What is My One Sentence Bible?


As much as John the Baptist preached a gospel of repentance preparing the way for Jesus, he also preached one of cultural justice. Luke 3:10-14

The devil tests us when opportunities arise in the devil’s favor. Luke 4:13

Without the power of the Spirit of God it’s impossible to sustain doing what the Lord needs of us. Luke 4:14

Much love.

    Hi Andrew,
    I can appreciate what you are trying to do with the on sentence bible, but I have to comment on this one.
    John the Baptist didn’t come preaching forgiveness…. but repentance, and bearing fruit in keeping with repentance….. without repentance, there is no forgiveness.

    The response after repenting, had social justice elements to it…. but repentance is the first thing.
    Matt 3:1-2
    John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying,
    ” Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

    Matt 3:8
    ” Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance. (here you might plug in some of the social justice elements)

    Mark 1:4
    John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
    (first things first)

    Acts 19:4
    Paul said, ” John baptized with the baptism of repentance , telling the people to believe in Him who was coming after him, that is, in Jesus.”

    Just to keep the “hermeneutics” straight…

    • Great call! Thanks. My bad on the word selection. I will change that.
