Message: “Scandalous Salvation (Mark 2:13–17)” from Doug Van Meter

Doug Van Meter - 10 June 2018

Scandalous Salvation (Mark 2:13–17)

Almost everything Jesus did and said was scandalous to those who would not repent and believe on him. This remains true today—at least for those who, like the scribes and Pharisees, were self-righteous. The self-righteous are offended by the message and ministry of Jesus because he is merciful only to those who are not righteous; he heals only those who acknowledge that they are not well. The new thing in Christianity is not the doctrine that God saves sinners. No Jew would have denied that. It is the assertion that God loves and saves them as sinners that is the authentic and glorious doctrine of true Christianity in any age.
