“Now this is eternal life:” Jesus prayed, “that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” John 17:3.
The Gospel is not a body of knowledge about who God is and what God has done. The Gospel is actually knowing God.
The Gospel isn’t just about God’s love, it is all about God is Love.
This is why the Gospel isn’t about a kind Christianity that’s reduced to knowing about God. We must go on to knowing God in an intimate way, not from our perspective but from God’s perspective.
It’s about knowing God (the Gospel) not from our framework because then we reduce God to our image, and the Gospel to our concept of love. This is the natural tendency of humanity, to reduce everything to our level of understanding…our comprehension. Right or wrong that is what we do.
This answers the question of our many religions, denominations, opinions. We have strayed away from the understanding of the “Gospel.”
Let us purge our hearts of any man-made idols of understanding and take up the perspective of the Almighty and see from the holy (unpolluted) perspective of God Himself, the prism of the Gospel.
