    Gospel according to Jesus or Gospel according to Paul, is there a difference is there dissonance between Paul’s take on life and Christ. I think the Apostles affliction has a lot to do with his writing. We all are not afflicted like Paul, but some are, Look at life experience, all in Christ are blessed but there are some difficult painful paths and some that seem blessed and seem free of pestilence.

    The Gospel isn’t a set of transformational steps that I must climb to get saved. The Gospel is a story — our story — that we tell the world what Jesus has done, is doing and will do.

    Doesn’t the Nicene Creed, the universal Gospel in a nutshell for over 1,600 years, remain the Gospel summary?

    [Ref. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicene_Creed%5D

    How could one be considered a Christian and disagree with it?

    Since no Reformation creed has supplanted it, doesn’t the Church who gave us the Nicene Creed, retain the Gospel?

    Isn’t the Nicene Creed this Gospel story?

    Hey guys – It would be great to hear a little exposition on Revelation 3:20 in the context of future discussions regarding the dominant concept of “inviting Jesus into your heart”. I would bet that a vast majority of non-reformed, evangelical folks in the seeker churches have NEVER heard the alternative interpretation of R3:20: This is *not* a verse to be used as a tool in evangelistic attempts to reach lost people because Christ was addressing THE CHURCH (“Xians”) in Laodicea, not “unbelievers”. This is another popular verse/concept that needs to be gently explained. It might even open the door (pun intended!) to good discussions about election. WHI-1061 would have been a great place to get into that.

    I’m curious to hear your take on the description of the Gospel in Colossians 1:7, where the ESV Study Bible states Paul makes it clear that “the gospel involves systematic instruction in the faith and in how to live as a Christian.”

    Thanks!

    [7] just as you learned [the Gospel] from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf
    (Colossians 1:7 ESV)
    ===
    Col. 1:7 You learned it from Epaphras makes it clear that Paul did not plant the church at Colossae. The people heard the gospel from Epaphras (a shortened form of “Epaphroditus”), who is a fellow Colossian (4:12). The term for “learned” (Gk. manthanō) is closely related to the term “disciple” (Gk. mathētēs). More than merely listening to a simple gospel presentation, Paul makes it clear that the gospel involves systematic instruction in the faith and in how to live as a Christian.
