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
A cure for sin (forgiveness) is still man's most basic spiritual need
Medical treatments have been around at least since Moses (Lev.
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.

Sin is still transgressing God's law (I Jn. 2:4),
violating one's conscience (Rm.
omitting a duty (Jas.
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
Let’s not be deceived at the erroneous ways of this world...
