Acts 7:58-59 (NASB)
58 When they had driven him out of the city, they began stoning him; and the witnesses laid aside their robes at the feet of a young man named Saul.
59 They went on stoning Stephen as he called on the Lord and said, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!”

Here is the life change that took place because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ:

  • A father and mother lost a son because of the Gospel.
  • People lost a dear friend because of the Gospel.
  • Stephen’s life was put to an end because of “making the name of Jesus famous.

The false gospel of life change fails when events out of our control devastate our lives. This life change gospel cannot comfort those who made a confession but received no positive life change. This false gospel is built upon what you can get out of Christ now.  The true Gospel teaches us to say,”Glory be to God!” no matter what the circumstances. The life change gospel cannot handle cancer, sickness, financial woes, death of a loved one, divorce, adultery, or most other major negative circumstances that occur during our lives. Those who buy into this lie often find themselves in misery because the expected life change did not happen the way it was marketed to them by their relevant life coaches.
