You can “believe” the Gospel and be a slave Master, segregationist, abusive pastor, adulterer, liar, & cold-hearted person.

The gospel is an entry way into a new world, it has the power to regenerate but it isn’t the end goal. It is the door at the beginning of a journey...
I will never understand the worldview that says, “just preach the gospel”. Such a worldview has more to do with superstition than Christianity. Christianity says, “believe the Gospel so that you may be born again and empowered by the Spirit to live in accordance with God’s Word.”
Magicians believe in the power of incantations. Preachers are to believe in the power of the preached Word. The Gospel isn’t a magical incantation that one utters & to change people into Christlike saints. It is good news that regenerates, but it is the beginning of a journey.
I can understand a revivalist preacher who “just preaches the gospel” & then moves on leaving new creations in the care of local pastors. I can’t understand pastors having that mindset as they’re commissioned to preach the whole counsel of God’s Word & guide saints on the journey
The Gospel is the Good News that has the power to make us into what we MUST BE in order to live how we MUST LIVE. “Just preaching the Gospel” is lazy ministry. It makes new people & ops out of teaching them how they must be as new creations. Preach the Whole Word. All 66 books!
