The Offense of the Gospel

“The gospel, by telling us Jesus died for us, is also really insulting. It tells us that we are so wicked that only the death of the Son of God could save us. This offends the modern cult of self-expression and the popular belief in the innate goodness of humanity.”

– Timothy Keller, The Message of Romans (Redeemer Presbyterian Church, 2003), 2.
