Richard Hays on guarding the Gospel
Richard Hays: “The Christian community as a community of love is not infinitely inclusive: those who reject Jesus are not and cannot be part of it. There is great danger to the church, in Paul’s view, when some people represent themselves as Christians while rejecting the apostolically proclaimed gospel.”
Richard Hays, First Corinthians (Interp; Louisville, KY: John Knox, 1997), 291-92.
