Truth Matters

“The cross simultaneously shows us that God loves us and that sin is truly deserving of punishment.

It’s that second part that makes the first part make sense.

If we fall for the crowd pleasing “gospel” of “God loves you and sin isn’t a big deal” then we have rejected the cross and replaced it with a self-supplied pat on the back.

If we change the gospel so more people will accept it then we have merely affirmed people who are actually rejecting the gospel and simply told them that the true gospel of Christ was wrong all along.

Not only is this a betrayal of the one who loved us and gave Himself for us, it has the effect of supplying ear plugs to those who need to wake from their sleep and turn to Christ.” – Mike Winger
