I’m on vacation this week with no access to the internet, so here is some more interesting reading from Scot McKnight on the The King Jesus Gospel.
The article does a nice job bringing out the fact that the King Jesus Gospel does not exclude salvation, but includes it under the larger message of Jesus as King. He makes a fair observation about “once saved always saved” as it relates to Calvinism, and he is an Arminian.
Note the volatility in comment thread. For those who are fully involved in what McKnight calls the “Salvation Culture” it is extremely difficult to see the point being made that the gospel preached by Jesus, the Apostles, and Paul was not the same message we Evangelicals have inherited from Revivalism.
