The research problem focuses on the emergence of the Minangkabau language Gospel application, which is considered not in line with the identity and culture of the Minangkabau people. In this case, Irwan Prayitno views that the Minangkabau language Gospel is not part of the concept of Minangkabau society which is based on Islam. Therefore, this study aims to determine the relationship between linguistic, cultural, and ideological aspects behind Irwan Prayitno submitting a letter to the Ministry of Communication and Information of the Republic of Indonesia through the Director-General of Informatics Applications. In this study, the author uses Norman Fairclough’s critical discourse analysis approach which focuses on text review, discourse practices, and socio-cultural practices. Thus, the text represents the socio-cultural reality that occurs in Minangkabau culture. In addition, this study uses a qualitative approach that utilizes linguistic data to see that this research raises linguistic aspects in its application. The results show three findings. First, there is a correlation between cohesion and coherence in the linguistic part; second, there is a significant correlation between the concept of culture and the identity of the Minangkabau people in the cultural aspect; third, religious ideology is associated with Minangkabau values, customs, identity, and culture. Irwan Prayitno views that the gospel application in the Minangkabau language does not reflect the Minangkabau culture, custom, and identity of the Minangkabau people, so the text is used as a means of conveying messages that describe the socio-cultural reality of Minangkabau.
