One of the wonders of the Christian faith is that it is built on the previous revelations of God down through the years. The OT prophesies the coming of Jesus, and He uses it to legitimate His ministry again and again.
Therefore any new revelation that doesn't have that level of historical rootedness is defective. If you want to invent a cute new religion that suits your personal choices, feel free. But don't try and call it Christianity; it ain't.
"The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron"
1 Tim 4
We have a duty to determine whether our preaching is indeed of God and of His grace - or a watered down 'gospel' that offers nothing real.
