Gospel-plus Thinking Is a Human Reflex

Despite the clarity of Scripture, gospel-plus attitudes exist in every church or Christian organization. Regularly in our counseling rooms, homes, and pews are those who really believe that because they do not measure up in some dimension, they are not as valuable to God as someone else or as valuable they could be. Gospel-plus thinking is virtually a human reflex.

Yes its probably right that Gospel-plus thinking is similar to human reflex as it is as quick as human reflexes!
