In the gospel recorded by the apostle John and in the 3rd chapter, the musts are revealed:
1) "You must be born again" (v7)
2) "the Son of Man must be lifted up" (v14)
3) "He must become greater; I must become less." (v30)

The non-negotiables (musts) in the gospel of Jesus Christ are nonetheless custom-packaged for each believer:

"A person can receive only what is given them from heaven." (John 3:27 NIV)

There is no other way into Mordor than the pass below Minas Morgul.

As for you, Motar, Matthew 25:31-46 pretty much says it all.

There is an Abort button, LL. Ask the Captain. The Self-Destruct sequence can be interrupted.

Also, there are plans for a new habitat with a new Commander. He's out of this world : )

In Matthew 5 to 7, Jesus tells us why we should hate gays and carry a loaded carbine, all of the time.

Guess I need to, seeing as how none of our alleged Christians, on this board or anyplace else, does.

Hey, Jesus was a good ol' boy! Who else'd use his Gawd-given power to turn water into Budweiser?

Party down, boys!

You are standing in the gap, TB. Preach on. Don't forget to live it. Intercede for those in need : )

Haven't heard any "good news" . Only guilt, fear and punishment. Sounds like bad news to me. You have breaking news Motar?

Do you think getting the author right would add to the validity of your comments or take away from it? The correct answer is Mary of Bethany is the author of the Gospel of John (the Baptist)

2Jo:1:1:
The elder unto the elect lady and her children,
whom I love in the truth;
and not I only,
but also all they that have known the truth;

Too bad it is all a fairy tale. When you die you turn into topsoil.

For the most part. You missed this part though.

Ec:3:20:
All go unto one place;
all are of the dust,
and all turn to dust again.

Ec:12:7:
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was:
and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

If you believe in spirits.And the approved god.

The Author of Scripture advises that quarrels about Bible scribes are unprofitable and divisive, MHz.

War, poverty, indifference , corruption in politics and religion, rampant crime in the streets , catastrophic diseases , children and elderly suffering,,,you want more? Where is this good news? Religion as I said presents guilt, fear and possible punishment for not walking the straight and narrow. What's good about that?

In the fifteenth century your "good news' to the locals of the Iberian Peninsula was anything but good. It was just the opposite.

Agree with you concerning the bad news, LL. Immorality is persistent and pervasive in the human family. Also agree that religion is not the remedy. Religious doctrine and practice originate with immoral humans. This is not good or promising news.

The "good news " has never been preached by anyone.

gospel (n.)
Old English godspel "glad tidings announced by Jesus; one of the four gospels," literally "good spell," from god "good" (see good (adj.)) + spel "story, message" (see spell (n.1)). A translation of Latin bona adnuntiatio, itself a translation of Greek euangelion "reward for bringing good news" (see evangel).
Online Etymology Dictionary (external - login to view)

"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14 NIV)

The term gospel is used 92 times in the NIV Bible. All references are New Testament.

Everyone knows what gospel means. What's your point Ma'am?

Submit to a master or burn for eternity. Not my idea of good news. Sounds rather psychotic though.

Agree, Cliffy. Human philosophy such as this is bad news.

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ." (Colossians 2:8 NIV)

Some of the gospel (good news):

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:28-29 NIV)

"A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he has brought justice through to victory." (Matthew 12:20 NIV)
