The Gospel According to Pink
April 13, 2009 1 Comment
That’s Arthur Walkington Pink and his book, “The Sovereignty of God” has been burning up my lunch hour.
Here are his words on the Gospel:
Concerning the character and contents of the Gospel, the utmost confusion prevails today. The Gospel is not an offer to be tossed around by evangelical peddlers.
The Gospel is no mere invitation, but a proclamation–a proclamation concerning Christ; true whether men believe it or not. No man is asked to believe that Christ died for him in particular.
The Gospel, in brief, is this: Christ died for sinners, you are a sinner, believe in Christ and you shall be saved.
Admittedly, Pink’s words have to do more with what the Gospel isn’t and his brief definition does not (cannot) surpass the Apostle’s divinely inspired definition, read it here.
