The Gospel With Additives
Nov 29, 2018 1023
At its core, the Gospel is simple.
I usually try to buy food without additives. The more strange numbers and ingredients I see on the list, the more I wonder if there’s something wrong with the product.
It’s the same with the Gospel.
At its core, it’s actually very simple. Jesus came to earth, died on the cross and rose to life from the grave proving he was God’s son and chosen king. By following Him, you and I can have forgiveness of sins and life eternal.
The problem comes when people start adding to that basic truth – a social agenda, religious expectations, or even good–intentioned advice for living.
Don’t get distracted from the plain and simple Gospel…
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life – John 3:16.
You don’t need to add any other ingredients to find forgiveness and eternal life!
