The Gospel is not complicated or over Contextualized

So many people want to make the Gospel relevant by over contextualizing it. I long for the deceptive-relational folks to examine the History of our Church Fathers, rather than coming up with new means to share what has not changed. I have heard this from a few people lately and it is very logical....."We are relevant to a culture the more we look different than that culture, otherwise we are just another person in that culture." That does not mean we are ignorant of the culture, but separate as we belong to God. Thank you to Aaron Shaf for the video, I thank God for John Piper as well.
