The gospel by its very definition is literally the good news. It has been preached through all generations since the beginning of the church.

Before we dig in, please understand that this article by no means is meant to indict every evangelical church in the Western world as a proliferator of false doctrine. There is a substantial number of churches who haven’t compromised the gospel message.
