Another Jesus, Another Gospel - Teaching Series

We have been watching a series by one of our favourite online pastors, Mike Hoggard. Here are the videos to his most recent teachings titled, "Another Jesus, Another Gospel." They are listed in order and we will add more when they are posted on the Watchman Broadcast website. He addresses issues in these and other videos, regarding the warning that God's Word issues in:
2Corinthians 11:3,14 NKJV - But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or [if] you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted--you may well put up with it!
Even two thousand years ago a false gospel was already being preached, how much more today. It is a difficult thing to discern because there are so many well meaning, Jesus loving people, who naively follow persuasive teachers. And more often than not, those teachers themselves, are also unaware of what it is they are actually saying. As stated before, it is so critical that we read God's Word prayerfully and not deviate from it. It isn't a simple thing to post information about false teachings and doctrines under the banner of Christianity, because we know the information will offend the very people you believe God wants you to warn. On that note, we stand firm and present information, collected by committed believers in Christ and pray that we all will see God's Truth and avoid false gospels.

These videos cover movements from the "Sacred Name," to The Emergent Church, to the Word Faith or Prosperity Gospel movement. Please know that we don't mean to be insensitive but feel convicted that once we learn such things and know that they are backed up by the Word of God, it is our duty to use resources such as the internet to share the information for anyone who is seeking it. The information isn't easy to learn, especially when so many people you love are involved in and promote doctrines that don't mesh with God's infallible Word. As well it is heart breaking to hear how twisted God's Words can become when we seek to appease our flesh, justifying ourselves.

Lord, please help us all to  be alert and sober at all times, remind us to test the spirits always to not be deceived. Please give us wisdom and discernment to know what Your Word says. Please protect all of our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. For those who follow these false "gospels," believing they are on Your path,  please help them to see Your Truth, causing them to be delivered from deception. 
Thank You so much Lord for Jesus and His finished work on the cross, defeating death, blessing us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. Please give us eyes to see and ears to hear and cause us to love those who hate us and pray for those who persecute us. Forgive me for every time I judge others without knowing the truth, and forgive me for ever thinking I know more than someone else. Please humble me and teach me Your Truth. Help us all to listen to You and please remind us each day to put on Your armour, as Your Word says in Ephesian 6, our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual forces in the heavenly realms. Thank You that we can only do Your will, by the power of your Holy Spirit. A part from You, we can do no good thing. Thank You for Pastor Mike's heart to warn us about the deceptions in this world. Bless and protect him as well and thank You for the internet, being able to reach a world for You, while sitting in our home.
We love You Lord. In Jesus' Name Amen
