The Gospel should not be diminished in our telling


I am afraid that we have distributed a Gospel that is all too often an insufficient description of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In an effort to make the Gospel understandable we have regularly neutered the message which has in turn led to an impotent church which both misunderstands and misapplies the message of the Gospel.

Thankfully there are men like David Platt who are sounding a clarion call to understand the Gospel biblically. I am very much looking forward to attending the 20/20 Conference at Southeastern Seminary in February where Platt, along with J.D. Greear, Matt Chandler and others will be speaking. This video is a promo for the conference and features Platt’s discussion about the Gospel. I would encourage you to take two minutes and watch it. I would be curious to hear your thoughts about the Gospel that we have often heard described and the Gospel which is instead found in Scripture
