What is the gospel? Is it "Jesus died for sins in order for you to go to Heaven?" Is that what the Bible teaches or is that a new teaching? What has God said from the beginning and what has he said in the end? What is God doing in between creation and consummation of all things? What is the pristine Christian doctrine and does a departure from the doctrine disarm the power of the gospel?
