Are you preaching the true gospel or are you trying to persaude men? The Gospel that Paul preached was it of men? Did Paul received it from men? Was the Gospel taught to Paul by men? Please back up all comments with the scriptures!
Pastor You have opened a can of worms on this one.... 2 Timothy 4: 1-4 charges us that there was coming a time when people would not endure or receive sound doctrine...we are in that time. Because of this churches of all denominations have begun to water down the gospel to increase their membership neglecting what the Father has called us to do.
To answer your original question about Paul's Gospel I will use one passage of scripture although their are many put this spells it out to me:
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother.
20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.
21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:
23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
24 And they glorified God in me.
John 3:17 - God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.
