different gospel

Paul warned us to be careful not to be lead away by a different gospel. (Galatians 1)
A different gospel would be something different than Christ taught and recorded in the bible.

Here's whats bothering me.

Why do I feel I'm teaching a different gospel when I'm reading a direct scripture?
for example
  • 1 John 2:15 - Do not love the world or the things in it, If you do the love of the Father is not in you
  • 1 John 3:10 - If you do not love your brother, you are not of G-d
  • 1 John 3:16 - If you have stuff, and ignore someone in need the love of G-d does not abide in you
  • 1 John 4:8 - If you dont love you dont know G-d
  • Hebrews 11:6 - It is impossible to please G-d outside of faith
  • Philippians 3:19 - If you set your mind on earthly things, you are an enemy of the cross
  • Philippians 2:5 - The same mindset Christ had, we should have
  • Matt 25:41 - If we see people in need and do not help, it is the same as not helping Christ
Why do these scriptures seem so far away from where we live? Why do we try to justify why we cant do what the scriptures say?
Have we followed a different gospel?
