The Third Way
The gospel is not religion or irreligion. The gospel is not morality or immorality. The gospel is not just grace—that God loves us unconditionally, it is truth as well. The gospel is not just truth—that we are a sinner, it is also grace. The gospel is truth and grace together. The grace that God loves you more than what you can imagine. And the truth that you are a lot more sinful than you are imagine. The gospel is both at the same time. What Jesus is saying is completely different. It’s not a middle position between the two. What he is saying is radical.
