Interview with Michael Horton in Christianity Today

Michael Horton was interviewed in the November 2009 Christianity Today.  I find his comments both helpful and insightful, flowing as they do from a biblical understanding of the gospel of God's grace in Jesus. 
Here's part of what he says:
"In such a therapeutic, pragmatic, pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps society as ours, the message of God having to do all the work in saving us comes as an offensive shot at our egos...The gospel has nothing to do with what I do. The gospel is entirely a message about what someone else has done not only for me but also for the renewal of the whole creation."

  1. Hi there!

    This ariticle you refer to is pointing, in my opinion, to the challenge of Christianity in today's world. You see, we modern Christians have generally made the gospel good advice rather than good news. This is folly.

    In contrast, when we embrace the gospel that Jesus is Lord and God raised Him from the dead, we are put on a different path away from folly and to Christ in us, our hope of glory.

    Anyway, there is much to address in this matter. The interview cited is as good a place to start as any.

    The best to you always!
