Veritas

A variety of viewpoints are presented from our religious, political, and economic spectrums, but only the absolute truth of the gospel of Christ has the message that ultimately answers the most pressing questions and serious concerns of the human soul. The book is concerned with encouraging and helping church leaders bring spiritual renewal to their people through the biblical gospel.

What is the Gospel? Part 2

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ ultimately solved the problem of man's separation and alienation with God because of sin by removing it (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:10-12, 23; 5:12). Man is guilty before a holy God for breaking his divine law and justly deserves death (James 2:10; 1 Peter 1:16). Additionally, man's heart and the world in which he lives are corrupted and infiltrated by sin (Jeremiah 17:9; Mark 7:21-23; 1 John 2:16). Man tries to find happinesss, meaning, and purpose in life apart from God, but this is impossible for those who sin shall die (Ezekiel 18:4, 20). Since man cannot save himself (Romans 3:20; Ephesians 2:1-3), God must do so through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior (Romans 6:23). The gospel is the good news that the sinless and perfect man Jesus Christ sacrificed himself for us, taking upon himself our sins, "so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" ( 2 Corinthians 5:21). We could have never satisfied God's wrath for our sin and kept God's perfect laws ourselves, so Jesus did this for us (propitiation) by redeeming us from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13).
