Share the Gospel, Hope it Offends!

In the 1990s the Porn industry used to say "Don't watch if you are easily offended" in other words "if this offends you, you have a problem!"


Now if you share the Gospel with someone and they are offended we are guilty of a "hate crime" , in other words "if you offend people, you have a problem!"


So if we object to Porn we are "too easily offended" and if we preach "we are offending people"!?


What they are actually saying is "Shut up in objecting to Porn and don't Preach will not tolerate hearing it!"


It's time the church realised that unless we totally shut up and go along with the politically correct narrative, (which would stop us being the church) we will never please the Woke Crowd.


Offending someone for the sake of the gospel is in actual fact a good thing, it means that their conscience is being troubled, and if that happens they are becoming aware that they have sin in their life that needs dealt with. Not all will be saved of course, but they have been warned!


"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us that are saved it is the power of God" 1 Cor 1:18 KJV


"But we preach Christ Crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block and unto the Greeks Foolishness" 1 Cor 1:23 KJV


That's right Paul uses the world stumbling block, which means to upset or offend someone's faith or cause someone to backslide from their religion/worldview.


Now if we read Romans 14 we see that causing someone to stumble in their Christian faith is a very bad thing, but to cause someone to stumble in a false religion/ideology (yes make an Atheist backslide etc), by preaching the truth to them is a very good thing!!!


We need to stop being concerned with keeping people happy on their way to Hell and unashamedly say it, sing it and shout out the truth!
