Introduction
HAS MAN OUTGROWN THE GOSPEL?
NOT UNLESS HE HAS FOUND ANOTHER FOOD FOR 'THE SOUL.
NOT UNLESS HE HAS FOUND ANOTHER CURE FOR MAN'S MOST SERIOUS DISEASE.
NOT UNLESS HE HAS UNEARTHED ANOTHER MAP TO HEAVEN.
NOT UNLESS HE HAS FOUND ANOTHER WEAPON SATAN FEARS.
NOT UNLESS HE CAN MAKE HIS LIFE MEANINGFUL WITHOUT IT.
Has Man Outgrown the Gospel?
NOT UNLESS HE HAS FOUND ANOTHER CURE FOR MAN'S MOST SERIOUS DISEASE
I.
A cure for sin (forgiveness) is still man's most basic spiritual need
Medical treatments have been around at least since Moses (Lev.
12:1-4; Deut.
23:10-14), but nobody's in a hurry to close hospitals and pharmacies.
We all have ancient Israel's contagion: "From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment" (Isa.
1:6).
II.
The only antidote has "Gospel" on the label
(Rm.
1: 16).
Look around-if anything, sin has greater influence now than it did with ancient man.
Violence, greed, lust, selfishness, drunkenness, drugs ... no society yea, no individual-has mastered sin.
Paul would say today what he said in A.D. 57: "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Rm.
3:23).
Mankind has not conquered carnal desires.
We are still prone to give in to the lusts of the flesh, the Lust of the eyes, and the Pride of life (I Jn. 2:15 17).
We cannot overcome without the power of the written Word (Heb.
4:12).
Jesus used its power to defeat Satan in the "showdown in the desert" (Mt.
4: 1 -11);
Paul urged Timothy by it to "make a good warfare" (I Tim.
1: 18);
and we can only beat our adversary with the same time tested weapon (Eph.
6:17).
III.
The Reality of Sin has not Changed
Since the eternal God is the One who determines what sin is, sin does not change from culture to culture or with the passing winds of time.
Men may change what they consider sin or what they call it (Isa.
5:20), but it will not alter reality.
Sin is still transgressing God's law (I Jn. 2:4),
violating one's conscience (Rm.
14:23),
omitting a duty (Jas.
4:17),
and, in general, "all unrighteousness" (I Jn. 5:17).
We've all done it; thus
We all need the cure that only the Gospel can give
Conclusion
Let’s not be deceived at the erroneous ways of this world...
