It has become fashionable these days for preachers and theologians to give us â€œthe gospelâ€ in a short form. â€œThe Gospel in 6 minutes.â€ Or, â€œthe Gospel in one sentence.â€ What they usually present is a short statement about Jesusâ€™ work for our individual salvation. And thatâ€™s all. The main message of the Gospel for our modern preachers seems to be that our individual salvation is the most important goal of God, and Christ came to serve and achieve that most important goal. Thus, the modern view of the Gospel in many churches doesnâ€™t differ too much from the pagan view of the pagan religions. It in fact doesnâ€™t differ from what pagans would want Christianity to be. Many things are excluded from the Gospel: culture, justice, families, history, science, etc. The â€œgospelâ€ of our modern preachers is strictly limited to one area only: me and mine.
