The Gospel Message
Many people are not knowledgeable about the content of the Bible. People have misconceptions of God because of us. The scriptures suggest that there was a corpus of belief taught by Jesus and the apostles that is essential for salvation. If you reduced the words of Jesus to one sentence, it would be, “whoever is willing to give up their life for my sake, will gain it, because the only way to be great is to be a servant, and the only way to be first is to be last.” You should only preach it if it works.
