The Gandhi Gospel

It doesn’t get much better than this…

“When the saving gospel of Jesus Christ is doing its job, it doesn’t gather unbelieving admirers like Gandhi and Jefferson: it offends people (John 6:61; Luke 7:23). The Cross, in its day, was scandalous. It was a “stone of stumbling” and a “rock of offense” (Romans 9:33; 1 Peter 2:8). Today that Cross still cuts across people’s path, either to draw them to Christ or to turn them away. And many don’t like it.”
