Danger: A false Jesus is very misleading! “For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.”
The Bible warns against following or believing in “another Jesus.” It’s easy to follow a Jesus who is less than the Jesus of the Bible who is seated and enthroned at the right hand of the Father and yet who is actually present and actively working whenever two or three gather in His name.
What are some examples of “another Jesus?” Here are a few: an institutional Jesus confined to a church service or denomination, a Jesus stuck in history, a powerless and infantile Jesus, a patriotic Jesus nationalized to a particular country, a prosperity Jesus, a motivational Jesus, a white Jesus, a validating Jesus who we use to justify our behaviors, a condemning Jesus who we use to condemn others, a self-pleasing Jesus, a theologically distorted Jesus used to twist the Bible, etc.
All of those are a poor replacement for the living, resurrected, ascended, enthroned, ruling, present and active Lord Jesus Christ who actually lives in, empowers, and directs His true followers! Accept no substitute for Him and His moment-by-moment presence and Lordship in your life!
