Some Pastors and televangelist in Christianity nowadays are looking to spruce up the gospel. However the question arises, does G-d want the gospel compromised or distorted? Does he really want a new gospel with a new feel and attraction for today’s world? The answer to this is NO! While the culture and the western world is constantly changing and reinventing itself does not require the church to follow in its foot steps. As the old saying goes “if your friends jumped off the London Bridge would you do it too?” The uncompromised message of the Gospel is about life, grace, peace and forgiveness, and that truth can only be found in the one true life giver the Messiah of Israel. Eternal Life never originated, nor came from televangelist, a church, pastor, media or cultures of men. Making or changing the gospel to fit the world or be like the world is wrong! It’s the other way around, the uncompromised gospel was given to bring conviction and change to men, not for man to change or tamper with its effective truth. Beware of those who preach a todays false gospel because they will be accursed! Here's something to meditate on.

The scriptures warn us to beware of those who preach a false gospel.

Gal 1:8  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other good news unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

(NOTE: This goes contrary to the "politically correct" wishy-washie world opinion that we should be "tolerant" and "open-minded" about "different ways" to G-d. Verse 9 also echoes this.) (From the Israeli authorized version)

Gal 1:9  As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other "good news" unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

In today’s world a big message which is communicated over and over again is “It’s all about me” “I’m more important than anyone else!” But looking into the behavior for a believer should this really be the message that the Messiah would want the world to know about him? Should we always think more of ourselves first than of others? Actually the Messiah set an example of selfless love and service towards others. The Apostles also remind us to always be selfless too. Thinking only of ourselves all the time is known as selfishness. This is not what G-d has in mind for his followers. Being selfish is an ungodly trait which many who follow the world practice. We are told again not to be as the world. Here’s something to meditate on.

Selfishness is ungodly! We are encouraged to live godly.

Tit 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and g-dly, in this present world;

A selfless life can open doors to the saving of others

1Co 10:33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

What did the Messiah mean when he spoke this statement “And whoever will compel you to go one mile, go with him two”? Did Yeshua mean that a Christian when asked to do something that they do not want to, are to reluctantly do it anyway? Actually his instruction had to do with the imposing of government officials who if needed on demand the aid of a citizens horse or carriage they were not to refuse their request, but were to offer anything they could and then some. The over all command of the Messiah to us is simply that others may too make unreasonable demands upon us. Whether we can aid them or not is not the issue, the issue is to do whatever we can whenever they ask. Here’s something to meditate on.

G-ds example of giving us his only Son is a reminder for us to remember to give of ourselves even when asked by others no matter how unreasonable it may appear?

Rom 8:32 He who indeed did not spare His own Ben (Son) but gave him up for us all, how shall He not also with him give us all things?
