Gospel Defined

If you ask a group of self-professing Christians to define the gospel, you will likely get a myriad of different answers. When pressed to define the core of what we believe about Jesus, we often drift into a mumble of spiritual sounding technicalities and nervous “ knows.” Is this a problem? Can we define the gospel however we’d like? Is it okay for us to wander into wishy-washy sentimentality about exactly what the gospel is? Or to ask it another way, is it important to accurately define the gospel? Yes. We believe it is, and Paul tells us why.
