Identifies a number of alternatives to the Gospel proffered by modern views. Among them:

1) An alternative authority

– John 1: 1

2) An alternative world-view

– complexes, repressions, denials, inhibitions,
obsessions, traumas and codependencies are
far more real than original sin or the image of
God.

3) Alternative priests

– counselling as a business.

4) An alternative pathology

– Carl Menninger:
Whatever Became Of Sin?

5) An alternative faith

– faith in religion in general (rather than in
God)

– faith in faith as a process

6) An alternative salvation

– the shift from salvation to self-realization.
