Quote: The Biblical Gospel

The modern-day gospel says, “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. Therefore, follow these steps, and you can be saved.” Meanwhile, the biblical gospel says, “You are an enemy of God, dead in your sin, and in your present state of rebellion, you are not even able to see that you need life, much less to cause yourself to come to life. Therefore, you are radically dependent on God to do something in your life that you could never do.”

— David Platt

  1. What if the Biblical gospel is this:

    “I created you for relationship. Because you are (continually) eating from that tree you are running from Me in fear, convinced that I am determined to wipe you out for your disobedience. But I am so determined to include you in my fellowship with the Son and Holy Spirit that I will even allow you to put My Son to death to show you the boundlessness of My love. I invite you to participate in relationship with Us. I have already done everything to make this relationship possible. I will wait for you as long as it takes.”
