Dear Atheist

Editor’s Pick: The Gospel (in a Nutshell)

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW.


The Gospel is a very simple message that can be hard to communicate.  I hope this page, by taking from my post GRACE AND TRUTH, does justice to the message, and encourages you to take a step of faith towards God.  It explains the purpose of the Law, and the need for our salvation through Jesus Christ, as well as how we ought to live our lives, after grace…

John’s testimony is a good starting point in understanding the Gospel message.

“For the Law was given through Moses; Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).

What is the Law? The Law is the set of commandments by which we shall live without offense before God. As it was given to the Isrealites, the Law was like a manual for humans living in a fallen world. It considered the various areas by which offences would come and provided a way for justice to prevail. According to this Law, the penalty for disobedience and sin is death, a just recompense to God, against whom the offence was ultimately committed.

“For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all” (Jam 2:10).
