The Gospel!! I was watching one of my favorite Christmas movies,"a Christmas carol" by Charles Dickens, and I have started to notice that something was missing in their attempt to deliver a Christian message. It's the gospel. Not only did Scrooge change on his own, but that he only changed his selfish, greedy ways because he was threatened with eternal torment. A true believer does not change on their own. It is the ongoing redemptive work of Jesus Christ in him or her that changes them and no true believer should ever come to Christ because of the fear of hell; rather they should come to Him because of what Jesus Christ did for them on the cross. That is the Christian message that is missing in this moralistic story.
