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.

“We testify that Christ is able to change man’s nature, and then good fruits will come as a matter of course. But I am afraid that in many Sunday-schools the children are taught a different doctrine, somewhat after this fashion: ‘Now, dear children, be very good, and obey your parents, and love Jesus, and you will be saved.’ That is not the gospel, and it is not true. Often do I hear it said, ‘Love Jesus, dear children.’ That is not the gospel. It is ‘Trust Him–believe.’ Not love, but faith is the saving grace, and that love of Jesus of a sentimental kind, which does not spring out of faith in Him, is a spurious emotion, a counterfeit of love, not at all the love of God, shed abroad in the heart by the Holy Spirit. The root of the matter is, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shalt be saved;’ and that is the gospel for a child of two years of age, and the gospel for a man of a hundred. There is only one gospel for all that are born on the face of the earth–‘Believe in Jesus.’”

“But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” -Titus 3:4-7
