What Is the Gospel?

15 Oct

All of my entries up to this point have either, directly or indirectly, been related to this thing called “The Gospel.”  What then, exactly is the Gospel?  R.C. Sproul, the founder and president of Ligonier Ministries, offers a brief, yet powerful description of the Gospel here in his website.  Below is just a few sentences from it:

“There is no greater message to be heard than that which we call the Gospel. But as important as that is, it is often given to massive distortions or over simplifications. People think they’re preaching the Gospel to you when they tell you, ‘you can have a purpose to your life’, or that ‘you can have meaning to your life’, or that ‘you can have a personal relationship with Jesus.’ All of those things are true, and they’re all important, but they don’t get to the heart of the Gospel.”
