Salvation is not the Gospel- Heresy or Truth?

Written by: on August 27, 2012

What is the Gospel? It seems to me that the Korean understanding of Gospel is focused primarily on ‘The Four Spiritual Laws.’ Which for me, brings up the familiar question, ‘If you were going to die today, where would you spend eternity?’ While I appreciate/value/celebrate an emphasis on one’s relationship with God, I think that understanding is limited and that a broader understanding of Gospel could be useful in Korea, as well as in America. The Gospel is much bigger then salvation, yes it includes salvation but it encompasses much more.  Gospel is the good news, that through Jesus, God is working to make every aspect of the world what it should be. What other elements do you think that should include?
