Offended?

10.29.2008

I'm listening to part of Paul Washer's sermon that he gave at the Deeper Conference put on by Way of the Master. You can watch the whole thing here: Regeneration v. The Idolatry of Decisional "Evangelism."

Chew on this today...
We have no right to water down the Gospel's offense or civilize it's radical message... Repackaging the message and removing the stumbling block and taking the edge off of the blade so that it might be more acceptable to carnal men. We ought to be seeker friendly, but we ought to realize that there is only one seeker and He is God. If we are striving to make our church and our message accommodating, let us make them accommodating to Him. If we are striving to build a church or ministry let us build it on a passion to glorify God and a desire not to offend His majesty. 

~Paul Washer
Amen, Brother Paul!!
