Someone said that anything with D.A. Carson's name attached to it is worth reading. That holds true for this editorial from Themelios concerning the gospel. Thanks to Justin Taylor for putting us on to this.
Carson rightly reminds us of what actually constitutes the gospel. We tend to identify the results of the gospel with the gospel. I cannot count the number of times I have heard statements like, "He doesn't preach the gospel; he doesn't give an altar call."
Proclaiming the gospel is not the same as what may result from the proclamation of the gospel.
