Christ Jesus : “Watch out ! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in abundance of possessions.” Luke 12:15.
Cheap grace teacher : “No. Abundant life in Christ is an abundance of every good thing in life !”
Christ Jesus : “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes…You want to be with me because I fed you, not because you understood the miraculous signs. But don’t be concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you.” ” Luke 12:23-24. John 6:26-27 NLT.
Cheap grace teacher : “No. What the Body of Christ needs most is food first and not holiness for holiness will follow after you have food. It is the duty of Christ, the Good Shepherd, to give you food and rest first as promised in Psalms 23.”
Christ Jesus : “The seed on the rocky soil represents those who hear the message and immediately receive it with joy. But since they don’t have deep roots, they don’t last long. They fall away as soon as they have problems or are persecuted for believing God’s word.” Matt 13:20-21 NLT.
Cheap grace teacher : “No. Persecution and trouble will not happen to Christians for God will protect them. Persecution talked about by Christ referred only to the Jews during His time.”
Christ Jesus : “The seed that fell among the thorns represents those who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life and the lure of wealth, so no fruit is produced…(God will) cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit.” Matt 13:22-23; John 15:2 NLT.
Cheap grace teacher : “No. God wants to prosper Christians and He will empower them to get wealth.”
Christ Jesus : “Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that Day will not come on you suddenly like a trap.” Luke 21:34-35
Cheap grace teacher : “No. Christians are called to enjoy wealth, to enjoy health and to enjoy a life of victory.”
The false cheap grace teachers are deceptive in twisting the intent of Scripture for their own purpose in all their sermons with a corrupted replacement theology –
preaching that the blessings for Jews in the Old Testament are blessings for Christians today as well, but warning concerning hardship and persecution for Christians in the last days in the New Testament only concern the Jews in the early years of Christianity.
