Rhetorical Leverage Removed

Rhetorical Leverage Removed March 17, 2012

One of the points I have made in my King Jesus Gospel book is that the soterian gospel is a rhetorical package that seeks to move folks from a state of liminality (the sense of being loved and under God’s wrath at the same time), almost always rooted in the threat of what could happen after death, to salvation. This recent graph from CT shows that the soterian gospel’s rhetorical leverage is being removed.
