For Those Who Talk About "The Gospel"

Is the “good news” that... 

(1) Somehow, because of what Jesus has done, we now have the power we need to live righteously?


(2) Somehow, because of what Jesus has done, our inability to live righteously no longer condemns us?

Or is it these two things in equal combination? Perhaps something else entirely?

What do you think?


  1. I think it's better for me to think of it as 2... but how could it be different for different people?!

  2. They could be different for different people because different people have different perceptions of what the Gospel actually is. Not that I'm saying there isn't a "right" way to perceive the Gospel. I think there is, and I think one of those answers is better than the other. I'm asking the question because I think how someone answers it says a lot about how they perceive "the Gospel."
