Hell’s Best Kept Secret: The Distinction Between Law and Gospel
I was fascinated by this video in which two Evangelicals are explaining what, apparently, is a "discovery" for them, and which they are urging on fellow Evangelicals. They are very blunt about the "fall away" rate of those who claim to be making "decisions" for Jesus, and they present what we Lutherans would identify as the proper distinction between Law and Gospel. If you watch the video provided over at The Wittenberg Trail, I would be interested in your reaction. It is kind of sad that we Lutherans are tempted to regard the proper distinction between Law and Gospel as a bit "old school" and sometimes think we have to find some other way, when precisely at the same time Evangelicals are discovering "hell’s best kept secret." They are quite direct, "The tragedy of modern evangelism" is getting rid of the Law and they have "degenerated" the Gospel into happiness; which they describe as the "unscriptural nature" of this popular teaching.
