DO NOT AVOID THE TOPIC OF SIN

paulwasherPaul Washer:

As stewards of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we do no service to men by making light of sin, skirting around the issue, or avoiding it altogether. Men have only one problem: they are under the wrath of God because of their sin. To deny this is to deny one of the most foundational doctrines of Christianity. It is not unloving to tell men that they are sinners, but it is the grossest form of immorality not to tell them! In fact, God declares that their blood will be on our hands if we do not warn them of their sin and the coming judgment. To seek to preach the gospel without making sin an issue is like trying to heal the brokenness of people superficially, saying, “Peace, peace,” when there is no peace.”

  1. Great quote. Agreed, with the caveat that we acknowledge our own imperfection and talk about sin in context of the gospel of grace. It is far too often that believers take a holier than thou stance or fail to preach grace to the convicted. Thanks for sharing. This needs to be said.
