Following is just one more example of the extremism coming from the GES's “Crossless” Gospel, by way of Antonio da Rosa. Following comment made by Antonio about the Lord Jesus. Rose of *Rose’s Reasonings wrote an article titled, Is Christ’s Deity Essential? In the thread that followed (6/15/2007 @ 7:08 PM) Antonio wrote, This is among the most egregious and dangerous statements to date coming from Antonio da Rosa or any advocate of the “Crossless” gospel. The Mormon Jesus is believed to be a spirit (or half) brother of the Devil. To equate the Mormon view of Jesus with the biblical Jesus is as abominable a heresy as can possibly be uttered about Him. For further review of this see Can the Biblical Jesus & Mormon Jesus be "One and the Same?" Antonio da Rosa and GES men will say this kind of thing about Jesus because they believe the lost do not have to understand or believe that Jesus is the Son of God (Deity). This is whey the Crossless advocates, must also strip the Lord's titles “the Christ” and the “Son of God” of their deity. For a comprehensive view of the GES (Zane Hodges in particular) assualt on the deity of Christ. See the two part series: The “Christ” Under Siege The “Christ” Under Siege: The New Assault from the Grace Evangelical Society As far as da Rosa and GES are concerned the Mormon can cling to his belief in the half-brother of Satan and a promise of eternal life from that false Christ and still be born again. The GES/da Rosa tell you that they will deal with his “misconceptions” about Jesus after he believes in the promise as though he has been saved and just needs some crash course discipleship. In the personal evangelism setting, however, if the lost man refuses to accept and/or openly rejects the Lord's deity, da Rosa explain his response, da Rosa also says, And he would leave the lost man's rejection of the Lord's deity on the “back-burner.” If the discipleship fails to convince him that Jesus is God, da Rosa says he will separate from him a though he is an erring brother. These are on-going examples of the egregious errors coming from Zane Hodges, Bob Wilkin as expressed by their (“Crossless” gospel) most vocal apologist, Antonio da Rosa. The GES, Zane Hodges, Bob Wilkin and their followers have become teachers of a false Gospel and other assorted doctrinal errors. Their assault on the deity of Christ is just one example. They are undermining the Word of God for reductionist views of the Gospel. They are doing all they can to spread their egregious errors into evangelical circles. Thankfully, many have come to recognize this and have followed the biblical mandates to “mark” these men who are the “cause (of) divisions and offences” in the body of Christ and local churches through their “contrary doctrine,” and believers are being warned to “avoid them.” (Romans 16:17) May I remind our pastors of Paul’s admonition, which should resonate today just as clearly as it did to the Ephesian elders, LM *Rose's Reasonings is administered by Rose. She has become dedicated to the promotion and defense of the Zane Hodges Crossless view of the Gospel and especially its most vocal advocate Antonio da Rosa.
