“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believe.” Romans 1:16

There is an undercurrent flowing within Evangelical churches and ministries. It is a different gospel, it is the social gospel.

At a first glance one thinks the social gospel to be noble in its efforts to alleviate humanity of poverty, suffering, and injustices. However, with a closer look this gospel is more man’s gospel than the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Really? What could be more Christ-like than mission work that demonstrates a self-less love for mankind?

So what’s the problem?

The problem is that within evangelical circles Scripture is being subtely adjusted and interpreted to shift the emphasis from the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a gospel of saving the culture. Culture is fallen and is in need of a savior. And these evangelical minsitries are training volunteers to SAVE it.

Where is that directive in Scripture?

Where is God’s Sovereignty?

While well intended, the social gospel promotes another gospel and the theology of creating God’s Kingdom on Earth, Now. It is an attempt soften God’s Word, make it less decisive, more inclusive and less authoratative.
