In this eye-opening book, David Servant takes a close look at what the New Testament actually teaches about saving faith, God's transforming grace, and "the holiness without which no one will see the Lord" (Hebrews 12:14)
This book examines the modern gospel that is so popular in America and around the globe, but that is often lacking when compared to the gospel of the Bible. The primary difference is that the modern gospel portrays a grace that is foreign to Scripture, a grace that is actually a license to sin. Whereas the gospel of the Bible reveals a grace from God that offers people a limited time to repent and a promise of freedom from sin. Jesus told the woman caught in adultery, "I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more" (John 8:11). You can be certain that if that woman continued in her sin, when she stood at Christ's judgment seat after her death, she did not hear the same words again. Likewise, God is graciously giving every person a limited opportunity to repent, so that each person will stand before Him forgiven and striving to follow Him to "enter through the narrow gate" (Matt. 7:13).

Jesus straightforwardly warned everyone that many who think they are saved will be shocked when they stand before Him. They will be those whose faith was dead, void of the works of obedience that Scripture tells us are naturally practiced by those who truly believe.
Both Old and New Testaments warn repeatedly of the necessity of holiness if one hopes to inherit eternal life. Yet the Bible's gospel has suffered a modern twist, and today multitudes have been deceived into thinking that God's grace removes all responsibility to be obedient to Christ's commandments. This new gospel is being preached and accepted around the world, and consequently, many are trusting in a grace that God has never offered anyone.
In this eye opening book, David Servant takes a closer look at the message that was preached by Jesus and His apostles, comparing it with the modern "gospel." He answers tough questions. His conclusions are difficult to discount. If you are concerned about your eternal destiny, this could be the most significant book that you ever read.
David Servant has been teaching the Bible for over three decades as a pastor and an international conference speaker, as well as through his books and daily video devotional, HeavenWord 7.
