The false gospel of moralistic deism

Matt Chandler
The antithesis of the gospel of the grace of the Triune God given to us in the person of Jesus, is a moralistic deism (sometimes referred to as moralistic therapeutic deism) that posits a distant God whose relationship with us is grounded in a system of moral religion.

From this viewpoint, Jesus is our Savior in an historic sense, but now relates to us as a great moral teacher whose perfect moral example we are called to emulate. The Holy Spirit is then given to help us do so.

I'm grateful that some well-known contemporary evangelical leaders, like Matt Chandler, are speaking out against this false gospel. To view videos of other leaders addressing this issue, click here.
