Last week, I got a question about how to make the Gospel less offensive. This sparked a lively conversation about how that’s not actually possible. But why? If it’s good news, what’s so offensive?
In this episode, we tackle the following:
- What is the Gospel? It is the story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation; it’s the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
2. Why is the Gospel offensive? We shouldn’t try to smooth out that the Gospel is offensive because it’s exclusive. Because it points out our sin. Because it requires everything from us. The Gospel offends the flesh.
3. How does the Gospel affect today? Does salvation only affect our eternal life or does it affect life now?
