Another Gospel

6 I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who in his love and mercy called you to share the eternal life he gives through Christ. You are already following a different way 7 that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who twist and change the truth concerning Christ.

I was reading Galatians 1 earlier this week and I began wondering how much I have been engrained with another Gospel because of the culture I grew up in? Paul preached a Gospel of grace, mercy, and righteousness by faith. I was trained in a culture of “5 Easy Steps to a More Godly Marriage” or “3 Ways to Have a More Dynamic Prayer Life.” There is something about the Gospel that defies our modernistic ideas of human perfectibility. It tells us we can not be perfect on our own. We needed Jesus to die a gruesome death to give us any hope of access to God the Father.
