Question 65 - How can a person, who had love, be accursed, if he preaches any other gospel?

1 Corinthians 13:2 NKJV - "And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing."
Galatians 1:9 NKJV - "As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed."
                The Lord is the image of love. So, the one who have not love does not know the Lord God. The Acts of the Apostles 4:32, “Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one Soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own,  but they  had all things in common”. They distributed the proceeds of the things to each as anyone had need. This is the union of the gospel workers. They are the helper in one another. “Any other gospel” means, it is written in Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves”.
                Any other gospel is the gospel of spoiling the unity of congregation. This is, “Any other gospel.” It will not lead the people in the Lord. Romans 16:17, “Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them”. These persons spoil the minds of the innocents with any other gospels.
                Titus 3:10 “Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition.” There are the preachers, who used the church for their selfishness by creating differences in the doctrines. This kind of teaching is present in, “Any other gospel.”

                This kind of teaching has no love. The prior meaning in the teaching of the Lord Christ is, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
