I must warn you, this video might come across harsh.
This is a preacher named Paul Washer. He is well respected by some Christians because he is speaking “truth”.
He and many other Christians feel that the gospel Christianity preaches is watered down. It lacks conviction, purpose. It is fluffy. The word grace is overused.
Paul Washer ends this part of the video. And he like so many others would tell you this is the gospel.
“My job as a preacher is to preach God as He is. So Holy, So great, So magnificent, that He is unattainable. And I’m to preach that man is so low, and so despicable that even carnal Christians would be offended by my sermon.
And only then would Christ become so necessary, that man would be a fool to turn from Him.”
Do you feel that the Gospel has been watered down? That we’ve strayed from truth. From conviction for the expense of “cheap grace”?
Or, would you side with a statement that someone like Rob Bell would say?
The Good News is better than that.
