#17. Any gospel that preaches authority of its Church and traditions as greater than the authority of the Word of God is not the true gospel.

Remember the words of Jesus,
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it”
(Matthew 7:13, 14 NIV).
