Can one be a Christian and also be a Christian Gainsayer? We could word it this way – can a Christian be deceived into thinking they are an authentic born-again believer but actually be a total gainsayer in truth?
The answer would stun most Christians, but the answer, according to Jesus Christ Himself is YES. Not only is it possible, but the vast majority of Christians are in fact CHRISTIAN GAINSAYERS BUT HAVE NO CLUE THEY ARE. How is this possible? The definition of gainsay is interesting:
verb gain·say \ˌgān-ˈsā\
Simple Definition of gainsay
:to deny or disagree with (something) : to show or say that (something) is not true

Examples of gainsay in a sentence
- <it can’t be gainsaid that most people wish they had more time and money>
- <repeatedly tried to gainsay me, though every point I made was backed up by facts>
Ok, so the definition of a gainsayer is one who opposes, denies, and contradicts established provable facts. We could also bring in the word DENIAL, as it means to deny factual data simply because one does not want to hear it.
Did You Know?
You might have trouble figuring out “gainsay” if you’re thinking of our modern “gain” plus “say.” It might help to know that the “gain-” part is actually related to “against.” In Old English, gēan-meant “against.” From that came the Middle English “gain-.” “Gain-” was joined with “sayen” (“say”) to form “gainsayen,” the Middle English predecessor of “gainsay.” So when you see “gainsay,” think “say against” – that is, “deny” or “contradict.” When you do happen to come across “gainsay,” it’s likely to be in literature. “Gainsay” is a literary, somewhat old-fashioned word that isn’t heard much in everyday modern speech.
Origin of gainsay
Middle English gainsayen, from gain-against (from Old English gēan-) + sayen to say — more at again
First Known Use: 14th century
Related to gainsay
contradict, disaffirm, disallow, disavow,disclaim,
disconfirm, disown, deny, negate,negative, refute, reject, repudiate
OK, here is what the false preachers, teachers, evangelists and their followers do:
2 Peter 2 (KJV)
2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
Notice it says they DENY/CONTRADICT, GAINSAY, REFUTE the STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY. Do a good word study on the word “denying”, and because of that, the WAY OF THE TRUTH (Narrow Way) is caused to be evil spoken of. It other words, the VAST MAJORITY OF CHRISTIANS TODAY totally deny the only way through Heavens Gate, and who, because they follow these fake leaders, are totally under the authority of these wolves, follow them into perdition and are in fact the Christian Gainsayers!!
These are the ones Jesus spoke about in Matthew 7 with MANY rejecting the true gospel and the FEW who enter in. We find them also in Revelation –
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
All of the above elements concern authentic regeneration or being born again. These poor lost Christians
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
These folks are in fact not born again, they are told in no uncertain terms to REPENT and do as commanded. They are obviously not overcomers at all. They are THE MANY and they are THE GAINSAYERS.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
So by now one should be asking the ONE KEY QUESTION. What ONE KEY THING did the modern Christian DENY, REFUTE, CONTRADICT that sends them to eternal ruin by the millions?
This is NOT A JOKE, this is serious business, in fact there is NOTHING more serious than a soul’s salvation. The Bible warns you that most Christians are in actual fact GAINSAYERS, because they refute, refuse, deny, and contradict THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY, the only way Jesus gave to us to be in truth born again, and find our ransom, our redeemer.
I have spent the last 30+ years warning Christians about this, with little response, but I have put it out there and the gainsayers have been warned, the Bible verses given, and irrefutable proof texts laid out for all to see.
This is so important that I fully guarantee the book THE CHRISTIAN GAINSAYERS. I will totally refund your money if I have not proved to you what a deception this is, how it works, and what you can do to avoid all of this and not be sent away.
MAKE SURE YOUR SALVATION IS SECURE, NOT BASED UPON WHAT YOU BELIEVE, or HAVE FAITH IN, BUT RATHER IT IS BASED UPON THE ACTUAL BIBLICAL FACTS THAT YOU CAN ANSWER YES, OR NO TOO. If you answer “NO, I cannot testify to that” — NO FEAR, just ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GUIDE YOU INTO THE REAL TRUTH OF AUTHENTIC SALVATION!! Don’t take anything I have to say about it as truth, prove it out for yourself!!
