The perceived nature of sin then occasions the nature of the gospel which is chosen. The following word pairs suggest some of the many possible pairs of natures for (sin, gospel): (lawlessness, legalism), (inhibition, hedonism), (revolution, conservatism), (uncertainty, authority), (ignorance, knowledge), (social-instability, institutionalism), (evil- desires, good-inhibitions), (exclusivity, inclusivity), (imperfections, perfectionism), (frustrations, indifference),(poverty, capitalism), (capitalism, communism), (authoritarianism, experimentalism), (unfulfilled goals, technocracy), (inconstancy, discipline), (alienation, unconditional communication). Each gospel presumes to be responsive to the corresponding most basic human problem---yet, almost without exception an exclusive dedication to each gospel compounds the problem which it presumes to respond to. A response to a problem which compounds the problem is not "good news". No power in heaven or on earth can make it be otherwise. Those who attempt to make it be otherwise are violent people, deceiving both themselves and others, sometimes mutually within collusions. The gospel which both has and promotes integrity is the good news that people can live in harmony working together on their mutual most basic problems if only they disavow exclusivity and excommunication as problem solving techniques. The Gospel is the good news that exclusivity and excommunication are not necessary for human fulfillment---that ultimately they are counter-productive techniques. Exclusive solutions to human problems by nature use excommunication and thereby ultimately compound the focal problems---even though the problem-solvers may profit in the short term. No power in heaven or on earth can truly bless exclusive problem-solvers in their work within elite professions---for their methodology makes it impossible for them to live in harmony with others working together on their mutual most basic problem. The Gospel is the good news that alienative methodologies and technologies are not required of the servants of the Gospel. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
