What is real Christianity? Jeffrey Wilson believes that "a hybrid Christianity which is essentially man-centred, materialistic and worldly, and shamefully dishonouring to the Lord Jesus Christ" is almost endemic in the Western world, and particularly in the USA. The Authentic Gospel traces the root cause of this situation to a fatal assumption that it is possible to become a Christian by having Christ as Saviour irrespective of whether he is received and served as Lord. By a careful examination of what the Bible means by such ideas as faith, conversion and commitment, it misleads those who follow it. In direct, plain-speaking style, Jeffrey Wilson arrests, instructs and redirects us to the authentic gospel which Christ and the apostles preached and taught.
About the Author
This book hits the nail on the head with what is wrong with the modern gospel. It argues that repentance and following Christ as Lord -- giving up all to follow Him -- is part of the biblical gospel. That making an emotional decision and coming forward at an altar call, with no change in one's life after that "decision", is not genuine conversion.
