MORNINGTIME 2695
 
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. This is one of the "foundational" verses found in the Bible. This verse is used by those who are Solidly Anchored to the Rock of Christ. It is also used to try to justify those lost religious church goers who have deceived themselves into thinking they are "saved". Nevertheless, no matter what anybody THINKS about this verse, IT IS THE GOSPEL. "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:11. Right now there is great controversy around the Reverend Billy Graham. Was he a Christian, or not? Was he a Mason, or some other group follower? (This illustration can be used for anyone). This is really a two part question. First, was he Saved, or not? Let's put that one on hold and leave it in the hands of the Lord. Part two, DID HE PREACH THE GOSPEL FROM THE BIBLE AS THE LORD INTENDED IT TO BE PREACHED??? Yes he did, MANY videos and recordings will back that up. Be careful here, THAT PREACHING, in and of itself, does not make  anyone a "Christian". A tape recorder playing John 3:16, doesn't make that recorder a Christian. God will use ANY willing vessel to Preach the Gospel, and THROUGH that Gospel, people WILL be Saved. If a late  night TV talk show host is verbally bashing the Bible, and word for word quotes John 3:16, THAT QUOTE IS STILL THE GOSPEL, and it will not return void, no matter what the attitude or lifestyle of the speaker is. If a "preacher" has figured out A Real Gospel Message, uses it, and is making a boatload of money, he's still preaching the Gospel, even if The Gospel means nothing to him, a "Greedy Preacher" on his way to Hell. If you look at a man, any man, you will ALWAYS find fault. BUT WAS THE GOSPEL PREACHED FOR YOU TO, BE BLESSED???
