Gospel Reductionism Today – “Blues Brothers Theology” by Rev. John Frahm III

There is a great article on the Reformation Today website by Rev. John Frahm III. It also has some clever graphics for all you visual learners and a string of links to some excellent segments from Issues, Etc.

The article is about the “old” modern trick called gospel reductionism. The old guard liberals in the LCMS tried to excise the miracles and morality from the Bible by reducing God’s word to the Gospel. The article is very timely because Rev. Frahm does the important work of showing how the new guard church-growthers in the LCMS have a version of Gospel reductionism all their own.
