Disclaimer: About This Blog

THIS BLOG IS: my personal journey of how I am rethinking some of my spiritual beliefs.
THIS BLOG IS NOT: intended to point fingers at people who I think are wrong.
I do not believe the final judgement will be based on how many correct answers we get on a theology exam. I believe many people throughout history have had genuine relationships with our Lord and Saviour Jesus, despite holding questionable beliefs and practices. I make no claim to having it all figured out or being your judge. If we end up disagreeing over these topics I pray we can find a way to demonstrate grace.

Playdough Scripture Matt 24:14

"And this gospel of the kingdom of God’s saving activity in the person and work of Christ, including his incarnation in which he took to himself full (yet sinless) human nature; his sinless life which fulfilled the perfect law of God; his substitutionary death which paid the penalty for man’s sin and satisfied the righteous wrath of God; his resurrection demonstrating God’s satisfaction with his sacrifice; and his glorification and ascension to the right hand of the Father where he now reigns and intercedes for the church will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."

You forgot to add the subsection about the trinity.
Hey, where are you located?

Oh, sorry if I forgot to include one of the essentials... :)

Actually if I was to list all the essentials I'd be writing for days.

The point I was attempting to make here is that it seems a common way to define the gospel does not fit well in this verse. But if a verse doesn't fit your box, what other choice do you have than to use playdough scripture?

Yeah, you can find me on fb at http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.hutton
