The G.O.S.P.E.L.

The video below is one of the clearest, most clever, and most convincing GOSPEL presentations I have ever heard.  It is quoted below for further clarity. The artist is named Propaganda, and he can be found at Humble Beast Records.

It’s the full story of life crushed into four minutes

The entirety of humanity in the palm of your hand crushed into one sentence

Listen, it’s intense, right?

GOD. OUR. SINS. PAYING. EVERYONE. LIFE.

The greatest story ever told that’s hardly ever told

GOD.  Yes, GOD.

The maker and giver of life, and by life I mean any and all manner of substance

Seen and unseen; what can and can’t be touched

Thoughts, image, emotions; Love, atoms and oceans

GOD

All of which His handiwork, one of which His masterpiece

Made so uniquely that angels looked curiously

The one thing in creation that was made in His imagery

A concept so cold it’s the reason I stay bold

That GOD breathed into man and he became a living soul

Formed with the intent of being infinitely, intimately fond

Creator and creation held in eternal bond

And it was placed in perfect paradise until something went wrong

The species got deceived and started lusting for His job

An odd list of complaints, as if the system ain’t working

And used that same breath He graciously gave us to curse Him

And that sin seed spread through our souls’ genome

And by nature of your nature, your species, you participated in the mutiny

OUR

Yes, our sins.

It’s nature-inherited.

Blackened the human heart.  It was over before it started.

Deceived from day one and led away by our own lust

There’s not a religion in the world that doesn’t agree that something’s wrong with us

The question is what is it?  And how do we fix it?

Are we eternally separated from a God that may or may not have existed?

But that’s another subject.  Let’s keep grinding.

Besides, trying to prove God is like defending a lion.

Homie, it don’t need your help.  Just unlock the cage.

Let’s move on on how our debt can be paid.

Short and sweet: the problem is

SIN

Yes, sin.

It’s a cancer, an asthma, choking out our life force

Forcing separation from a perfect and holy GOD

And the only way to get back is to get back to perfection

But silly us…trying to pass the course of life without referring to a syllabus

This is us: heap up your good deeds, chant, pray, meditate

But all of that, of course, is spraying cologne on a corpse

Or you could choose to ignore it, as if something don’t stink

It’s like stepping in dog poop and refusing to wipe your shoe

But all of that ends with, “How good is good enough?”

Take your silly list of good deeds and line them up against perfection

Good luck

That’s life past your pay grade

The cost of your soul?  You ain’t got a big enough piggy bank

But you could give it a shot?

But I suggest you throw away the list

Because even your good acts are an extension of your selfishness

But here’s where it gets interesting

I hope you’re closely listening

Please don’t get it twisted.  It’s what makes our faith unique.

Here’s what God says is Part A of the Gospel:

You can’t fix yourself.  Quit trying.  It’s impossible.

Sin brings death.

Give GOD His breath back.  You owe Him!

Eternally separated and the only way to fix it is someone die in your place

And that someone’s got to be PERFECT or the payment ain’t permanent

So if and when you find a perfect person, get that person

To literally trade their perfection for your sin and death in

Clearly, since the only one who can meet God’s criteria is GOD

GOD sent Himself as JESUS to pay the cost for us

His righteousness, His death, functions as

PAYMENT

Yes, payment.

Wrote a check with His life

But at the Resurrection we all cheered, cause that means the CHECK CLEARED!

Pierced feet, pierced hands, blood-stained Son of Man

Fullness, forgiveness, free passage into the Promised Land

That same breath GOD breathed into us GOD gave up to redeem us

And anyone and everyone, and by everyone I mean

EVERYONE

Who puts their faith and trust in Him, and Him alone

Can stand in full confidence of GOD’s forgiveness

And here’s what the promise is:

That you are guaranteed full access to return to perfect unity

By simply believing in CHRIST and CHRIST alone

You are receiving

LIFE

Yes, life.

This is the GOSPEL

GOD. OUR. SINS. PAYING. EVERYONE. LIFE.
