David Platt will share teaching on "Cults and Counterfeit Gospels" via simulcast at North Clinton Church on Friday, April 20 from 7:00 p.m.-1:00 a.m. Saturday.
The format of the Secret Church simulcast is modeled after a "house church", meeting for an intense time of Bible study and a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the gospel.
The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant for the church today. For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission, followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?” and “How can I recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeits?”
We will consider the claims of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will also explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including prosperity teaching that is rampant across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this Secret Church not only enabled to discern false gospels, but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and with peoples around the world.
Tickets may be purchased from the Church Office (Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.; Sunday 8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) for $5 each (no discounts) and include workbook and snacks.
