The Church as a Gospel Gathering

There are church gatherings with minimal gospel emphasis.

I know this because I have been part of such gatherings.

The pastors asked me to leave.

Reason?  Making known my dissatisfaction with the deemphasis.

What to Make of Church Gatherings with Minimal Gospel.

Sure, there are many gatherings where in this deemphasis palpable.  So what do we do?  We give thanks?  You see, even when it is deemphasized, we can be thankful that however marginal it is, one truth remains.  Namely, the gospel is the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes (Romans 1:16).

The norm for the church is that the gospel be at the all-encompassing centre of it’s life.  But situations where it is not?  So long as it is somewhere, there ought to be thanks to God.

This demonstrates how powerful the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God is.   This good news is the power of God unto salvation.  No matter how deemphasized it may be, the this remains.
