Excerpt from Glad Tidings, or the Way of Life
There is much misunderstanding in the minds of many in regard to the word Gospel. Some think of everything they hear preached from the Bible under this general appellation Whether the minister be preaching on the being of a God, the immortality of the soul, or on the moral duties which arise from our social relationships, it is all, by such persons, called preach ing the Gospel. Some time ago we heard a minister preach on the subject of prayer. It was a faithful and powerful sermon. It lifted the soul up to God, and made many a hearer say, It is good to be here. At the close of the services we heard one of the hearers say to another, That was a fine Gospel sermon. Now, the fact is, there was not one word of Gospel in it. A man may preach a whole year, or for that part, a Whole lifetime. And preach truth, too, and yet not preach the Gospel.
