SACROSANCT: secure from violation, profanation, assault, or trespass
GOSPEL: the good news of Jesus Christ, who rescues us from the wrath of God and secures for us the eternal favor of God
The central aim of Sacrosanct Gospel is to extol the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As implied in the title of our site, it is our belief that the Gospel is, in and of itself, indelible. In Luke 19, the pharisees say to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” Then Jesus replies, “I tell you, if they keep quiet, even the stones will cry out.” Psalm 19 says,”The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”
As we consider these thoughts, we must not dismiss these words as simple hyperbole or poetic exaggeration. The Bible is communicating a very real truth: The Gospel is so strong, so unbreakable, so beautiful, and so Sacrosanct, that it cannot be silenced. Not only will redeemed men and women proclaim it, but rocks will proclaim it. The skies announce it. The heavens declare it. People with absolutely no intention of sharing the Gospel, can’t help but write it into books or weave it into fairy tales. Even people with no knowledge of the Gospel, find themselves incidentally extolling it. Showcasing it in movies, instilling it in song, and implying it in business. In fact, the basic ideas found in the Gospel are so fundamentally true and the Gospel narrative is so irresistibly compelling, that there is nowhere a person might go to get away from it. The Gospel is Sacrosanct. It is dripping off of the trees. There is no place on earth that is safe from the Gospel. It will prevail!
In Sacrosanct Gospel, we desire to show how the gospel “gets into everything” by following a general posting pattern:
Simple Sunday – Preaching, Worship, Quotes, etc.
Music Monday – Gospel and Music
Theological Tuesday – Gospel and Theology
Winsome Wednesday – Personal Stuff / Poetry
Quotable Thursday – Gospel and Books / Gospel Quotables
Sacrographic Friday – Gospel and Graphic Art / Gospel and Film
Devotional Saturday – Morning Prayer
In addition to this, our aim is to build pages around certain writers, artists, and theologians who seemed to have a certain knack for instilling the Gospel into surprising spheres of culture. To name a few: C.S. Lewis – children’s books, Blaise Pascal – philosophy and mathematics, Flannery O’connor – gothic macabre Short Stories, and Vince Lombardi – Football.
My name is Tim Melton and I’m currently working as an Assistant Pastor at Surfside Presbyterian Church. I’m a husband to Martha Jo and a dad to Callie and Camp. Besides our family, there is nothing more important to us than our relationship with Jesus Christ and the Gospel of freedom that He has so powerfully applied to our hearts.
