The Gospel and the Law.

When are we to preach the Gospel?
By Daniel Shultz

            The lack of a clear Gospel message has ruined many a church. From liberal mainline churches to modern mega churches the Gospel is getting less and less about the clear biblical truth that through faith in the atoning sacrifice of Christ our sins will be forgiven to some nebulous concept of a “relationship with God.” Whether it’s through a "special purpose" that God "gives us" or a focus on God’s love over His holiness, wrath, and justice the result is always the same, the Gospel gets lost. It goes away and with it goes any sense that the Christian can have of true peace.
