“There is nothing easy or plain about the Gospe”
Sure there is. God made in pure and simple, so that even a child can understand. In fact, unless we accept Christ as a child, we can not enter the kingdom.
The prudes and wise are the ones thrown out.
yet, there is a great depth of the Gospel as well, becuae the good news IS Christ Jesus. he Himself is the Gospel. His death and resurrection is the Gospel. We simply ask Him to help us, forgive us, and repent, and Christ will never refuse anyone who comes to Him.
The Holy Writ as a whole has some very difficult things for us to love and study and ponder, but the salvation of our Lord is pure and simple.
