Feed Your Soul – The Sweet and Salty Gospel

The Sweet and Salty Gospel

Comfort vs. Called: Embracing a Difficult Gospel – Feed Your Soul: Gospel Reflections THIS WEEK’S GOSPEL IS LUKE 17:5-10

The best flavor combination the Gospel has to offer: a little bit of sweet, a little bit of salty.

Sometimes we can look at parts of the Gospel and think, “That sounds hard–I don’t like what that means.” And you’re not alone in that.

But today, Allen makes a surprising comparison between the Gospel and a Reese’s cup to show us how the salty parts of the Gospel can make its message that much sweeter.

Bible Love Notes – Thomas Jefferson Did It

Thomas Jefferson considered the Bible untrustworthy. So he created his own gospel by taking scissors to a copy of the New Testament. 

Sadly, Jeffersonian techniques are alive and well among many modern Christians today. They don’t literally cut passages from their Bibles. They simply ignore them. 

Some do this because they don’t want to be bothered by facts that disagree with their lifestyle.

Others ignore passages because they’ve been propagandized by clever false teachers (2 Timothy 4:3-4). 

I expect atheists to disrespect Scripture in order to hold on to their faulty conclusions about God and life (Psalm 14:1). But it’s far more troubling to encounter professing Christians who’ve “written” their own gospels. 

We must hold fast to the truth, and in order to do this, we must learn and accept all that Scripture teaches (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
