Evangelist Ravi Zacharias' False Gospel

By David J. Stewart | June 2017

Galatians 1:6-9, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

       One of the lamest, shallowest and dead evangelists of our generation is Dr. Ravi Zacharias. I say that kindly, but truthfully. I've never heard any preacher say so much, without really saying anything. Ravi's messages are dry, lacking substance, and are so complicated that hardly any of his listeners have the slightest idea what he's trying to get across. Ravi might as well be speaking in Latin, like Catholic priests deliberately do, to impress and deceive people. Ravi's not impressing God with his good words and fair speeches, he is a deceiver...

Romans 16:17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

I just checked at CharityNavigator.org and learned that Ravi Zacharias' ministry took in over $25,000,000 in 2015, of which he was compensated $190,564. Theological crime pays well. I am so sick and disgusted with so-called “servants” of God who get paid 6-digit salaries. And people are so stupid, as dumb sheep gone astray. Isaiah 53:6, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Jesus admonished the apostle Peter to feed his sheep, not exploit and profit off of them. It is sickening!!!

2nd Timothy 3:1-2a and 5 , “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves... Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

I've listened extensively to sermon after sermon by reprobate, Ravi Zacharias, and he never leads anybody to the Lord with his lame, silly, extremely vague, intentionally ambiguous, powerless message of salvation. Ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly what the Holy Bible foretold would happen during “perilous times,” when fake ministers would deceive the hearts of the simple with fair speeches, Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2nd Timothy 3:5-7). That missing “POWER” is “THE GOSPEL” (i.e., Good News) of the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” So there you have it, a person is SAVED by the power of the Gospel unto salvation, TO EVERY ONE THAT BELIEVETH!!!

So the next BIG QUESTION... THE $64,000 QUESTION... is, “WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?”

Before I contrast Ravi's bullcrap Gospel with the true Biblical Gospel, first let me say that there's a big independent Baptist church down the street from me on Guam, Harvest Baptist Church, who just invited and honored this wicked devil on June 4th, 2017, bragging that 1,000 sheeple showed up to hear him. Those pastors ought to be fired. YOU'RE FIRED!!! I dream of hearing someone with some spiritual sense and backbone, saying those words to them someday. THEY OUGHT TO BE FIRED! They would make good janitors instead.

I'm talking about the apostate Bob Jones University (BJU) camp, who have sold out to serve mammon instead of God. Bob Jones Sr. would have a heart-attack, if he could have one up in Heaven, looking down on what his family and associates have done to Bob Jones College, driving it in the ground spiritually. Just 50 years ago Bob Jones University was the citadel of Christian fundamentalism in America, but today has deteriorated into a big shameful laughing stock around the world. They can't even decide which English Bible version is God's inspired Word. BJU is like a big 3-ring circus, whose graduates are as Bible-juggling clowns. They should all be fired for spiritual incompetence. And may I say, the opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference!!! BJU's indifference is not Christ's love!!! Shame on any Baptist church that would invite and honor such an ecumenical disgrace as Ravi Zacharias, the millionaire minister!

Here is “THE GOSPEL” True, According to King James Bible

What exactly is the Gospel? The word “Gospel” means “Good News” or “Glad Tidings.” There is no need to guess what the “Gospel” is because the Bible plainly tells us. The “Gospel” is the Good News of Christ's DEATH on the cross for our sins, His BURIAL and bodily RESURRECTION three days later:

1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”

We are saved by BELIEVING “the Gospel,” which is the power of God unto salvation. Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” It is that simple to be saved. If you admit that you are a needy sinner in God's sight, and you receive Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins, believing (trusting - Ephesians 1:12-13) that He was buried and bodily resurrected three days later, YOU ARE IMMEDIATELY, SECURELY AND FOREVER SAVED!!!

Now Here is “THE GOSPEL” Corrupted, According to Dr. Ravi Zacharias

I have nothing personal against Mr. Zacharias. He seems like a sweet man, which is why a lot of people love him so much; but we're at war with the Devil and false prophets folks! In this video, Ravi says that his calling from God is to preach to hostile audiences, such as Mormons. That simply means that Ravi is such a wimp doctrinally, beating around the bush, saying nothing offensive, that he receives standing ovations from hellbound cults who still reject the Gospel.

In the following YouTube video titled, “Dr. Ravi Zacharias: What Is The Gospel?,” Ravi never mentions Christ's DEATH on the cross, nor His BURIAL, nor His RESURRECTION. Not one time! The cross is not mentioned!!! Ravi says that the Gospel addresses that the lonely and destitute human heart, cannot be satisfied by life, but by a “relationship with Jesus.” That's all he says. He says that God has reached out to mankind through the provision of Jesus Christ, in a “relationship” that begins with God. He uses such big words and confusing words that soar over most people's heads, that you can't understand what he is trying to say. Ravi is a horrible speaker!!! At the end of the video, Ravi says that “God offers you His presence in your life.” It's all ecumenical mumbo-jumbo, nonsensical jibber-jabber that goes no where, and doesn't lead the listener to make a decision for Christ. How can you make a decision, when he never tells you what to do to be saved. Folks, this man is a counterfeit, pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Ravi's Gospel is a false Gospel. Listen to Ravi's pathetic 3:49 minute video, and hear for yourself how off-base he is on the Gospel.

Devil Dog Preacher Ravi Zacharias' Counterfeit Gospel
(adds everything except kitchen sink!)

Now, I plead with you my dear reader, decide right now who you're going to believe—the precious inspired Scripture from the King James Bible, that I just shared with you; or an arrogant old fool (Ravi) who doesn't even quote one Bible Verse to present his plan of damnation? It ought to be as clear as day to you now, that this sinister minister named Ravi Zacharias is a massive fraud!!! He denies the power of the Gospel by suppressing it, so as to not offend his unsaved religious listeners. Search the internet, Ravi's website, and his sermons, and I triple-dog dare you to find a clear presentation of THE GOSPEL!

Please read, WHAT IS THE GOSPEL? (excellent, by Pastor Harry A. Ironside, 1876-1951). The Gospel ought to be delivered so simple, that the common man can be saved. No, instead, Ravi rambles on with a bunch of theological mumbo-jumbo, sounding like he knows what he's talking about, BUT NO ONE ELSE DOES. Is that supposed to be impressive or something, because in my book it is the worse type of orator possible!!!

Bless God, we need porcupine preachers today, so that people will GET THE POINT! Ravi is a chameleon, changing colors to blend in with his surroundings, never making a point, never offending anybody, and tragically, never getting anybody saved. What's the big secret Ravi? Why avoid quoting the Scriptures? Why hide your Gospel light under a bushel, or is it because you aren't saved yourself and have no light to shine before men? Paul said, “FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL” (Romans 1:16a). It certainly appears that Ravi Zacharias IS ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL!!! Speak up man, what are you trying to say??? Go look at Ravi's website, where he says that “we believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic church”! The average Catholic would think that Ravi supports them after reading that. What an ecumenical sinister minister! Dr. Zacharias is deliberately vague, as to avoid offending the various religious denominations, which makes him a prophet for hire, Balaam. That's why he rakes in over $25,000,000 a year in revenues.

Here are some more edifying articles . . .

2nd Timothy 3:1-2a and 5 , “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves... Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
