What Do You Think is the "Gospel"?

"The content of a gospel without demands in respect of justice, peace, and equity suggests a conscience-soothing Jesus, with an unscandalous cross, an otherworldly kingdom, a private, inwardly limited spirit, a pocket God, a spiritualized Bible, and an escapist church. Its goal is a happy, comfortable, and successful life, obtainable through the forgiveness of an abstract sinfulness by faith in an unhistorical Christ." -Orlando Costas
