Several years ago I read a book called Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller. It was an intriguing book, which I thoroughly enjoyed. His book was and still is immensely popular. Many people I know have read it and endorsed to many other their friends and had I not had been privy to some seminars and discussions surrounding this book I would have blindly endorsed it to anyone and everyone. Why am I boring you with this? Because in his book Donald Miller goes into great detail about how he and several friends on a particular college campus made efforts to “redeem” Christianity by apologizing for what Christians have done in the past and what they’re currently doing that is not reflective of biblical Christianity. It sounds nice, spiritual, endearing, but in reality it’s empty and counter-productive; many have described this message as the new gospel, which has aspects of the old gospel, but at the end of the day it falls well short of the historical event and message of Christ (I Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 1:16). Kevin DeYoung in a recent post delineates between the old and new gospel and it’s a must read for those wanting to discern between the true and powerful gospel and a pseudo-one. Enjoy
One thought on “Great post by Kevin DeYoung on New Gospel vs. Old Gospel”
Great post, thanks for it.
