The Gospel is Deep

"Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment" (Heb. 6:1-3).

Some regard the injunction above as meaning a leaving off of the Gospel (in consideration of it as "basic") in pursuit of "deeper" things, more often than not an invitation to moralism.

In this post, Nick Batzig sets this false notion aright, reminding us once more that the Gospel is the stuff of everything that pertains to the Christian life and that realizing Christ as the substance and fulfillment of OT typology is key to spiritual maturity.
