Just an update on Daniel’s earlier posting. The nice folks at JAAL got back to us extremely quickly, and the response website for the campaign is actually www.allaboutlife.com.au, with a link to “tell me more about Jesus”. So I followed the link and found a very interesting gospel presentation. Frankly I think it’s a bit of a mess. To start with you need to actually find your way into it through a little multimedia presentation, and I think that many people would probably not bother. Then there is a multi-part audio visual extravaganza, different depending on which part of the first page you clicked on. Watch it yourself and see what you think, but I suspect that most people won’t sit through the whole thing. Even if they do they won’t hear anything about sin, righteousness, repentance and faith, or God’s amazing kindness and grace shown through Jesus’ death and resurrection. At least not in the one I managed to watch my way through. AAAAARRRRGGGHHH!
Okay, deep cleansing breaths everyone. I really recommend you take a panadol before you watch it. Be prepared for a broad cross section of modern day dodgy so-called gospel presentations. This is exactly the sort of thing that I was talking about yesterday when I was concerned about love. God is not your girlfriend, people! We don’t need some sort of big cosmic cuddle, we need saving from the righteous wrath of God. His love in providing for our salvation is soooo amazing! Surely that’s a far better gospel than what has been presented on www.allaboutlife.com.au !!!!!!!
