J. I. Packer says today’s gospel is ‘too helpful’

Quoting Packer, at Old Truth, ‘Whereas the chief aim of the old was to teach men to worship God, the concern of the new seems limited to making them feel better. The subject of the old gospel was God and His ways with men; the subject of the new is man and the help God gives him. ‘

This is taken from Packers excellent introductory essay to John Owen’s ‘The Death of Death in the Death of Christ.’
