What the Gospel Is Not, In Seven Words or Less

Inspired by Nick Ahern’s contribution, “The Gospel In Seven Words Or Less“, to the previous Christian Century post, I’m christening a contest of my own.  In the original post, people come up with a sentence (no more than seven words long) that boils down the message of the Christian Gospel.  One of his examples was “Having died and rise, Jesus conquers death.”

English: By Rembrandt.
“The Evangelist Matthew Inspired by an Angel” (Rembrandt)

In this contest, however, you are challenged to present (in seven words or less) a gospel that we Christians sometimes find ourselves believing, even though it isn’t  the heart of the Gospel.

Example:  “Jesus Christ, my slightly judgmental genie.”

Your turn 🙂

    1. Wow, that’s a pretty good one. I get the whole “Christians suck at being Christians” thing, but faith in this “doubtful Jesus” calls people way beyond niceness… even as far as loving one’s enemies.
