There is no room for a “close” gospel, and according to Paul in Galatians, any iteration of the gospel that is not pure on both sides is a false gospel. Therefore, those who hold as their hope these nuanced gospels are to be understood as having not been converted as they do not have the truth.

A mission field is a place where the gospel is not preached and should be. The local church of American Christianity is one of the greatest mission fields in the world!
