirmed by His victorious resurrection, affirming His power over sin and death.

Salvation, therefore, is not a commodity one can earn through good deeds or religious fervor. It is a gift, graciously bestowed upon all who genuinely turn from their sins and trust in the finished work of Christ alone. This true repentance and belief usher in a transformation of the heart, mind, and will that redefines one’s life—a departure from sin and a relentless pursuit of righteousness.

In this age of feel-good theology and churchianity, where truth is sacrificed on the altar of cultural relevance, a return to the authentic gospel is our only hope. A gospel that bends to the whims of the pagan culture and secular trends is a false gospel, one that only seeks to appease human indulgence rather than glorify God.

The true gospel is offensive to the world, the lost world, which hates us because of Christ. Will we embrace the indignation that comes with uncompromising truth, or will we settle for a counterfeit Christianity that ultimately leads to spiritual ruin? The answer we give to this question could not be of greater consequence.
