"A ship in the harbor is safe -- But that is not what ships are built for." (John A. Shedd)
What have You been built for? To Love Your Lord wholeheartedly and to bring His Love and Truth to those who are perishing. But by seeking to make The Gospel "appealing" and "acceptable" have we somehow stripped The Lord of His Authority? Of His Holiness? And in the process robbed ourselves and the lost (not the "unchurched") of the very Power and Risk-taking Courage needed, not for "behavior modification" and "good works", but for TRUE RESURRECTION LIFE???
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes" -- From Romans 1:16
