Can you speak Gospelese?
Our church is a gospel church that is gospel crazy for gospel living. We believe that gospel discipleship makes gospel people who create gospel change and gospel dynamics. We believe in gospel administration for gospel organising. Gospel youth work is essential for gospel kids. A gospel welcome for gospel needers!
What am I going on about? That's a very good point indeed.
Gospel has become an adjective which if you want people to think you're kosher in conservative evangelicalism you add it, seemingly, to everything.
What is interesting is that we are often more willing to talk about the gospel than we are about Jesus. The gospel is not a formula to stop me getting angry with my kids, the gospel is an announcement of news regarding the incarnate son of God.
