Sincerity Is Not Safe

Sincerity Is Not Safe

 Picture this scenario...
Let it saturate your mind...
A man stands on a cliff's steep edge
And this man is blind.
Not sure of his direction,
He calls, "Where do I go from here?"
Someone says, "It doesn't matter
As long as you're sincere."
At this point it's not about
Sincerity at all.
Truth alone will keep him safe...
Only truth prevents a fall!
This is just an illustration
But when your very soul's at stake
You should use spiritual precaution
To prevent any mistake.
Some say the road to hell is paved
With every good intention.
There is this gospel and that gospel
And too many more to mention.
But these can serve no purpose
To the Kingdom of our Lord.
For only in The Cross can we
Expect Heaven as our reward.
The gospel has been watered down...
Been changed and been distorted.
The Apostle Paul wrote this would be
Before it even started.
He warned if worded different...
If one preached another Christ...
We wouldn't fall into this trap
If we heeded his advice.
He explained about deception...
How even Satan could transform
Into an angel being of light
To cause the gospel harm.
The lady with the talk show,
Although good in her own way,
Has bought into this botched belief
And leads many souls astray.
Our safety's in the scriptures...
Our hope is in The Cross.
We cannot tiptoe through the trends
Without suffering great loss.
So our thoughts must stay on Jesus...
Our eyes upon His face.
Our guide must be the Bible
Our goal to anchor in God's Grace.

"But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve through
his subtilty, so your minds should
be corrupted from the simplicity
that is in Christ.
For if he that cometh preacheth
another Jesus, whom we have not
preached, or if you receive another
spirit, which ye have not received,
or another gospel, which ye have not
accepted, ye might well bear with him.
2 Corinthians 11:3-4

"And no marvel; for Satan himself is
transformed into an angel of light..."
2 Corinthians 11:14

"But though we, or an angel from
heaven, preach any other gospel
unto you than that which we have
preached unto you, let him be accursed"
Galatians 1:8

"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not
redeemed with corruptible things, as
silver and gold, from your vain conversations
received by tradition from your fathers:
But with the precious blood of Christ, as
a lamb without blemish and without spot..."
1 Peter 1:18-19

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but
try the spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out
into the world."
1 John 4:1

"We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth
us; he that is not of God heareth not us.
Hereby know we the spirit of truth and the
spirit of error."
1 John 4:6

"If we receive the witness of men, the
witness of God is greater, fot this is
the witness of God which he hath testified
of his Son.
He that believeth on the Son of God hath
the witness in himself: he that believeth
not, God hath made him a liar: because he
believeth not the record that God gave of
his Son.
And this is the record, that God hath given
to us eternal life and this life is in his Son.
He that hath the Son hath life, and he that
hath not the Son of God hath not life."
1 John 5:9-12
