The message of the Bible is the message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
It seems however, that much of the modern church little recognizes this all important truth.
Todays seeker sensitive pulpiteer looks much more like an Amway salesman or motivational guru than any of the prophets of old. On any given Sunday, one can hear a most excellent little talk on '' How to improve thyself'' but precious little Gospel truth about the real need of mankind, which simply stated is that our sins have seperated us from our God and the only remedy is for each of us to be washed in the blood of Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Paul said in 1 Cor 1:17-18
For Christ sent me not to baptize,but to preach the Gospel; not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the Preaching of the Cross is to them who perish foolishness: but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
We as preachers are not called to give self help talks. We are called to declare the fact that men are sinners and God loves them and has provided a way for all to be saved, at least all who come God's way. And that way is Jesus Christ and Him crucified. To preach anything else is to violate the sacred trust of the call.
So, preacher friend of mine, let us join together in calling America and the World back to the Cross of Christ.
Let us plead with men and women, boys and girls, to repent of their sins and run into the open arms of the savior today.
