Half Gospel is No Gospel at All posted by John Sorensen on Jun 07, 2018
As believers in Jesus Christ, we want to be messengers of the Good News – winsome in our approach. But it’s also imperative that we give people the full Gospel.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. The founder of EE, Dr. D. James Kennedy used to say to me that a half-truth, presented as the whole-truth, is no truth at all. The same could be said of the Gospel. If we only give half the Gospel for example, talking only about the love of God without talking about His justice, then we’re sharing no Gospel at all. And Jesus is our Perfect example. He cared deeply for hurting and lost people. He listened to them intently and responded to their deepest need which included telling them, “Go and sin no more.” So, while the message of God’s truth might offend some, we still need to share it fully.
