The Slimmer’s Gospel

Everybody has a gospel that they believe, a way of interpreting the world. A cultural story that shapes and defines their life.  We can call it a gospel because it contains

1. Creation – this is how the world/my life ought to be.  What gives people identity?

2. Fall – this is what is wrong with the world/my community/me. How do they account for wrong in the world?

3. Redemption – this is what we need in order to fix what is wrong with the world.  What is their solution?

4. Consumation – this is what it will look like when everything is fixed. What are their hopes?

Jonny Woodrow helps us to see how this works out in the gospel according to “Slimmer’s World.

Tim offers a few more thoughts on this here.
