Welcome to 4TG – For the Gospel. The purpose of this website is simple. We desire to lift up the name of Jesus Christ by focusing on the good news that his life, death and resurrection brings to those whose faith rests solely in him. The apostle Paul called this good news “the power of God unto salvation” (Romans 1:16) and the “ministry of reconciliation” between sinful humans and a Holy God (2 Corinthians 5:16-21).
Here on 4TG, we have a special burden to share the gospel with our Seventh-day Adventist brothers and sisters, because in Adventism, the gospel has been buried under layers of human regulations, extra-biblical writings and cultural practices. The Adventist distinctives have effectively displaced the most important Christian distinctive–that Jesus Christ lived a perfect life and shed his blood for sinners who are utterly lost without him.
This video composed by Lane Chaplin was made in response to being “tagged” on YouTube to share five facts about himself. Instead of posting the usual mundane personal trivia, he laid bare the truth about himself as seen through the lens of Scripture. These facts are not really unique to Lane but are shared by all who are convicted by the depth of their depravity and the magnitude of God’s gracious forgiveness. Please watch this video and ask yourself whether God’s grace is your most precious possession, and if it is not, please prayerfully consider the magnitude of your sin and your desperate need for what the apostle Paul called “the washing of regeneration and renewal” (Titus 3:4-8).
“I acknowledge myself to be a sinner in the sight of God, justly deserving his displeasure and without hope, except in his sovereign mercy.” -from the Presbyterian vows of church membership

"Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” (1 Peter 4:12-13 ESV)
