Coming Soon - My Youtube Gospel Presentation

My Rob Bell Exposed video on youtube has garnered a lot of criticism from those in the emergent camp. This has already been discussed extensively on this blog so I won't retread old ground. But I will zero in on one common complaint. There are many who have asked for me to bring an alternative to the table. If I don't like Nooma videos then why don't I come up with an alternative.

Well, my 5 "Trooma" videos are now ready to go. They are five short youtube videos between two and three minutes long that are meant to combine into a simple, clear, and thorough Gospel presentation. In my recent series "The Anatomy Of The Gospel" I identified five core elements of a Gospel proclamation.

1. The Holiness of God.
2. The sinfulness of man.
3. The necessity of judgment.
4. The Atoning work of Christ.
5. The human response it demands.

The five videos will each be devoted to one of those subjects in the above mentioned order. I am not deluded enough to think that they can match the production quality of the Nooma videos. But I hope you will agree that their content is thought provoking, biblically sound, and a compelling presentation of the Christian Gospel. My Danish friends Filip Ray and Jonas Bock looked after the entire technical side allowing me to devote my time to preparing the script and presenting it. Jonas has also done an outstanding job with production, editing, and Danish subtitles on a shoestring budget. Coming Monday, I look forward to presenting part 1 of this series.

As a prelude, I have included this video of Paul Washer and his diagnosis of the "modern gospel" . . .

I praise God to your commitment to defending the "trooth". Thank you, brother. As far as quality of video is concerned, I'd much rather have substance than style.

I am very much looking forward to your YouTube presentations. Blessings to you and your crew of two.

Wow, I don't know the Gospel and I don't know much. Thank you very much. I'm really glad that you know it is a walk with God and not a moment. But when you come out saying that I don't know anything, I really don't want to listen to you. I pray for humility in your life.

Kabut, when did I say that you don't know anything?

Kabut said...

Sorry I should of clarified, not you but Paul Washer in his video. From 0:50 to about 1:10 on the video he says that we don't know anything about the gospel.
I'm sorry, but if I were preaching I diffenetly would not tell people that they don't know anything, especially when alot of them probably know God and his Gospel.

Hi Cameron,
I woke up this morning feeling convicyed for what I said yesterday. I must have been in a bad mood yesterday (maybe jetlag) and I should not be judging others.
This should go to Paul Washer, but I am just going to post it on here since I wrote my comments on here.

James 4:11-12
11 Don’t speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God’s law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you. 12 God alone, who gave the law, is the Judge. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to judge your neighbor?

Luke 6:37
37"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

I am sorry,

Kabut, I know Paul Washer personally and I have to say that he is one of the most humble men I have ever met. His comment that you take exception to is when he addresses his audience in general terms. And based on the state of the average modern day church goer (in America 80% of people profess Christ but only 10% of these have a biblical worldview) he is right in what he is saying. I recommend you check out more of Paul Washer!
