Marc Cortez, who teaches theology at Western Seminary in Portland, has written a series thought provoking of articles on What’s Wrong with our Gospel. We often divorce the Gospel from its context in the biblical story of redemption and focus almost exclusively on our individual experience with God. Just listen to a typical baptism testimony and you will see what I mean.
Here are some of the other posts in this series:
- Problem #1: The Self-Centered Gospel
- Problem #2: The Individualistic Gospel
- Problem #3: “Getting In”
- Problem #4: The (un)Social Gospel
What do you think about these articles? How can we share the Gospel in proper biblical context?
