Tonight I was out on visitation with my church, and we went to visit someone who came to a youth activity. My youth pastor presented the Gospel, and I was very upset by something I have noticed. There was no repentance. He didn't mention that Jesus was God (I'll give him the benefit of the doubt on this one because I think the kid already knew, and I know he usually tells them). He didn't mention the resurrection. And at the end he led him in a prayer where he just told God that he accepts him. I was very upset by this, throughout the Bible the theme is repent and believe. There must be repentance in order to have sins be forgiven (Acts 2:38, 3:19; Luke 13:3). And how can they believe a story that they haven't been fully told? In Romans 10 Paul writes, "...because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.", so you must know that Jesus is God, and that he was raised from the dead. I don't think that he realizes that he is leaving things out and that many of the people he has lead to Christ may not be saved. Has anyone else noticed this hole in the Gospel that is being presented to so many?
