Why I’ll Never Refer to the Gospel As ‘Scandalous’

I will never refer to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as scandalous because God, in His written Word to mankind, never did. Why then should I?

The Gospel is good news, not scandalous, that is, by definition – representative of wicked behavior.

Only Gods Son, Jesus, was ever referred to as such.

See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who believes in him will never be put to shame. – Romans 9:33

Jesus Christ, our Lord, is scandalous to the unregenerate world, particularly the Jews, but the Gospel is not.

So please stop calling the Gospel of Jesus Christ scandalous, especially when speaking to other believers in Christ.
