- Martin Niemöller - Sermon Untitled (May 12, 1968)
The Gospel is the proclamation of the redemptive power available to us in Christ Jesus to liberate us from our slavery to ourselves and enable us to live for and with others. Through the historical process of the institutionalization of the Church, this message has been transformed into a piece of church property, limiting its power to affect the outside world. We must, then, resist the impulse of concentional Christianity to institutionalize the Gospel and, instead, affirm the transformative power of the Gospel. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 03:52. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 27:37.
Key quotation: “The Gospel does not proclaim Christian principles but Christ Jesus the Lord, who, as the Savior of mankind, brings salvation from inhumanity to them who believe in him and who follow him.”
