“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matt. 24:14
The gospel is about Jesus and the kingdom of God. So it is not about human kingdoms or kings. Jesus is the way into the kingdom of God and Jesus is the King. The kingdom of God wants to permeate every area of human life.
The gospel should not be mixed or colored by politics, nationalism or culture. The gospel is from God to man and we should not smear the gospel with our political, nationalist or cultural fingers. The gospel, on the other hand, can influence our politics, nationalism and culture. There is a huge difference in this.
Unfortunately, a defiled gospel has often been presented to people. Stained by politics, nationalism or culture. Let us make a clear distinction and let the kingdom of God, which is “righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 14:17), characterize the messengers and methods.
God bless you.
