PONDER on THIS for Friday, July 18th, 2008 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“Today, people think of the Gospel as the first few books of the new testament; but they don’t seem to pick-up on the reality that Jesus wasn’t in His own stories, He didn’t carry a Bible, and was at odds with religious convention because they enslaved people with their customs rather than empowering them with the New Wisdom He was teaching. Of course, the wisdom wasn’t New, but it was new to most of the people who heard Jesus speak. Focusing on teachers, events, and stories, is to lose sight of the lessons of those teachers, and the reasons the events and stories have endured. No, the gospel that is taught and preached today is not the same Gospel Jesus taught.”

Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
