Another Gospel

GSE4 Thematic Address 1: “The Gospel of Jesus Christ” - Abp Nicholas Okoh

"...the deity of Christ is increasingly becoming offensive in some quarters in our communion. For others the uniqueness of Christ cannot be taught in our pluralistic society. But pluralism was there, in the first country. The Jewish religion was there, so were the Greek Philosophies and religions, hence it was said that the cross was foolishness to the Greeks, and a stumbling block to the Jews. The creeds, the 39 articles (see 2, 3, 4) and the Holy Scriptures, all uphold the deity and uniqueness of Jesus, the Christ. To deny these fundamentals is to abandon the way; it is apostasy; it is 'another gospel,' which is condemned in scripture."


What are stumbling blocks for some are the blocks with which others pave the way.

  2. Query, is anyone listening to this obviously holy man?

    (BTW, the first of his two concluding points is equally astute, I would say.)

    Cheers.
