05 Jul Is Jesus the ONLY Way? (4/5) | Joshua Tongol

 

Location: Grace Communion International, Crossway

 

How INCLUSIVE is the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Did Christ embrace ALL of humanity or only SOME?

 

Do ALL RELIGIONS lead to God or is CHRISTIANITY the only way? Or have we misunderstood it altogether?

 

What did Jesus mean when He said, “It is finished”?

 

The “CONDITIONAL God” (“I love and accept you only IF you love and accept me”) being preached today looks very different from the UNCONDITIONAL love of God that we all know in our hearts.

 

Sadly, much of what is believed as the “gospel” has created so much division, intolerance, hatred and wars. Ironically, many Christians cannot even agree with each other, yet each group thinks God is on their side and against everyone else.

 

It’s time to question, challenge and rethink what the GOOD NEWS really is for the world that God loves.

 

This sermon will create a huge paradigm shift for many people if they are open.

 

Please listen to the entire message (5 parts) in order to get the full context of what Joshua is saying.

 

Here are the things that will be covered in the message:

 

-The tension between our head and our hearts
The “God of conditions”
-Is God’s love different than ours?
-God’s dream before creation (i.e. adoption)
-Understanding the love within the Trinity
-Understanding the union of God and humanity in the incarnation
-“Born again” and historical reconciliation
-“Separation” between God and man
-The Parable of the Loving Father
-What’s the difference between believers and unbelievers?
-Living as children of God

10 May Was Jesus FORSAKEN by the Father? | Is God Too Holy to Look on Sin? | Joshua Tongol

 

Is God too holy too look on Sin?
Was Jesus forsaken by His Father on the Cross?

 

These are two of the building blocks that make up the evangelical penal substitutionary theory.

 

Why does it matter? How we understand the crucifixion shapes our understanding of who God is and what He is like. And ultimately, our understanding of God’s character also shapes our lives.

 

Problems with these ideas:

 

-Based upon a “legal” understanding of holiness and the gospel
-Distorts the unity within the Trinity
-Goes against common sense
-Creates a distorted view of an untrustworthy Father

15 Apr Does Sin SEPARATE You From God? | Challenging Penal Substitution | Joshua Tongol

 

Does sin SEPARATE you from God? Is there a great chasm dividing humanity and God because of sin? Is there something a person must do in order to remove this separation?

 

Many Christians have been taught that sin separates us from God. In fact, when some people share the Gospel (GOOD NEWS), they begin with the idea of man being separated from God first. But is this where one should begin?

 

Moreover, this whole idea of “separation” is one of the building blocks of the Evangelical penal substitutionary theory.

 

Problems with SEPARATION?

 

-It’s not Christian
-Rooted in pagan dualism and not the Scriptures
-Has caused many Christians to suffer mentally and emotionally
-Denies the purpose of the incarnation and the finished work of Jesus Christ

22 Mar Was Jesus PUNISHED by the Father? | Challenging Penal Substitution | Joshua Tongol

 

What is wrong with the EVANGELICAL GOSPEL? Penal substitutionary theory is at the heart of the evangelical gospel. BUT what if it is WRONG?

 

Why does it matter? Our understanding of the Cross shapes our understanding of how we view God. And how we view God shapes the way we live.

 

Problems with penal substitution:

 

-Divides the Trinity
-Distorts forgiveness
-Contradicts the life and teachings of Jesus Christ
-Misunderstands justice
-Never found in parabolic form

 

Recommended resources:

 

“Stricken by God?” by Brad Jersak and Michael Hardin
“The Jesus Driven Life” by Michael Hardin

28 Feb Will the Real Gospel Please Stand Up? (1/6) | Joshua Tongol

 

What is the real Gospel?

 

Sadly, the Gospel today is no longer GOOD NEWS. In many ways, the “good news” being preached today is really BAD NEWS. Many ministers today are preaching an angry, violent, and judgmental God where GOOD NEWS has lost it’s meaning.

 

The gospel of grace has turned into a gospel of performance. The God of peace has turned into a God of violence and hatred. And the God of unconditional love has turned into a God of “I love you IF…”

 

This sermon will create a huge paradigm shift for many people. Some will get upset, while others will be liberated.

 

Please listen to the entire message (6 parts) in order to get the full context of what Joshua is saying.

 

Here are the things that will be covered in the message:

 

-What is not the Gospel
-A challenge to penal substitutionary theory
-What (or Who) is the Gospel?
-Adoption
-Identification
-Who is born again?
-Why did Jesus come and die?
-Jesus is greater than Adam
-“Receiving” Christ
-Saved by whose faith?
-Biblical repentance
-Why preach the Gospel?
