A man who considers himself a Christian, once told me, “You won’t save a single soul by the things you write.” I don’t mean to offend anyone, but why should I care what he thinks?
If we listen to such advice we will not speak at all. And if we error by speaking too harsh a message, have we done the Lord a disfavor? And when men stand before the living God, to give account of themselves, will we have delivered what could have save their soul? Or we will we stand in contempt of His Holy Blood by telling them only, “God loves you”?
The Bible does not tell us that the love of God is the beginning of wisdom. In fact it says, the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. If men will not fear God what is that to me? We are to proclaim the full gospel.
There are plenty of so called preachers who will tell people only that God loves them. The world is rich with those who will preach honey. So by His grace, I determined a long time ago to speak the other side of the coin. I don’t expect praise from those who preach otherwise.
By His Grace
