182: How Do We Know that Our Gospel Message is Right and Complete?
In this episode, Kenny addresses a point brought to him by a regular listener about the completion of the New Testament, the authenticity of the Biblical narratives, and the completeness (or wholeness) of the essence of the Gospel message, as well as the related theological elements and doctrinal components.
Basically, how do we know that the message of the Gospel that we preach today is actually indeed the whole Gospel message that Jesus preached? How do we know that the early church didn't leave anything out (whether intentionally or maliciously)?
