God and the Gospel
David Pawson calls the church back to the very heart of the goodnews. For many, the 'gospel' is that God loves everybody unconditionally. Yet neither Jesus nor his apostles ever preached like that. They seem to have thought that the world needed to know about his righteousness and his willingness, even his eagerness, to share that with us. That is because he is determined to have a universe in which there is no unrighteousness whatever. Why don't we think that is good news?
John 3:16 is often referred to as 'the gospel in a nutshell'. I believe it is one of the most mistranslated and misapplied verses in the Bible. Like most Christians, I totally misunderstood the verse. So I am warning you now that I may spoil John 3:16 for you for the rest of your life. But I hope that this book will also give you the true meaning of what is a wonderful message, and a very important one, especially for Christians.
