We're just going to focus on the gospel

One of the more significant Christian heresies, promulgated especially by the privileged, is the notion that one can just focus on "the gospel," as if it didn't apply, and even take sides, in matters of life in the world. If God's Word is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, then surely it isn't some soft and comfy thing that we all get to hug Sunday morning because it only softly connects. The gospel has contour, and outline, and shape, and it looks like the poor, and the hungry, and the victim. And it is ready to rumble.
