The gospel is good news about a person


Excerpt from The Twisted Scriptures:

“The gospel, by etymology, is good news.

It is not a system of doctrine, a philosophy of life, a compilation of laws, or a code of ethics.

It is good news about a person and what that person has done for us in our hopeless, helpless and hapless condition.”

– W. Carl Ketcherside

  1. David

    That is a very good and important point. Church people seem to love dogma though (just been reading about the debates leading up to the councils of Nicaea).

    Incidentally my mother loved that 70s musical Godspell. I still find myself singing some of the songs.
