The “Gospel” According to Gordon Winkler
Recorded at Glen Valley, British Columbia, August 12, 1990
Transcribed October 1990.
Peter and John, when they were telling the gospel story, they were living the gospel first of all. They were men who like Jesus, had given up everything that they had given it to the poor, and had gone out as homeless, stranger preachers for the gospel's sake. And I just love to think of this - these basic truths that are so vital in our salvation, and have stayed the same from the beginning of time. There's no other way - there's no other way. In the end people had seen that they had been with Jesus. And they were ministers of the gospel, just like Jesus. The people could see that, they could see that. They didn't have a home of their own. Remember that Jesus said that 'the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but I the Son of man have nowhere to lay my head. ' He was a homeless preacher for the gospel's sake.
In my present opinion, I would very happily call myself an “outsider” because I know how miserable being an insider was. And I will certainly not recommend that any “outsiders” become insiders in spite of the love bombing commonly practiced upon “strangers.” When that initial ‘honeymoon’ is over, every 2x2 sees clear enough to envy outsiders, most who don’t leave it stay in fear of hell after the hell on earth inside 2x2ism.
