What Is The Gospel?

I recently participated in a Men’s Bible Study, about 20 men on a Wednesday evening. The study was on the Book of Galatians. The gentleman leading the study began by asking the following question:

‘What is the Gospel?’

There were two very feeble and incomplete attempts to answer that question. Then lots of blank stares and silence. This raises the issue of Biblical Literacy. If there is not a clear and focused understanding of the basic premise – – ‘What is the Gospel?’ imagine the depth of deficiency on such topics as:

 **Imputation

 **Reconciliation

 **Wrath

 **Justification

 **Sanctification

 **Election

 **Redemption

 Remember, this is a men’s class. Men are charged with leading their homes and families. If they cannot answer this most basic question ‘What is the Gospel?’, the next generation is wide open to every form of heresy and False Doctrine that is rapidly escalating and flooding in our land.

A return to Catechism that begins at the earliest age (2) would be a great place to begin. Dad will learn as he teaches and that is a very good thing. ((SELAH)!!
