Between Two Worlds: "Gospel" vs Gospel
November 2, 2007
Justin Taylor has posted a link to a helpful review of Brian MacLaren's understanding of the Gospel ("Gospel" vs Gospel). MacLaren's theology is an atrocity but he is no dummy. Over the past 10 years he has gradually unveiled his beliefs. The combination of this gradual unveiling with American Christian's taste for fads has allowed MacLaren to be named by Time Magazine as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America. But MacLaren is no evangelical. Technically speaking, an evangelical is one who believes the "evangel" or the Gospel. But it is clear from his own writings that MacLaren has strayed seriously from the biblical Gospel. If you don't think this is a big deal then read Galatians.
