Currently the is refused because it is already covered by . But the two, while very related, are not the same. covers the four accounts of the life of Christ. refers to the message of Christianity, not the books that talk about it.

Mark 16:15 says to "go into all the world and preach the gospel"

Whether we're debating about what the gospel is, talking about Person X's understanding of it, or have a question related to it, we need a tag for it!

So please, let's allow !

  • I just looked over the tag synonyms, and there doesn't appear to be anything that associates "gospel" with "gospels". – Mason Wheeler May 3 '12 at 21:53

  • All right. I agree with your premise, BTW. If I can't find a way to resolve it I'll take it to the SE team. – Mason Wheeler May 3 '12 at 21:59

    @DoubtingThomas. I find your use of singular ye disturbing. (This is perhaps because I come from one of the few parts of the world where plural ye is still common.) – TRiG May 4 '12 at 19:58
  • @TRiG the correct term would be "thee"? I always mix up which antiquated "you" is which. – Thomas Shields May 4 '12 at 20:03
  • @DoubtingThomas. Well of course thou / thee is singular, and familar, while you / ye is plural or formal. The informal, friendly form thou is used for family members and for God (and is retained there, so that in modern English it is often seen as more formal). The plural form is also the polite form, and gradually spread, ousting the singular form. – TRiG May 4 '12 at 20:07
  • However, the subject form (you) also ousted the object form (ye), and in some dialects ye remains as a plural form (serving for both subject and object, just as you does). Other dialects use youse (Scotland, Northern Ireland, Dublin), or y'all (Southern USA). But these too gradually become singular. As the treadmill progresses, some have even started using all y'all for the plural meaning. – TRiG May 4 '12 at 20:09
  • @TRiG ha, thanks! and LOL at "all y'all", i hear that sometimes (i'm in Atlanta) lol – Thomas Shields May 4 '12 at 20:10
  • @DoubtingThomas. We'll, it seems to be a thing in English that plural you gradually becomes singular and then you need a replacement. Plurals over time: you, y'all, all y'all. And when eventually all y'all becomes singular, what will be its replacement? – TRiG May 4 '12 at 20:12
