Two Gospels And Therefore Two Preaching Styles

Two Gospels And Therefore Two Preaching Styles

The modern church has come up with a seeker-friendly gospel, one where you don’t need to mention the word Hell or ever say much about it. Also, you barely have to tell the sinner much of anything. This gospel is known as Arminianism, also known as the “free-will” gospel. With this free-will gospel, preachers don’t even have to mention sin, repentance, judgment, or holiness if they don’t want to. All they have to do is say that if you want to go to heaven, just accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. It’s that simple. This new easy – and yes, FALSE – gospel is in stark contrast to the Gospel of the Bible.
The real Gospel involves preaching from God’s word about the LAW of God, the holiness of God, the reality and purpose of Hell, the sinlessness of Heaven, the eternal wrath of God, God’s hatred of both sin and the rebellious sinner, the utter lostness of mankind, the spiritual deadness of the unsaved sinner, the blood atonement of Christ, the crucifixion of Christ as the only remedy for sin, and so many other Bible doctrines that expound on the reason why sinners desperately need a savior, the only savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. The sinner has no need of the Good News of the sacrifice of Christ for sinners, if there is no “bad news”.
So many modern preachers are ignorant of the importance of God’s Word, and in particular, God’s Law, in the salvation process. Yet they wonder why people who they preach to are not coming to Christ. And likewise, they wonder why their “converts” are walking away.

Christ Died For The Ungodly

by Horatius Bonar

The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
