#9A Creation: Law and Gospel

We have generations who don’t understand the Bible’s original plot—the beginning.  Therefore, they don’t’ fully understand the subsequent message of Jesus dying on the Cross and being raised from the dead. They also don’t understand why they need to believe in Christ in order to be saved.

When I ask people in the Church, ‘What is the gospel?’ I hear people say, ‘Well, it’s the good news: Jesus died on the Cross and was raised from the dead.’

And while this is true, you can’t really understand the good news of the gospel unless you first understand the bad news found in Genesis.  Many in the Church say we need to go out and ‘get people saved.’ But consider this—most people don’t even yet know they’re lost.  So, why would they believe they need to be saved? Saved from what? Saved by whom? Saved for what purpose? You see, unless people realize their need for a Savior, telling them that Jesus ‘loves them’ means very little” (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.38-39).
