Those that would make merchandise of the souls of men tell them that GOD’s promises are conditional upon their obedience and that HE will reward men with a mixture of spiritual blessings and the goods of this world (which shall all, in reality, perish in the twinkling of an eye). This is how they would define the “things” which are added to men.
The airwaves of radio and TV are full of those who espouse this error, leaving men in greater darkness than those who have never heard anything. These blind guides fulfill that prophecy of the LORD, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” (Mat 23:15) They can be readily discovered, as they are constantly trying to gain contributions to fund their so called “ministries”, which are in large part designed with their own benefit in mind, while they call for “love gifts” and “seed faith” offerings to dupe their listeners.Mike McInnis in Grace Gazette, Volume XV, Issue 21
