Sure, lots of people talk about Jesus, about being good and avoiding bad, and about feeling good about yourself, but sometimes the gospel message itself is simply assumed. Over time the gospel ends up vanishing altogether. What’s left then isn’t really the gospel at all, only a cheap counterfeit which one author has called “Christian Moralistic Therapeutic Deism.”

The idea behind moralistic, therapeutic deism is that we are able to earn favor with God by our own behavior. This way of thinking sounds religious, even “Christian” in its content, but distorts the true gospel and causes great spiritual damage. It transforms Jesus from being our Savior from sin into our cheerleader for self-improvement. And so it’s no wonder that lots of people today, even people who call themselves Christians, could care less.

The antidote to rouse us out of our apathy is to know the true gospel explicitly. In this series we will study key sections from Paul’s letter to the Galatians in which he vigorously, passionately, and practically lays out the explicit gospel to people who were starting to care less about Christ.

Life is short. Eternity is long. Our goal is that through this series you will be so overwhelmed by the grace of God in Christ that you will not only cherish the gospel, but become confident enough about the gospel to share it…undiluted.
