9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. 
This very verse could have entire books written on it and many have been. Countless sermons have been preached on this single pivotal verse. Paul makes the declaration that if anyone is preaching a different gospel contrary to what you have received, let that person be accursed. There is a lot to unpack in just these few words. If anyone is preaching; Paul doesn’t say if any Pastor, or Minister, but anyone. This is an all-encompassing statement to include any person, of the church or not. If that person preaches anything that is not the gospel of Christ, Paul calls them to be accursed. This doesn’t mean we can’t have disagreements on topics, but anyone who strays away from Christ should bare this warning. Anyone who preaches against Christ’s righteousness, or someone who corrupts Christianity with another religion should head this warning. We must stay true to the scripture and preach the gospel and be careful to not distort it.
Today scripture has been pushed aside
for a more gentle approach, a more fluffy Jesus. Preachers have become ear ticklers
and people pleasers instead of gospel preaching men of God. We have lost the
luster of preaching repentance, verse by verse through the bible. Expository preaching
almost feels like a thing of the past, as preachers approach sermon writing differently.
They look at the verse, and think about what big points can I use to make so
and so happy? This goes completely against what this verse declares. Let those
men be accursed. We need men in the pulpit that will unapologetically preach
the word of God verse by verse and never waiver.
