A false choice is being sold to us. Or fed to us. Or whatever they are doing to us.
I’ve been hearing phrases like “the story of Jesus” and “the life of Jesus” and “the story of God” for a while now. They are used to describe the preaching of the gospel.
But not the kind of preaching you might think.
These phrases often used to describe a very selective Jesus. A very selective gospel based on a limited focus of who Jesus is and what He taught.
Such a gospel only gives the promise of hope. But it lacks the foundation and fullness to satisfy the soul seeking to know Christ.
