The Crux of the Gospel

I just read Contratimes’ latest, and I am thoroughly impressed. Though his topic is the problem of evil, Mr. Gnade made an excellent summary of what Christianity is about. As the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:2,

“For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”

That’s the Gospel. Christ and Him crucified. Now go and read Mr. Gnade’s excellent essay—it is well worth your time!

(And, for those of you folks out there that have issue with the idea of Christ going to Hell, ponder this: what if Hell is not the absence of God, as often posited, but rather His divine punishment? Would not Christ taking that punishment be entirely appropriate, rather than the contradiction some see it?)
