Getting the Gospel Right

From Matt Chandler's message at the Desiring God Pastor's Conference:

"The gospel matters. Getting the gospel right matters. If you get the gospel wrong, and you don’t distinguish the difference between what morality is and what the gospel is, then what you’ve done at best is restrained the hearts of people, but you will not see their hearts transformed.

"If you don’t get the gospel right then what ends up happening is that men and women become conformed to a pattern of religion but they are not transformed by the Holy Spirit of God.

"Without the gospel you inoculate people against Jesus Christ. You give them just enough of Him to never know Him. The gospel matters."
