The Offensive Gospel – Part 1Play Audio
One of the greatest sins we can commit in our culture is to say something that someone proclaims to be offensive. But what about people who proclaim that Christianity and the Gospel is offensive? The answer to that question is, yes! The Gospel message does cause offense to those who hold different beliefs and it is also the truth. The only way to salvation is through accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
So, how do we share in a culture that has so many different voices and beliefs? What risks are we willing to take in order to share Jesus Christ? How can we share a message that we know will offend someone? For those who believe in Jesus, our mandate is clear;
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:19-20)
