Scot McKnight apparently recently took a stab at a brief gospel presentation that manages to de-stabilize the individualism of most presentations I've heard. He preached a gospel that manages to keep the church front-and-center in God's purposes (as it should be, I think). See what you think:
you and everyone else have a sin problem that separates you and
everyone else from God, from yourselves, from one another, and from the
good world God made for you.
The good news is that Jesus lived
for you, died for you, was raised for you, and sent the Spirit for you
– so you all can live as the beloved community.
If you enter
into Jesus' story, by repentance and faith, you can be reconnected to
God, to yourself, to others, and to this world.
Those who are
reconnected like this will live now as God's community and will find
themselves eternally in union with God and communion with others.
who preach this gospel will not deconstruct the church. Instead, they
will participate in what God is doing: constructing the kingdom
community even now.
