Gal 1:6-9

Well I had to back out of fellowship at a forum for a ministry that has been a great blessing to me. The bitterness, backbiting and "false convert" hunting was getting to me in a big way, but the last straw broke today. A brother in the Lord whom I have loved dearly indicated that Paul's Gospel 1 Cor 15:1-11 was not enough for salvation.

It breaks my heart. And I mean that.

I'm left to follow the instructions of the Apostle Paul in this regard. I must separate though it hurts. The parent ministry has been a great blessing and we have conversations between our ministry and theirs often. Forums are not always indicative of a ministry, but my previous decision to distance myself from it seems to have been wise. I leave behind many friends, whom I truly do love. But I also leave behind the fighting and having to constantly defend the Faith there.

The Apostle Paul says the following in Gal 1:6-9

6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

To All Who Might Comment,

If you know which ministry or forum I am refering to please do not mention it, or imply it. Anything that implies or mentions it will be deleted. While I do believe the ministry leaves a dangerous open door to somethings I do not wish to "mark" that ministry. I do not feel that is called for in this case.

A difficult thing to deal with, but when faced with the choice of fidelity to the Word of God or to friends and fellowships, there is ONLY ONE choice.
