The Gospel of Jesus Christ is Simple; But It's Not Simplistic!
"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." John 5:39
Although The Simple Gospel is a compilation of articles and essays written by Jon Cardwell while serving as a missionary-pastor in remote bush Alaska (2002-2008), the hope behind this little book is to exhort earnest Bible reading, study and meditations among Christians in these dark times; and further, to encourage an eye upon the scriptures from a perspective that is gospel honoring, Christ exalting, and God glorifying.
Jon has often said from the pulpit, â€śThe gospel of Jesus Christ is simple; but itâ€™s not simplistic.â€ť In other words...
The gospel is easy enough for a child to understand; nevertheless, the propositions of the gospel are eternal truths and, therefore, infinitely glorious.
As fallen men, even those redeemed by Godâ€™s grace in Jesus Christ, have a propensity toward sin and a tendency toward good works accomplished in the flesh, the only remedy for todayâ€™s Christian is to stay rooted and grounded in gospel faith, drawing nearer to God in the revelation of Jesus Christ from the scriptures. The entire Bible is about the Person and work of Jesus Christ: who He is and what He has done, is doing, and will do, unto Godâ€™s great glory.
