But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!
Mohammad declared an angel appeared to him and revealed the Koran. Joseph Smith proclaimed the Book of Mormon was shown to him by an angel. Others make similar claims to divine inspiration and revelation.
Today another “gospel”, not a new one, just a revived one, is slithering into the Body of Christ. The “good news” that God is only a one dimensional God of love. He has no anger, wrath or justice within Him, in spite of the Bible’s many clear declarations (Old and New Testament) to the contrary.
The vilest wretch of a human and the most precious saint will both ultimately live forever in an eternal reward. And that is how God shows Himself to be both a God of love and justice. Obviously this is not how the lie is sold but the idea of universalism is another gospel, certainly not one taught by Jesus or Paul.
Did Mohammad and Joseph Smith really communicate with angels? Does the revelation of God’s universal salvation really come from a supernatural source? I believe the answer is clearly, “Yes.” But not all angels are sent by God.
Paul made it clear that no matter how valid the source or what confirming evidence they might bring, even an angel from heaven, if the message is different from that in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament then it is false, the messenger is to be accursed and any who follow its teaching are headed for the same outcome.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness.
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.
