Gospel Lite

That is what Phil Johnson is calling his blog post. “Gospel Lite.”

Here is a sample:
“Soon evangelicals weren’t mentioning sin at all anymore. It was as if they suddenly forgot that the human dilemma is all about eternal and spiritual matters. Instead, by the mid 1980s, the issues that dominated evangelical pulpits were temporal and psychological: low self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, a sense of purpose in life, a feeling of belonging, and (of course) how to be happy, healthy, wealthy, successful, and full of self-esteem. Evangelicals portrayed “the gospel” as a quick ‘n’ easy answer to those questions, and little else.”

I think it fits in nicely with my post earlier today. I actually read Phil’s post after I wrote my post.
