I have a saying that goes like this:
“The Gospel, by it’s nature, to our nature, is offensive and if we are not being offended every day, we had best check to see if we are in ‘the Way.'”
Now, the Gospel is not offensive in and of itself. Matter of fact, it is the good news, the best news that mankind can ever hear. But, because of sin, our hearts, our minds, our entire being is offended by the Gospel. So, while the Gospel is not Offensive, our nature is offended by it.
This goes along with a blog post I read earlier today which can be found here.
